Mat Latos’ wife says his latest injury is no big deal

Just when Mat Latos’ rehab had progressed to the point that he was on the verge of making his season debut with the Reds now he might be sidetracked by a new injury.

Latos, who’s coming back from a flexor mass strain that followed a spring training knee injury, had to leave Wednesday’s rehab start at Triple-A early due to a calf strain. According to his wife’s Twitter post it’s a minor injury, but considering how many setbacks Latos has experienced already this season there’s always room to worry.

It was Latos’ third rehab start and he was supposed to throw 90-100 pitches, so if the calf problem indeed proves to be a non-issue he should be very close to coming off the disabled list.
