CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Reds starter Mat Latos had an MRI on his sore pitching forearm Saturday, a new problem that leaves him unsure of the next step in his recovery from a knee injury. The right-hander had surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow after last season. His comeback was on schedule until he tore cartilage in his left knee while throwing in February. He had surgery the day the Reds opened camp. Latos was one of eight Reds who opened the season on the disabled list. The Reds were hoping to have him back by the middle of April, but his latest setback has pushed that back. Latos was scratched from a rehab start in the minors this week because of elbow soreness. He threw on Friday but had to stop when his forearm became sore. "Now its the forearm," Latos said. "We thought we had it hammered out, but it came back on me." The Reds were awaiting the test results before deciding the next step. "Mat obviously didnt feel very good yesterday," manager Bryan Price said. "Everything started out fine, then he threw a pitch that bothered the inside of his right elbow and were smart enough to know that we needed to shut him down. "Theyre doing some testing to see if theres some swelling and tightness in the area. Were hoping thats all it is. Were optimistic thats it, but it is a step back." Latos and closer Aroldis Chapman -- sidelined until at least May after being struck in the forehead by a line drive during spring training -- both rode in the citys opening day parade. Latos was frustrated that his arm began to bother him this week, extending his comeback. "Its definitely bugging me," he said. "Im definitely not getting a good nights sleep because of it." .com) - The Carolina Hurricanes hope to remain perfect at home in January on Friday night as they welcome the Vancouver Canucks to PNC Arena. .com) - A chant of Zeke reverberated around AT&T Stadium before Ezekiel Elliott powered into the end zone for his fourth and final touchdown. http://www.cheapbearsjerseysauthentic.com/. On Friday night, after a long rain delay, he was scratched from his scheduled start. . The former central defender calmly nodded it down and quietly went about celebrating a win with his staff. For a man who has had a lot on his shoulders this season, it was an appropriate moment. . The 20-year-old Barkley, whose impressive form this season could earn him a place in Englands World Cup squad, was hurt in Evertons 4-0 win over Queens Park Rangers in the FA Cup on Jan.TORONTO -- Jerry DAmigo has watched the Toronto Maple Leafs seven-game losing streak from the nearby Marlies of the AHL. In a hockey market like this, its impossible to avoid hearing all about it. Now DAmigo will likely be thrust into the lineup against the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night to try to do his part -- however small it might be -- to end the skid and save the Leafs playoff hopes. "Im not trying to solve the whole thing here," DAmigo said. "Im just going to put in my best effort and give the guys some energy here. Hopefully (raise) them up a little bit." Unless DAmigo manages to score or create a big goal, itll take much more than a fourth-line energy guy to make the Leafs rise up and find a consistent level of play that has been lacking of late, even against a banged-up opponent. If theres any time to find that extra gear, its against a Red Wings team the Leafs are tied with at 80 points. "Obviously weve been fighting it of late," winger Mason Raymond said. "But this is a team we are battling with for a playoff spot. Theyve been doing well of late so we have quite the test ahead of us." Figuring 92 points as a legitimate target to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference, a loss to the Red Wings at Air Canada Centre would just about force the Leafs to win out in their final six games. A victory and some help from the Carolina Hurricanes and Boston Bruins against the Columbus Blue Jackets and Wasshington Capitals puts Toronto right back into it.dddddddddddd Coach Randy Carlyle knows this is a difficult spot but doesnt find it difficult to remain positive when speaking with his players. "This isnt a fun place to be right now, Ill tell you that, and theres pressure being applied in different areas, but the No. 1 thing that we have to do is we have to focus on self-improvement by a certain amount, and that will help the team grow," Carlyle said. The Red Wings havent been in a tailspin like the Leafs, but theyve been in the thick of this playoff race long enough to know what to expect Saturday night. "They need a win and we need a win and thats been the case each night weve played probably for 20 games," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. "So were used to the environment were in. It should be a lot of fun here tonight. They need a win and we need a win, its just that simple." NOTES -- Jonathan Bernier is expected to be in goal for the Leafs, which would mark the first time this season he starts on back-to-back days. Jimmy Howard starts for Detroit. ... Toronto is 6-9 in the second half of back-to-back games, including losses in the last two of those situations. ... Defenceman Paul Ranger (neck) is "an option" for the Leafs, according to Carlyle. If Ranger plays, it could mean going back to 11 forwards and seven defencemen, though it was not clear which forward would come out of the lineup. ' ' '
