"The elbow feels great; the knee, I don't feel anything," Latos said. "The velocity was there with me not trying to let it go. It's Spring Training, so who cares? The velocity was there, the curveball was there, the slider was there. I can't complain with anything. I feel strong. I feel ready to go."
The Reds expect Latos to begin the season on the disabled list, and he will remain in Arizona after the team leaves camp. The plan is for him to have at least five starts in spring before pitching in the regular season.
