Latos, who has a 9.00 ERA and 5/9 K/BB ratio over 10 innings this spring, was scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday due to an inflamed bursa sac in his throwing shoulder. The young right-hander still felt some pain after doing some rehab work on Friday, but said this morning that he felt fine over the past two days.
There’s reason for concern anytime you start talking about a pitcher’s shoulder, but it’s worth noting that the Padres can go with four starters until April 11. Can’t blame the Padres for being cautious here. Hayes writes that the Padres are confident that Latos “has turned a corner” and that he’s still still scheduled to throw Tuesday, so it’s possible that he’s not that far away.
