Mike Bolsinger’s curveball betrays him at worst time

If you said to me (or anyone, really) in March that Mike Bolsinger would have been worth 1.2 wins for the 2015 season, I would have called you crazy. I also would have been ecstatic because no one — not even Daniel — expected Bolsinger to be this good. So, what happened to Bolsinger?

Angels Sign Mat Latos

The Angels have gone and acquired themselves some last-minute pitching depth, signing Mat Latos off the scrap heap that is late September’s free-agent class. Latos was a very good pitcher as recently as last season but he’s struggled in 2015, pitching his way off the Marlins and Dodgers. Compounding the poor numbers on the mound—4.95 ERA in 112⅔ IP—was and is...

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...

Marlins Flip Mat Latos to Dodgers for -1 Prospect

The headline isn’t the way the Marlins would put it. It’s not the only way to interpret Wednesday’s trade — it’s just one way to do so. The Dodgers, who’ve been in the market for rotation help, convinced the Marlins to sell them Mat Latos. The price for Los Angeles: accepting, along with Latos, Michael […]

Mat Latos posts historically bad outing in Marlins debut

If the first two games of the season are any indication, the Miami Marlins still have a long way to go before being taken seriously in the National League East. Going up against an Atlanta Braves team that seemed to trade away its entire roster, the Marlins have dropped two in a row at home. While Monday’s loss was bad enough, it didn’t compare in any way to the downright humiliating...

Cincinnati Reds: Evaluating trade deadline moves

The trade deadline came and went, and the Cincinnati Reds made no moves to bolster their roster for the rest of this year or for building for the future. There were rumors that they would give up Ryan Ludwick or Mat Latos for help in the infield with the injuries to Brandon Phillips and Joey Votto, but it was a no go. Should the Reds have made a move? On the surface it looks like...
