Marlins place Henderson Alvarez, Mat Latos on disabled list


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) After throwing five innings during Friday's 8-5 loss to the Orioles, the Marlins placed pitcher Henderson Alvarez on the 15-day disabled list, the team announced.

Alvarez is suffering from right shoulder inflammation. During Friday's start, Alvarez allowed six runs (four earned) on six hits. He struck out two batters and walked four. He is now 0-4 with a 6.45 ERA. Prior to Friday's start, it was revealed that Alvarez had been pitching with a torn UCL for years.

In addition to Alvarez, the team also placed starting pitcher Mat Latos on the 15-day disabled list Friday. Latos is dealing with left knee inflammation. He surrendered six runs during his last start Thursday.

The team is expected to call up pitchers Andre Rienzo and Vin Mazzaro from Triple-A on Saturday, reports the Miami Herald


Marlins SP Mat Latos stuck on one win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Marlins starting pitcher Mat Latos was in position Thursday against the Diamondbacks to pick up his second win of the season before running into trouble late in his start. Latos settled for a no-decision, as he allowed six runs on seven hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings.

Latos, who struck out seven, gave up a run in the first inning on Yasmany Tomas' two-out RBI double. However, he entered the second inning with a 3-1 lead as Miami surged ahead in the bottom of the first.

Latos gave up another two-out RBI hit in the second inning, as this time Ender Inciarte plated a run on a single. Latos would then throw three scoreless innings before running into trouble in the sixth inning.

Pitching with a 4-2 lead, Latos put the first two runners on base via a single and walk. They moved up to second and third when Chris Owings reached on a fielder's choice. Jordan Pacheco then had a sac fly to center before Latos was chased from the game on Cliff Pennington's one-out RBI double. Owings and Pennington would later score, charging all four runs in the inning to Latos.

The Marlins would tie the game at 6 in the bottom of the sixth, taking Latos off the hook for the loss. The right-hander has allowed 11 runs in his last two starts (8 1/3 innings).

His next scheduled start is for Tuesday at Pittsburgh.


Marlins SP Mat Latos will start against Diamondbacks


(5/21/2015) Marlins pitcher Mat Latos will start against the Diamondbacks on Thursday, despite a recent shin injury.

Latos allowed five runs in three innings against the Braves on May 16th before taking a line drive off his left shin and being forced to leave the game.

Latos comes in to pitch as the Marlins are trying to avoid a four-game sweep at the hands of Arizona. In 37.1 innings pitched, Latos has a 5.54 ERA, 29 strikeouts and 14 walks.


Marlins SP Mat Latos (shin) expected to make next scheduled start


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/17/2015) Although he's still walking with a limp, the Marlins believe starter Mat Latos will be ready for his next turn in the rotation on Thursday against the Diamondbacks, reports MLB.com.

Latos took a line drive off his left shin during Saturday's start, forcing him to leave the game against the Braves.

"It's just a sore left ankle, shin area, but it looks like he's going to be fine," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Like I said yesterday, X-rays were negative and it's just stiff and sore. But he should be fine."

Latos had allowed five runs in three innings Saturday against the Braves before his early exit.


Marlins starter Mat Latos rocked Saturday for fourth loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Tom Koehler lost his spot in the Marlins rotation Saturday. But it's fellow starter Mat Latos who owns a 5.94 ERA.

Latos indeed had it soaring in a loss to Atlanta in which he allowed five runs on eight hits in just three innings.

All the damage was done in the second, which the Braves opened with four straight hits. After the first out was recorded, leadoff hitter Jace Peterson unloaded a grand slam. Latos recovered in the third, but two singles to start the fourth ended his afternoon.

Latos had been pitching decently since his first start of the season and was coming off his finest performance. He had given up 11 runs in his previous 32 2/3 innings before the Saturday dud. He will try again Thursday against Arizona.


Marlins SP Mat Latos exits start after taking line drive off his shin


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Marlins starting pitcher Mat Latos had another forgettable outing against the Braves, and was forced to leave his start after he took a line drive off his left shin in the top of the fourth inning, per the team's official website.

Latos gave up a run-scoring single to A.J. Pierzynski and a grand slam home run to Jace Peterson in the second inning before exiting the game. He was charged with five earned runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out one over three innings pitched. Latos has allowed 14 earned runs in 7 2/3 innings against the Braves this season, and nine earned runs in 29 2/3 innings against all other opponents.

Latos has been listed as day to day moving forward, leaving his status for Thursday's scheduled start against Arizona up in the air.


