Reds' Latos out for wild card game with sore elbow

CINCINNATI (AP) - Right-hander Mat Latos has a bone chip in his elbow and will be unavailable for the Cincinnati Reds' wild card playoff game Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

The Reds are hopeful that with a couple of days of treatment, Latos' elbow could improve enough that he'll be available if Cincinnati wins the one-game playoff and advances to the division series.

Manager Dusty Baker had been leaning toward starting Latos in the wild card game until the right-hander told him over the weekend that the elbow was bothering him. Baker says Latos has had a bone chip that has moved to a bad spot.

Johnny Cueto will start in his place. Cueto has been on the disabled list three times this season with shoulder problems.
