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.