Marlins' Mat Latos posts another strong start, takes no-decision


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/10/2015) Marlins starting pitcher Mat Latos posted another strong performance on Sunday, giving up one run on seven hits and fanned five in seven innings for a no-decision.

Latos gave up one run in 6 1/3 innings to earn the win in his last outing.

The right hander ended April with a 6.86 ERA but after Sunday's outing has reduced it to 4.72.

Latos' next start is set for Saturday against the Braves.

Starting pitcher Mat Latos earns first victory as a Marlin on Tuesday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/5/2015) Marlins starter Mat Latos (1-3) yielded one run on two hits, striking out six and walking five, in 6 1/3 innings on Tuesday to earn his first win of the season against the Nationals.

The one run for the Nats off Latos was an RBI groundout from Dan Uggla.

"That was probably the best I've felt all year," Latos said.

Latos' ERA continues to fall steadily after giving up seven runs in two-thirds of an inning in his first start. He's now worked his ERA down to 5.60.

After allowing two walks in the seventh, Latos was replaced by Nick Masset.

"I would have loved to have him get through the seventh, but he gave us everything he had and really kept a great lineup in check," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "He threw a few pitches early, but then kind of settled in."

Latos returns to the mound for his next start Sunday in San Francisco.


Marlins' Mat Latos (hamstring) to start Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Marlins pitcher Mat Latos will make his scheduled start Tuesday against the Nationals, FOX Sports Florida reports.

Latos suffered a left hamstring strain in his previous start Wednesday but had been optimistic he'd be able to make his regular turn in the rotation. An MRI on the injured hamstring showed inflammation and swelling but no structural damage.

Latos is 0-3 with a 6.86 ERA and 17:9 K:BB ratio in 21 innings over five starts.


Marlins RHP Mat Latos hoping he can make Tuesday start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) Marlins right-hander Mat Latos, who strained his left hamstring Wednesday, is not ruling himself out of his scheduled start Tuesday in Washington. But he realizes that if he doesn't get better fast, the team must dip into the minors for a spot starter.

The team announced that an MRI displayed "no structural damage" but did show some inflammation and swelling.

"Normally it takes me a lot to miss a start - like a missing limb," Latos told the Miami Herald. "So I'm not ruling myself out. I don't think they are either. It's just more of getting in heavy treatment to try to get everything to calm down. The good thing is I'm walking around. It's sore, not tight, not restricting the flexibility in my knee. That's a good step."

Latos, who will throw a bullpen session in the next couple days, has struggled this season to the tune of an 0-3 record and 6.86 ERA. But he has yielded nine runs in 20 1/3 innings after a brutal 2015 debut.


Marlins pitcher Mat Latos leaves game with hamstring injury


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) Marlins pitcher Mat Latos was forced to leave Wednesday's game against the Mets after hitting a single in the fifth inning.

Latos reached safely at first, but pulled up lame and headed straight to the Marlins' dugout. Latos was diagnosed with a left hamstring strain and is considered day to day with the injury, the team announced.

"Knock on wood that everything's OK," Latos said after the game, per the Associated Press. "Feel like everything is, but I throw a baseball for a living. I'm not a doctor."

He allowed three runs on five hits in five innings of work.


Marlins SP Mat Latos allows two runs in 6 1/3 for no-decision


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/24/2015) Marlins starting pitcher Mat Latos allowed two runs in 6 1/3 innings on Friday for a no-decision against the Nationals.

Latos gave up six hits and struck out four in the outing.

After surrendering seven runs in 2/3 of an inning in his first start in Miami, Latos has now allowed six runs over his last 15 1/3 innings (3.58 ERA).

Latos contributed an RBI single in the game.

"Coming back here after that embarrassment, there was a lot of emotion running through that first inning," Latos said. "Every other inning seemed easier after that."

Latos is still winless and will look for his first win on Wednesday against the Mets.


Marlins starter Latos better, but not good enough Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) It wasn't vintage Mat Latos on the mound Saturday for the Marlins, but at least he was more effective against the host Mets than he was in his first two outings this season.

That, however, isn't saying much.

The right-hander, who entered the night 0-2 with a disturbing 17.36 ERA, at least got through five innings for the first time in 2015. He yielded two runs on six hits with one walk and an encouraging five strikeouts. A home run by Travis d'Arnaud made it 2-0, but he escaped a bases loaded jam in the fourth and retired the side in order in the fifth.

Latos still took the loss and must wait until next Friday against Washington to go for his first victory.


Marlins P Mat Latos gives up two earned runs in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Marlins pitcher Mat Latos went four innings and gave up two earned runs in Monday night’s 3-2 loss to the Braves.

