Worth noting

• In his second rehab assignment start for Triple-A Louisville on Friday, Mat Latos pitched 4 2/3 scoreless innings with 81 pitches, including 46 for strikes. Latos, who has been on the disabled list all season, allowed three hits and two walks while striking out three. He is expected to get at least one more start for Louisville before a decision is made whether to activate him.
