Dodgers snag strong starters in deal with Marlins, Braves


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2015) The Dodgers have snagged several veterans in a just-completed three-way trade filled with prospects, per Yahoo Sports.

They receive starting pitchers Alex Wood and Bronson Arroyo and relievers Luis Avilan and Jim Johnson, as well as minor league utility infielder Jose Peraza from the Braves. They also get first baseman Michael Morse and starting pitcher Mat Latos from the Marlins.

The Dodgers sent several prospects to both teams. First baseman Hector Olivera, lefty Paco Rodriguez and starting pitcher Zachary Bird head to Atlanta while pitchers Victor Araujo and Angel Guzman go to Miami.

The keys are Wood and Latos, who will likely immediately join the Los Angeles rotation, as well as Johnson, who has been used as the Atlanta closer.

The 24-year-old Wood hasn't performed as well this season as he did in 2014, but he is 7-6 with a 3.54 ERA and 90 strikeouts in 119 1/3 innings.

Latos is 4-7 with a 4.48 ERA, but has come on strong. He has allowed just six earned runs in his last 26 innings pitched.

Johnson has nine saves, but will almost certainly be used behind Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen.

In return, the Braves would receive prospect Hector Olivera , lefty reliever Paco Rodriguez and minor-league pitcher Zach Bird from the Dodgers, and a 2016 draft pick from the Marlins.

The Marlins are also sending right-hander Mat Latos and first baseman Michael Morse to the Dodgers in exchange for three minor-league pitchers--right-handers Jeff Brigham, Victor Araujo and Kevin Guzman.

None of the three teams have officially announced the deal as of yet.

Dodgers snag SP Mat Latos, 1B Mike Morse from Marlins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2015) The Dodgers have acquired hot pitcher Mat Latos and first baseman Mike Morse from the Marlins for prospects that include at least one competitive balance pick, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman has confirmed.

Latos has managed four consecutive quality starts in which he has allowed just six runs in 26 innings to lower his ERA from 5.49 to 4.48.

Marlins SP Mat Latos good, but not good enough Sunday

Marlins SP Mat Latos allows five runs in loss


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/24/2015) Marlins starting pitcher Mat Latos was rocked for five runs in a loss to the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Latos threw seven innings, but allowed five runs on just three hits. His mistakes -- two-run and three-run homers -- were catastrophic for him, who was otherwise very efficient during the outing. Latos struck out three batters and walked two others while picking up his fifth loss of the season.

"Two mistakes. Ambushed on a changeup. It was right down the middle," Latos said, per MLB.com. "[Wong] did what he was supposed to do with it. And I made a mistake with a fastball away. We'd been jamming Heyward pretty good all day. All of a sudden, we go away, and I made a mistake with a ball up out over the plate -- five runs."

Latos (2-5) has a disappointing 5.49 ERA with 56 strikeouts and 22 walks in 62 1/3 innings this season.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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).
