Matt Latos started pitching just five days after knee surgery telling us, "I had this surgery for my elbow in October. I was excited just to get back out with this great group of guys."
"It's like Christmas for all of us. I mean, we work so hard in the off season we need some time off but at the end of the day the guys will tell you a month into the off season your just; you're so used to playing baseball everyday you're ready to go," Zack Cozart, Reds shortstop, said.
