The Enquirer is reporting that Mat Latos won’t start tonight for Louisville as planned.
The team has said manager Bryan Price will address the situation before Tuesday night’s game in St. Louis.
Latos last pitched Thursday for Double-A Pensacola, where he allowed five runs on seven hits in four innings.
Last night’s game in Columbus was rained out, as the scheduled starter for Monday’s game, left-hander David Holmberg, is now scheduled to start Tuesday night’s game.
Whatever the reason, this isn’t good news for a team that’s struggling right now.
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
