Mat Latos has been scratched from Tuesday's start for Triple-A Louisville. Reds say manager Bryan Price will address when he meets with the media today.
Latos allowed five runs (three earned) over four innings last Thursday in his first rehab outing for Double-A Pensacola. He is coming off of knee surgery early in the spring but there is no word on what's going on. We will have to wait and see what Manager Bryan Price says later today. I'll venture to say without any inside information that the Reds schedule to have him return by the middle of this month will be pushed back. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Aramis Ramirez confirmed that 2015 will be his final season.
Ramirez will turn 37 in June in what will be his 18th major league season. He was a legitimate 30-home run threat during the prime of his career, but now here we are 10 years past that prime and he's more of a 15-home run threat these days. Injuries were a big part of his decline and he's missed an awful lot of games over the years, but considering how bad the third base position looks this year, one last go-around with A-Ram might not be the worst thing in the world. Just make sure you have a viable back-up option. Analysis: Howard Bender
