"I think it was a positive all the way around," Price said. "If he gets through everything in the next couple days, I think we can slot him five days from now for his first rehab start."
Price said it's possible Latos could go three or four innings in that rehab start. But the location is to be determined, as it will depend upon the weather and where the Minor League teams are playing.
Jay Bruce, also on the disabled list with left knee issues, batted against Latos and clearly liked what he saw in the workout and simulated game.
"He looked like Latos, honestly," Bruce said. "I hope that he comes back soon, because he's going to be a big boost to us."
