Latos leaves game with strained calf
Mat Latos exited Tuesday's start against the Cubs in the fifth inning with an apparent injury.
Latos, who allowed two runs over 4 2/3 innings, left the game after being visited on the mound by Reds' manager Dusty Baker and a team trainer. The exact nature of the injury isn't yet clear, but we should learn more soon.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
