Mat Latos is on the disabled list with a shoulder injury, but Bill Center of the San Diego Union Tribune reports that the right-hander “looked sharp” during a 70-pitch bullpen session yesterday and will be reevaluated by the Padres today.
Latos is eligible to come off the disabled list Friday, but manager Bud Black was noncommittal when asked if he’d be ready to rejoin the rotation by then, saying only that “all the reports are good.”
After struggling all spring with a 9.00 ERA in addition to getting knocked around in a minor-league game that doesn’t count toward those numbers Latos was shut down in late March and missed his Opening Day start.
