Reds hope to have Mat Latos throwing off the mound within a week.
While rehabbing his knee, Latos ended up straining the flexor mass in his forearm which shut him down completely. He's been throwing off flat ground and just started playing catch last week. He should throw off a mound soon and manager Bryan Price said that he would only need two or three bullpen sessions before facing live hitters. He's still a couple of weeks away though. You've weathered the storm this far, so what's another couple of weeks?ANALYST: Howard Bender

Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
