Mat Latos (elbow) played catch with no issues on Tuesday.

It's the first time he's thrown since he was scratched from Friday's start with a bone bruise in his right elbow. Reds manager Bryan Price indicated over the weekend that Latos is unlikely to return this season, and that's probably still the case given how little time is left. Still, it seems like the door hasn't been shut yet.

Joey Votto (quad) took batting practice Tuesday.

It's the first time he's done so since landing on the disabled list in early July with a distal left quad strain. Votto has upped his workouts recently and is with the Reds on the road, so it appears that a return before the end of the season is still a possibility. Even if he does come back, however, he'll likely get in only a handful of games.

Alfredo Simon shut out the Cubs for seven innings in a no-decision Monday.

Simon owes his All-Star appearance to the Cubs this year; he's 3-0 with a 1.10 ERA in five starts against them and 11-10 with a 3.83 ERA versus everyone else. The win tonight was just his third against seven losses since the All-Star break.

Brandon Phillips is not in the Reds' starting lineup on Monday night against the Cubs.

It's just a routine day of rest for the veteran second baseman, who's batting .202 with a .523 OPS since returning August 18 from a torn thumb ligament. Kristopher Negron is starting at second base on Monday.
Sep 15 - 3:22 PM

Todd Frazier hit his 26th home run in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

Frazier was one of the few Reds batters able to do much of anything against Brewers starter Matt Garza, hitting the solo shot in the sixth inning. It's been a strong year for the 28-year-old, who has a career high 26 home runs, 75 RBI, 79 runs scored and 20 stolen bases.
Sep 14 - 6:20 PM

Mike Leake allowed three runs on eight hits over six innings in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

Leake gave up eight hits and walked three, so he was actually fortunate that only three runs crossed the plate. The loss was his first since August 13, dropping him to 11-12 on the year. He's had another strong year despite the Reds' struggles, owning a 3.65 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 152/46 K/BB ratio over 202 1/3 innings this season. He's got the Cardinals on deck in St. Louis Saturday.

Reds manager Bryan Price indicated Saturday that Mat Latos (elbow) is unlikely to return this season.

Latos was scratched from Friday's start with a bone bruise in his right elbow. While it doesn't seem like a long-term concern, there's no reason for the Reds to push him to return with so little time left in the season. "We're not going to try to force feed Mat his last few starts if he's not feeling really good," Price said. "It doesn't make much sense for us. I'd like him to pitch, but I don't want to exacerbate an existing issue. He'll have to come quite a ways to make that next start."

Dylan Axelrod (oblique) is not expected to return this season.

It's no surprise, as Axelrod suffered a strained oblique a week ago and it's an injury that usually takes multiple weeks to recover from "The oblique injury is significant enough that I'm not optimistic that we'll see him the rest of the season," Reds manager Bryan Price said. Axelrod pitched well in his brief time with Cincy, posting a 3.12 ERA and 19/4 K/BB ratio over 17 1/3 frames.
Sep 14 - 10:23 AM

David Holmberg tossed six innings of one-run ball in Saturday's 5-1 defeat of the Brewers.

It was the first major league victory for Holmberg, who limited the Brewers to two hits and two walks while fanning four. The only run Milwaukee scored the whole night was on a solo homer from Aramis Ramirez in the bottom of the fourth. Holmberg should get another start next week, but the 23-year-old is a poor bet to replicate this type of success.
Sep 13 - 10:28 PM

Pedro Villarreal (forearm) returned to action on Friday, hurling a perfect inning of relief in a loss to the Brewers.

Villarreal suffered a bruise on his right forearm during Monday's game when he was struck by a Matt Holliday comebacker. The 26-year-old right-hander has allowed four runs in his 10 innings of work with the Reds (3.60 ERA) to compliment a 1.00 WHIP and 8/4 K/BB ratio.
Sep 13 - 5:00 AM

Making his first major league start, Daniel Corcino yielded two runs over six innings Friday in a no-decision against the Brewers.

Corcino was a last-minute replacement for Mat Latos, who was scratched with a bone bruise in his right elbow. The 24-year-old pitched very well in a pinch, giving up just two hits and one walk to go along with four strikeouts. He threw 52 out of 79 pitches for strikes. It's unclear whether he'll get another start, but he made a strong case for himself if Latos needs to miss additional time.
Sep 13 - 12:32 AM

Kristopher Negron hit a solo homer and doubled Friday against the Brewers.

It was his first multi-hit game since August 15. Negron had some fleeting relevancy in deeper mixed leagues while filling in for Brandon Phillips, but he had just nine at-bats this month coming into Friday's action.
Sep 13 - 12:30 AM

There is no timetable for Mat Latos's (elbow).

Latos developed a bone bruise in his throwing elbow while pitching. It doesn't sound like a long-term concern, but with so little time left in the season, his status is very much up in the air. "Hopefully, it's a one week thing and I can make my next start," Latos said. Daniel Corcino is starting Friday in Latos' place.
Sep 12 - 5:12 PM

Skip Schumaker has undergone surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Schumaker has been plagued by the shoulder issue for a big chunk of the season and finally decided to have operated on. He should be fine for spring training.

Mat Latos has been scratched from Friday's scheduled start versus the Brewers due to a bone bruise in his right elbow.

There's been no indication that the ailment is related to the elbow issue that caused him to get a late start to the season. However, it's also not clear whether the injury might cause him to miss additional starts. The Reds should provide more on his status later Friday. Daniel Corcino is making a spot start in Latos' place.
