Pitchers Aroldis Chapman and Mat Latos will ride in the Findlay Market Opening Day Parade, the Reds announced Saturday evening.

This is the third consecutive year Latos has appeared in the parade. He is starting the season on the disabled list due to a surgery to repair cartilage in his left knee.

It's the first year in the parade for Chapman, who is also on the disabled list after a line-drive fractured bones in his face.

Multiple Reds players have appeared in the parade in recent years. Last year's special guests were Latos and Bronson Arroyo.

Dave Concepción of the Big Red Machine will be the Grand Marshal at the 95th annual parade. It kicks off Monday at 12 p.m.
