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
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
