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
