Pitcher Mat Latos said he felt fine after throwing off the mound Thursday, three hours before the Padres faced the Cardinals on Opening Day. Manager Bud Black said the right-hander looked fine in his first time throwing off a mound in 10 days. In other words, the bursitis that landed Latos on the disabled list to start the season is all but in the rearview mirror now. "From what I saw, he looked fine and he looked healthy," Black said. Black indicated that Latos will throw a light side session on Saturday in St. Louis. If he comes out of that feeling fine, Latos will then fly to the team's Spring Training facility in Arizona on Sunday.
