Mat Latos (forearm) has resumed a throwing program, he has been playing catch for 3 days.
Latos rehab continues at a snails pace after he suffered a setback earlier this month. Reds manager Bryan Price said, "If we dont have any setbacks, I imagine he could go out and throw somewhere in neighborhood of 45-60 pitches. I think it would be relatively safe if hes feeling good. Following this Latos would progress to long toss, throwing on flat ground, then a few bullpen sessions before any rehab starts, so fantasy owners it looking as if we are talking about almost another month before Latos could possibly join the big league club.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Joe Wieland avoids arbitration and re-signs with the Dodgers.
Wieland spent most of last season with the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate and posted a 4.59 ERA with a 7.28 K/9 over 113 2/3 innings. The 25-year old right-hander once showed some nice promise at the minor league level, but has since faded and seems unlikely to make any sort of impression at the big league level. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but he's not costing the Dodgers too much here. Analysis: Howard Bender
Chris Johnson (broken tibia) is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks.
Horrible news for those who had been riding Johnson here in his return season. He'll miss the rest of the season which obviously blankets your fantasy playoffs and won't appear in the NFL playoffs unless the Cardinals go to the Super Bowl and even then he's be a long shot. With Andre Ellington also battling turf toes, you're going to want to put the rest of your FAAB money on David Johnson. He's the new No. 1 stud in Arizona. Analysis: Howard Bender
