Latos has spent the whole season on the disabled list, as he had knee surgery to repair torn meniscus at the start of spring training followed by an elbow strain while working his way back to health. He also has surgery at the end of last season to remove bone chips in his elbow.
Since returning to the mound he has appeared in four rehab assignments. The 26-year old threw a total of 19 and a third innings while posting a 2.33 earned run average.
Before his last rehab start, Latos was adamant that he was ready to go.
"It's pretty bogus I've got to go on another rehab assignment, but it is what it is," he said. "I don't make the decisions around here. I'm a puppet on a string, pretty much. I just get told to do what I need to do and I do whatever they tell me to do."
