Update: Mat Latos (knee/forearm) increased the distance he's throwing to 90 feet Monday.

Latos was quoted on Monday as saying that a mid-to-late-May return "would be fantastic," so this news is quite encouraging. With a record of 51-35 and ERA of 3.27 over the past four seasons, Latos has been one of the more consistent starters in the major leagues. He will be a welcome addition to the Reds rotation and fantasy teams alike once he proves to be totally healthy.ANALYST: David Kerr
