GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Although he turned his left ankle during a pitch in a Minor League game on Wednesday, Reds pitcher Mat Latos was feeling fine following his two-inning start. It was his first game since having Feb. 14 left knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus cartilage and October elbow surgery to remove bone chips.

"His arm felt good. He felt fine. He felt strong," manager Bryan Price said Thursday. "We don't see any reason why he wouldn't make his next start on schedule."

That next start will be Monday when Latos is slated to throw three innings and between 45-50 pitches. His following outing would come March 29 if there are no complications. Whether these games are in big league or Minor League settings remains unclear.

"Within the next 24 hours, I should have a better understanding where that should be," Price said.
