|Mat Latos strikes out 10 in win vs. Cubs |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/27/14) Reds pitcher Mat Latos picked up a win Wednesday, giving up four earned runs on seven hits and one walk in seven-plus innings and striking out a season-high 10 batters in his team's 7-5 victory over the Cubs.
Latos (5-3) surrendered a pair of solo home runs in the second inning but was able to hold the Cubs at bay until the eighth, when he surrendered two singles before being removed. Both runners would come around to score. Latos owns a 3.15 ERA and 67:24 K:BB ratio in 91 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Orioles Tuesday.
|Report: Reds place two starters on revocable waivers |

(8/27/14) The Reds have placed starters Mat Latos and Mike Leake on revocable waivers, per MLB Network Insider Ken Rosenthal, who is further reporting that both should be claimed, but neither is likely to be traded.
The Reds have fallen virtually out contention for a playoff spot with a 2-8 slide, which could have led to the decision to test the interest in Latos and Leake.
|Mat Latos not worth starting right now |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(8/26/14) While Fantasy owners are a long way from treating Mat Latos like a must-start pitcher, he is probably getting a little too much benefit of the doubt. He is currently starting in 66 percent of the leagues on CBSSports.com. Even if a chunk of those owners are dormant due to having been eliminated in their playoffs, Latos is likely starting in leagues where he should be benched.
As I noted in a recent blog post, Latos isn't missing many bats, and he has probably been fortunate to have allowed as few extra base hits as he has. Latos has created the appearance of rounding back into form with a run of recent starts in which he hasn't given up many runs. He has a 2.48 ERA for the Reds in August, but minus a start against an aggressive Rockies lineup, Latos has a 6 percent whiff rate on the month.
Only an 85 percent strand rate (according to FanGraphs.com) has kept Latos' August ERA in check, and his 1.38 WHIP for the month provides a better indication of how he has pitched. Maybe he can increase his velocity along with his whiff and strikeout rates, but until he does, it's best to keep Latos on your bench.
|Mat Latos picks up no decision despite strong start |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/22/14) Reds pitcher Mat Latos tossed a solid start Friday against the Braves.
Latos allowed one run on nine hits over six innings. He struck out three and walked two during the outing. Latos gave up his only run in the third inning. After giving up three straight singles to load the bases, one run managed to come home an a groundout. Latos was able to get out of the inning without giving up any additional runs. Though he proved to be fairly hittable over the start, Latos was able to work his way out of trouble in all but the third inning.
Latos was matched by Mike Minor during the start, forcing him to settle for a no-decision. He’ll take on the Cubs in his next start.
|Mat Latos settles for no-decision Sunday |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/17/14) Reds pitcher Mat Latos wasn't a factor into the decision Sunday against the Rockies. The right-hander permitted one run on five hits and one walk while striking out five over seven innings of a 10-9 defeat.
Latos owns a 3.10 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over 12 starts (78 1/3 innings). His next start will come Friday at home against Atlanta.
|After an up-and-down first season with the Reds, Mat Latos was probably the team's most reliable pitcher in 2013. Not only did he win 14 games for the third time in four seasons, but he set a career high with 210 2/3 innings and compiled his lowest ERA since a Petco Park-aided 2010. Making the performance even more impressive, Latos revealed in late September that he had been pitching with an abdominal strain for the last three months, and after the season, he had surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow. That might explain why his strikeout rate dipped to 6.0 per nine innings after the All-Star break. His stuff still suggests he's a potential strikeout-per-inning guy. Of course, in addition to the elbow surgery, he also needed surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee in February, delaying his start to spring training. He still hopes to be ready for the regular season, but the possibility of him missing time could drop him a round or two on Draft Day. When healthy, Latos is as reliable as any pitcher available after the top 15 or so, and at age 26, he still has plenty left in the tank. Don't hesitate to draft him among the top 25 starting pitchers.
