Reds right-hander Mat Latos, who was passed over for the Wild Card game start in part because he was dealing with bone chips in his elbow, had surgery last week to remove them.

Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that he’s expected to be fully recovered before spring training and generally speaking removing bone chips (and/or bone spurs) are relatively minor procedures for pitchers.

Despite the bone chips and an abdominal injury that lingered for months Latos made 32 starts and threw a career-high 211 innings, posting a 3.16 ERA and 187 strikeouts. And that included seven innings of one-run ball in his final start of the year on September 25.

    Any word on that civil suit that drunken Dallas Latos was going to bring against her drunken assault-dance partners in Pittsburgh?

    Or did all parties just sober up and move on?

    While they are in there, can they snag the one on his shoulder too?

    I wasn’t a big fan of the trade that brought Latos to Cincinnati. But, I have to admit, he had an outstanding season for the Reds.

    wow another young hard throwing pitcher undergoing some kind of arm surgery after playing for dusty baker how shocking. add him to the list of reds pitchers like Bailey,Cingrani, marshall,broxton,johnny cueto and arron harrang and don’t forget chapman has had his problems to. but we are suppose believe it is all coincidence and dusty has nothing to do with it.
