Mat Latos of the Cincinnati Reds underwent surgery on his left knee on Friday to repair torn meniscus cartilage.

Latos was injured a few days ago when he slipped while long tossing. It will be ten days before he resumes throwing.

“He felt something and they looked at it,” Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said, via “He came in the next day and saw there was probably an issue.”

The surgery on Latos’ knee was performed by the Reds medical director Tim Kremchek. A small flap of the cartilage was removed during the arthroscopic procedure.

Previously Latos had bone chips removed from his right elbow at the end of the season.

Latos pitched 210 2/3 innings last season finishing with a 14-7 record and a 3.16 ERA.
