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."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Reds more likely to trade Leake, Latos than Cueto, Chapman


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) Although the Reds have received calls on the availability of pitchers Johnny Cueto and Aroldis Chapman, it is more likely that Mike Leake or Mat Latos would be dealt this offseason instead, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said they were "close" to a couple of trades on Tuesday, but both fell through, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. When asked about rumors of a Chapman trade, Jocketty said, "I'll listen to anything that makes sense. It was not something we initiated."


Reds will likely trade one 2016 free-agent class starting pitcher


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said Tuesday he suspects he will have to trade one of the four starting pitchers due to hit the free-agent market next offseason, according to the Boston Herald

Johnny Cueto, Alfredo Simon, Mat Latos and Mike Leake are all set to become free agents after the 2015 season. Jocketty said he would like to keep Cueto.


Rival execs say Reds willing to entertain offers for starters


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Rival executives say the Reds are "listening" to what teams may offer for certain members of their starting rotation, reports CBS Sports Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Mike Leake and Alfredo Simon all are eligible for free agency after the 2015 season, though it's unlikely the team would trade its ace, Cueto, the report said.

Heyman noted that "Latos recent history of injuries might limit his value, Leake has a decent pay day coming as a fifth-year arbitration eligible player and Simon wasn't as good in the second half after a big beginning last year. So none of those pitchers would bring anything close to the kind of haul Cueto could potentially bring."


Reds SP Mat Latos undergoes procedure on elbow


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos said during an SiriusXM Radio interview he underwent a procedure on his elbow. Latos missed time early and late in the season because of elbow issues.

"I had stem cells put into my elbow to regrow some of the tissue in the cartilage missing," he said.

Latos was limited to 16 starts in 2014, which were the fewest he made since his rookie season in 2009. Latos went 5-5 with a 3.25 ERA.


Reds unconcerned with Mat Latos' long-term health


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) The Reds are unconcerned about the long-term health of Mat Latos as the pitcher begins to rehab for the 2015 season, MLB.com reports.

"I don’t think there’s concern that there are long term issues," manager Bryan Price said Wednesday. "I think he has some inflammation. It’s been strictly a rehab process to this point. He’s been able to throw but not able to throw completely pain free. He’s been examined by Dr. [Tim] Kremchek. He’s been getting regular attention from [head trainer] Paul Lessard and training the staff. We anticipate him — without any hiccups, any concerns at all – going into Spring Training 2015. There are no reservations at all in that regard."

Latos made just two starts in September before being shut down with a bone bruise on his elbow. He went 5-5 with a 3.25 ERA and 74:26 K:BB ratio in 102 1/3 innings over 16 starts.


Mat Latos officially done for season


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2014) Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos, who has missed his last two turns in the rotation with a bruised right elbow, will not return to make one last start, according to MLB.com.

"We haven't gotten beyond the game of catch at this time. It hasn't been fluid or completely pain free," Reds manager Bryan Price said.

Daniel Corcino will take Latos' final turn Wednesday against the Brewers. After missing the first 2 1/2 months because of surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, Latos went 5-5 with a 3.25 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 6.5 strikeouts per nine innings in 16 starts.


Reds' skipper not eager to rush Mat Latos back


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/14/2014) According to Reds manager Bryan Price, Mat Latos is highly unlikely to make his next start and could miss the rest of the season. Price told the Cincinnati Enquirer, "We're not going to try to force feed Mat his last few starts if he's not feeling really good."

Latos did not take his most recent turn in the Reds' rotation on Friday, as he has been dealing with a bone bruise on his right elbow.


Bone bruise prevents Mat Latos from taking mound


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Reds right-hander Mat Latos has been scratched from his Friday start in Milwaukee with a bone bruise on his right elbow. Daniel Corcino will take his place on the mound.

Latos has eight quality starts in his last 10 outings. He is 5-5 with a 3.25 ERA on the year.


Miscue, homer ruin Mat Latos' day


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/7/2014) Mat Latos pitched well for five innings against the Mets on Sunday, but partly through no fault of his own, he lost his grip on a victory in his sixth and final inning. A fielding error by Billy Hamilton put Wilmer Flores on second, and that was the beginning of a three-run inning for the Mets, capped off by Anthony Recker's two-run homer off Latos.

Because of Hamilton's error, none of the three runs allowed by Latos were earned, buit he still got stuck with the loss. Latos allowed seven hits and a walk, while striking out five. His record evened out at 5-5, and his ERA fell to 3.25.

Latos' next outing is scheduled for Friday at the Brewers.


Mat Latos allows five runs in loss vs. Orioles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Reds pitcher Mat Latos took a loss Tuesday, giving up five earned runs on 10 hits and one walk in five innings and striking out two in his team's 5-4 defeat against the Orioles.

Latos (5-4) encountered trouble right off the bat, surrendering four runs on five singles in the first inning. He then served up a leadoff home run in the second but buckled down to keep the Orioles off the board for the remainder of his outing. Latos owns a 3.46 RA and 69:25 K:BB ratio in 96 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Mets Sunday.


Mat Latos strikes out 10 in win vs. Cubs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) 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


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) 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
(8/26/2014) 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
(8/22/2014) 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
(8/17/2014) 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.
