South Side Morning 5: Latos’ struggles becoming hard to ignore

1. The White Sox really should have paced their use of Mat Latos magic over the full year. After a nearly perfect first four starts, where Latos dodged all hard contact and enjoyed the cushion a .167 BABIP provides, now he looks like someone overwhelmed as to how to get major league hitters out. Latos can’t pound the zone for strikes–the worst whiff rate on a four-seam fastball...

Mat Latos Remains Unbeaten After White Sox Victory

CHICAGO- One of the reasons why the Chicago White Sox (20-10) have been so successful this season is because of their pitching. And if there’s one pitcher who stands out above the rest, it’s right-hander Mat Latos. Latos improved to 5-0 on Friday night after the White Sox took down the Minnesota Twins (8-21) 10-4. Latos may not have had his best performance of the season, but...

White Sox Buy Low on Mat Latos and His Baggage

Well, that didn’t take long. Yesterday, I addressed the White Sox desperate need to bolster their rotation to be taken seriously as a contender, suggesting Yovani Gallardo as a sensible addition, even with the draft pick compensation. The White Sox apparently agreed with me on the first count and rendered the second moot by agreeing to terms with Mat Latos just hours after the...

Mat Latos could be the steal of free agency

Mat Latos signing with the Chicago White Sox Tuesday will end one of two ways: his rough 2015 will carry over but ultimately not impact Chicago too much, at least financially. Or, his deal worth $3 million is going to become one of the most valuable free agent contracts in recent memory—if only for a season. Several clubs should have been in on Latos. He turned 28 in December...

Chicago White Sox: Impact of Mat Latos signing

Late Tuesday morning the Chicago White Sox made a somewhat surprising signing: pitcher Mat Latos. The 28-year-old signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the South Siders after a 2015 campaign where he pitched for the Angels, Dodgers, and Marlins. Latos is a career 64-55 pitcher over seven seasons in the majors, but his ERA is what really impresses many folks around baseball...

Dodgers DFA Mat Latos, Because Why Not Right Now

Well, then: Sources: Dodgers have designated Mat Latos for assignment. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) September 18, 2015 You know what? While surprising, that makes a good deal of sense. Latos had clearly fallen behind Alex Wood in the rotation and arguably behind Mike Bolsinger as well. Either way, a fifth starter is never needed in October, and considering his ineffective pitching...
