Latos has elbow surgery to remove bone chips

CINCINNATI -- Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos had surgery Oct. 11 to remove bone chips from his right elbow. It was an arthroscopic procedure and Latos began physical therapy the following day.

Latos is expected to make a full recovery in time for Spring Training.

In 32 starts this season, Latos was 14-7 with a 3.16 ERA. Over his 210 2/3 innings, the 25-year-old allowed 197 hits and struck out 187 batters compared to 58 walks. The 14 wins tied a career high, and he also missed out on a win five times because of a blown save.

Latos reported feeling elbow soreness in the final week of the regular season and was replaced as the starter for the National League Wild Card Game vs. the Pirates by Johnny Cueto. Cincinnati lost the game by a 6-2 score to get eliminated from the playoffs.

Had the Reds advanced, Latos was viewed as the probable starter for Game 1 of the NL Division Series.
