Latos has surgery to repair torn meniscus


Reds pitcher Mat Latos had surgery Friday to repair a torn meniscus as the Reds opened spring training in Arizona.

Latos, who injured his knee this week on the mound, is expected to begin a throwing program in 10 days. The surgery was performed by Dr. Tim Kremchek in Arizona.

Latos won 14 games last season and struck out 187 batters. He's expected to be in contention to be the team's Opening Day starter.

Pitchers and catchers reported to spring training Friday. The rest of the team is due in camp next Wednesday.
