MLB Injury News:
The Cincinnati Reds got a scare yesterday with Mat Latos on the mound. Their young pitcher, whom they hope will develop into an ace, took a line drive off his leg during his start yesterday. Latos had to leave the game, but the Reds hope the injury is just minor.
Latos just took a Soto liner off of the right shin it appeared. He's limping around, and now exiting the game. in the 6th #reds

Latos came to the Reds in a trade with the Padres. He has been solid since joining Cincinnati, but he still has room for improvement. Latos was always a good pitcher in San Diego, and the Padres would have loved to have kept him, but they hauled in a great package in return.
Latos went 14-4 last season with a 3.48 ERA. He was impressive, and he pitched more innings in 2012 than he has in his career. Over his four seasons in the Majors, Latos is 41-33 with a 3.41 ERA.

It was yet another loss for the Reds yesterday. They lost 2-4 while visiting the Rangers in Surprise, AZ. The game was televised on the MLB Network, so I got to watch a Reds lineup minus Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips while I put in my time on the treadmill. It was so meta.

With Cincinnati’s suits finally making a decision, Reds flamethrower Aroldis Chapman will remain the team’s closer this season. The 25-year-old Chapman (5-5, 1.51 ERA), who defected from Cuba in 2009 and signed a six-year contract worth $30.25 million with the Reds in January 2010, saved 38 games in 2012. “We made a decision on our rotation. It’s (Johnny) Cueto, (Mat) Latos...

When Cincinnati broke from spring training one year ago it appeared that Todd Frazier had landed a spot on the opening day active roster until a disappointing move sent him to Louisville right before opening day. That didn’t stop him from becoming one of top run producers for the Reds last year. Now he’s ready for regular duty at third base as the Reds vie for another trip to the postseason.
The weekend was full of plenty of news. First and foremost was the Aroldis Chapman will close decision. While that isn’t minor league related, it does lead to minor league decisions. That may push a “loogy” out of their role that was present with Chapman as a starter, opening a spot for JJ Hoover. Of course, there are still plenty of reasons to believe that JJ Hoover winds...
Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo left his start after getting hit on his pitching hand by David Murphy's line drive Sunday in Cincinnati's 7-2 loss to the Texas Rangers.
Preliminary X-rays detected no break. Arroyo allowed three runs and nine hits in 5 1-3 innings before being led off the field by a trainer.

Yu Darvish gave up homers to Joey Votto and Todd Frazier but showed no problems with a stiff neck that forced him to be scratched from his previous start, and the Texas Rangers beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-2 on Saturday.
Darvish gave up three hits in five innings, including the two homers. He had to miss his scheduled start last Monday.
Votto's homer was his third of spring training...
