Mat Latos will not make Opening Day roster for Blue Jays

Mat Latos has been told by the Blue Jays he will not make the major league roster. According to Jays radio broadcaster Mike Wilner, the 29-year-old needs to decide if he wants to accept a Triple-A assignment or elect as a free agent. Latos was signed to a minor-league deal in February with an invite to major league camp. He has eight seasons under his belt with a career 3.60 ERA...

Assembling a Free Agent Rotation: Mat Latos

Another day, another look into the dire market of free agent starting pitching. We’ve reached Day 4 of this rotation-building exercise, and today might be the weirdest. Day 1 brought us Henderson Álvarez, a pitcher with a lot of injury risk but plenty of upside. Day 2 there was Jhoulys Chacín, a youthful veteran coming off an excellent second half. And Wednesday, Jeremy Hellickson...

Mat Latos to make first start Monday for the Nationals vs. the Mets

The Nationals signed Mat Latos to a minor league contract in mid-June with September in mind. The club believed the veteran right-hander could provide depth down the stretch at the major league level if he got into better shape and pitched well in the minors. The thinking was Latos is only 28 and the White Sox might’ve given […]

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 post...

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.

Latos is a career 64-55 pitcher over seven seasons in the majors, but his ERA is what really impresses many folks around baseball...

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Just Which Mat Latos Would We Be Signing, Anyway?

Just a month or two ago, the idea of the Milwaukee Brewers as legitimate free-agency buyers seemed outright ludicrous. The team’s eyes were set firmly toward the future, and the crop of players hitting the free agency market trended towards “older” and “really expensive.” As the rival Chicago Cubs put in their bid to buy the NL Central for the foreseeable future, the Brewers — to...
