• Latos threw a season-high 113 pitches in Wednesday's 8-3 win over Cleveland. Price said on Thursday that while the impetus behind leaving the right-hander in to throw that many pitches wasn't to prepare for important games down the stretch and in the postseason, that's a good side effect.
"I'm not a big believer in 140- or 150-pitch games anymore," Price said. "But I do believe a starting pitcher should be able to throw 125 pitches ... I think at some point, if we're going to ask a guy maybe in a big playoff game or a game late in the season, I'd hate to say we extended him 35 pitches because we never got him over 85 or 90."
