Update: Mat Latos left Friday's game with lower back spasms.
Latos gave up four runs (three earned) on three hits and two walks with five strikeouts over five innings before leaving with back spasms. The trainers paid him a visit in the third inning and he stayed in, but then promptly served up a pair of home runs the following inning. While it would have been nice to get more out of him in this outing, owners can take solace in the fact that he'll have the whole All Star break to rest and get better.ANALYST: Howard Bender
John Brown is practicing Thursday.
Brown should be a full-go this week and will see a fair share of the targets regardless of Michael Floyd's status. Obviously he'll see more if Floyd is out, but even if he's in, Brown should have ample opportunities this week. Analysis: Howard Bender