Latos gave up a total of three runs, though one was unearned. He struck out five batters and walked three. He was credited with a loss and falls to 0-2 for the season. Latos' ERA is now at 17.36 through two starts. 

Latos' next projected start is on Saturday against the Mets. 


Scout's assessment of Latos' rough outing: 'Not setting up pitches well'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) There is no other way to say it -- starting pitcher Mat Latos' Marlins debut Tuesday was a disaster. The right-hander, who was picked up in a trade with the Reds in the offseason, didn't even make it out of the first inning -- allowing seven runs.

Latos called his performance the "worst night" he had in six years and was "straight embarrassed."

Perhaps the only positive to come out of Tuesday's performance was that he emerged healthy after being limited to 16 starts last season due to injury.

One scout in attendance gave his assessment of what went wrong for Latos.

“Not setting up pitches well. Some good pitches were getting hit," the scout told MLB.com.

Latos will look for better results in his next start Monday against the Braves. Latos is 3-3 with a 3.28 ERA in eight career starts against Atlanta.


Marlins P Mat Latos gives up seven runs, pulled from game


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) Marlins pitcher Mat Latos did not fare well in his debut with the team. Latos gave up seven earned runs and failed to get out of the first inning.

Latos pitched 2/3 of an inning, surrendering seven earned runs with two walks on six hits. He was pulled from the game with one out remaining in the top of the first inning, finishing with an ERA of 94.50. 

According to the Sun Sentinel, Latos is the first Marlins starter since Ryan Dempster in October of 2001 to give up at least seven runs and fail to get out of the first inning.

"Worst night I've had in six years," Latos said. "It sucks. Straight embarrassed." He said he feels fine beyond a "bruised ego," reports the Miami Herald.

Latos, who is now 0-1 on the season, is scheduled to pitch versus the Astros in his next start. 


Marlins change rotation plans to begin season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Prior to Wednesday's spring game against the Nationals, Marlins manager Mike Redmond indicated he was likely going to keep the rotation alignment of Henderson Alvarez, Jarred Cosart, Mat Latos, Tom Koehler and Dan Haren in place to open the season.

Well, even with Cosart throwing six scoreless innings Wednesday in his return from a blister on his throwing hand, Redmond still opted to tweak the rotation.

Alvarez will still start Opening Day against the Braves, but he will now be followed by Latos, Koehler, Haren and Cosart. The first three pitchers will face the Braves, while Haren and Cosart will pitch against the Rays.


Marlins' Redmond not expecting rotation order to change


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Wednesday he is anticipating the rotation order to remain the same, per The Miami Herald. Henderson Alvarez will start Opening Day, and he will be followed by Jarred Cosart, Mat Latos, Tom Koehler and Dan Haren.

"(Wednesday) with Cosart throwing it's another big step, making sure his [blistered middle] finger gets through the grind of a game healthy," Redmond said. "I'm anticipating if everything stays fine with him this [order in the rotation] pretty much is what it is. But we'll know more after he goes out and pitches. I'm anticipating him being fine."


Marlins' Mat Latos: 'Struggling to find my mechanics'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Marlins pitcher Mat Latos surrendered nine earned runs on eight hits and two walks in three innings while striking out one in Monday's spring start against the Mets.

"Struggling to find my mechanics, my balance, my release point," he said after coming out of the game, per the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "Everything was terrible. No other way to put it… I was destined to have a [bad] outing. I just didn’t know it was going to be one like that. That was borderline embarrassing. We’ll see if we can figure it out."

Latos indicated that he was having trouble with his release point Monday.

"The ball was coming out of my hand good, Latos said. "My release point is off. Normally I’m able to fix something when I’m on the mound. It only took me to the end of that third inning to kind of figure it out. I shortened my stride up just a little bit. I was landing too hard on my heel and spinning off and I shortened my stride up and I was able to get over the top of the ball.”

Latos has surrendered 11 earned runs in 10 innings this spring. He's expected to start the third game of the regular season.


Marlins' rotation likely set, Henderson Alvarez likely to pitch opener


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Marlins manager Mike Redmond strongly indicated Monday that the team's rotation is set, and though he did not make a formal announcement, Henderson Alvarez is expected to pitch Opening Day, MLB.com reports.

Alvarez will likely be followed in order by Jarred Cosart, Mat Latos, Dan Haren and Tom Koehler.

"I'd say we're probably set with those five guys, but I would never say 100 percent that we're set, because you never know what will happen," Redmond said.

Alvarez, Cosart and Koehler have struggled this spring while Haren and Latos have pitched well, but Redmond indicated he's not overly concerned with spring numbers.

