He won’t know for sure until the physicals are complete, but Reds manager Bryan Price expects a healthy team when spring training starts.

And we’re almost there. Pitchers and catchers report Friday morning. Position players report the morning of Wednesday, Feb. 19. The first full squad workout will be that afternoon.

The Reds have a long list of players coming off injuries from last year: Mat Latos (elbow surgery), Jonathan Broxton (elbow surgery), Sean Marshall (shoulder), Ryan Ludwick (shoulder) and Johnny Cueto (lat strain).

All should be ready.

“To a certain degree,” Price said. “I think we’re going to be fine. We may not be what you would anticipate as being ready for the first day of spring training, but I don’t believe that anybody will be terribly far behind.