"Part of spring training is not only building up your arm strength and your pitches," Redmond said, "it's working on things you're trying to sharpen up, whether it be Cosart working on his changeup, or guys working on secondary pitches they're trying to lock in for the season. I don't get overly excited about spring training outings. I look more at how they're executing pitches, whether they are keeping the ball down. We've missed up in the zone probably more than we have all spring, the last couple of starts for guys."


Marlins' Mat Latos gives up two runs in four innings Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Marlins pitcher Mat Latos surrendered two earned runs on two hits in four innings while striking out three in his team's 5-4 win over the Nationals Wednesday.

Latos breezed through the first three innings, sending down nine straight batters, but a single and stolen base at the top of the fourth put a runner in scoring position. A ground-rule double and another stolen base later, and a second run came home on a groundout before Latos retired the final two batters of the inning without issue. He finished with 36 strikes in 47 pitches.

"I felt good," Latos said after the outing, per the Associated Press. "I felt like I got in a groove early and got comfortable."

Latos tossed three scoreless innings in his first outing, giving him a 2.57 ERA in his two appearances.


Mat Latos fires three strong innings in Marlins' spring debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Marlins starting pitcher Mat Latos made his spring debut with his new club against the Cardinals on Friday. He allowed no runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two over three innings of work. Of his 39 pitches, 22 were called strikes.

"I was good enough to make pitches and get outs when I needed to," Latos said, per the Associated Press. "A couple ground ball double plays, those saved me."

Latos was initially scheduled to make start on Monday, but instead pitched a simulated game against minor-league players because of was a "little banged up," per manager Mike Redmond.

He is in his first year with the Marlins after being acquired in a December trade with the Reds. Last month, Latos indicated the Reds' medical staff rushed him back from knee surgery in 2014. He told reporters he's done talking about his former club.

"As far as what happened, it's done and it's over with," Latos said. "Turn the page."


Marlins scratch Mat Latos from spring debut


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) Marlins RHP Mat Latos was scheduled to make his first spring start on Monday, but manager Mike Redmond said that plan was scrapped. 

Instead, Latos will pitch a simulated game against minor leaguers. 

Redmond said that Latos was a "little banged up" and the team wanted "to ease him into it". While he wouldn't name the specific problem, Redmond said that Latos didn't have an arm injury, and he'd done all his spring bullpen work, as scheduled.

"He's fine," Redmond told the Miami Herald. "We're just being cautious with him and let him get back on the mound, control how many hitters and how many pitches he throws. He's getting all his work in."


Reds fire back in response to Mat Latos' comments about medical staff


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Former Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos, who was traded to the Marlins in the offseason, had some pretty candid remarks about his former employer when talking with FOX Sports over the weekend. Latos indicated the Reds' medical staff rushed him back from knee surgery last spring.

“It’s kind of obvious when you’re looking at it and the (physical therapist) is looking at it, and this knee looks like a water balloon and this knee looks like a regular knee, don’t you think you would say, 'Hey, let’s get some of that swelling down before we do anything?'" Latos said. "But there’s nothing I can do about it. I went along with it because I wanted to be out there. I figured they knew what they were talking about."

The Reds responded to Latos' comments on Monday, and obviously they offered a different viewpoint.

"I think he made some comments when he left San Diego, too. Consider the source," Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey and catcher Devin Mesoraco, who have both dealt with injuries in the past, backed the team's medical staff.

“I never have [felt rushed],” Bailey said, per MLB.com. “I always felt like our medical staff has done an outstanding job from Day 1 -- all the way from Dr. Kremchek to all the way down. I couldn’t say enough good things about Paul, our PT staff, Steve Baumann. I don’t know what kind of experiences Mathew had. I’m sorry he feels that way. I’m sorry that he feels that way."

“The only thing I really wanted to say is those guys in there [the training room] do an unbelievable job,” Mesoraco said. “I fought and fought and fought to say, 'Hey, I wanted to play opening day.’ And they kind of held me back. They wouldn’t let me get to the point just because they knew how much time it took to heal. For him to say that they‘re rushing people to get back into the game couldn’t be any further from the truth. They really had to hold me back just because I wanted to be in there so bad."


Marlins' Mat Latos will get $9.4M salary after losing in arbitration


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) Marlins starting pitcher Mat Latos lost his arbitration case and will receive a $9.4 million salary for 2015, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Latos was seeking $10.4 million.

Latos is in his final year of arbitration. He will be a free agent after the 2015 season. The right-hander made $7.25 million in 2014 after making $4.25 million in 2013.

He is in his first year with the Marlins after being acquired in a December trade with the Reds.
