Marlins placed RHP Mat Latos on the 15-day disabled list with left knee inflammation.
The 27-year-old has been a major disappointment for the Fish this season, registering a 6.12 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 36/16 K/BB ratio over 42 2/3 innings. Henderson Alvarez was also placed on the DL on Friday, so the Marlins will be forced to find two starters to join their rotation in the coming days. May 22 - 11:57 PM

Mat Latos surrendered six runs in 5 1/3 innings during Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Latos struck out seven, walked two and gave up seven hits over his 5 1/3 innings of work. The Marlins gifted him with a 3-1 lead after the first inning, but he relinquished said lead during a four-run sixth. Following an RBI double by Cliff Pennington, Latos left the game trailing 4-3. The subsequent runs on his line scored after reliever Steve Cishek entered. Latos had to leave his last start after being hit in the left leg with a comebacker, but he looked more or less like Mat Latos against the Diamondbacks. For all the good and bad that entails. He now sports a bloated 6.12 ERA and 1.59 WHIP. Unless any post-game injury concerns crop up, Latos will have a chance to rebound in a road start against the Pirates next time he toes the rubber.

Mat Latos (leg) is expected to be ready for his next scheduled start on Thursday versus the Diamondbacks.

Latos had to leave Saturday's outing after being hit in the left shin with a comebacker, but X-rays came back clean and he's expected to be fine. "It's just a sore left ankle, shin area, but it looks like he's going to be fine," manager Mike Redmond said Sunday. "Like I said yesterday, X-rays were negative and it's just stiff and sore. But he should be fine."
May 17 - 2:02 PM

Mat Latos was removed from Saturday's start against the Braves with a left shin contusion.

Latos wasn't very effective before departing, allowing five runs on eight hits over his three innings. X-rays on his leg were negative, but it's too soon to know whether he'll be ready for his next start.
May 16 - 2:51 PM

Mat Latos pitched a great game on Sunday, surrendering just one run over seven innings against the Giants.

Latos would be hit with a no-decision, as Steve Chisek blew a 2-1 lead in the ninth inning. Even with the disappointing ending, Latos' did his part, scattering seven hits and striking out five without walking a batter across seven innings of work. The lone knock against him came in the sixth inning, when Brandon Belt singled in a run. Latos dropped his ERA from 5.60 to 4.72 and his WHIP from 1.61 to 1.49. He has a 28/14 K/BB ratio over 34 1/3 innings. With two straight quality starts, Latos will try to keep the good run going in a home start against the Braves next time he toes the rubber.
May 10 - 7:34 PM

Mat Latos yielded only one run in 6 1/3 innings to earn his first win of the season against the Nationals on Tuesday.

Latos, recently bothered by a minor hamstring injury, gave up the run on a Dan Uggla ground out in the second inning. Though he allowed only two hits on the evening and struck out six, he walked five batters. Though he has been mostly average following his horrendous 2015 debut on April 7, he has not shown his usual dominance in strikeouts or walks that led to his previous success. Along with a 5.60 ERA and a 1.61 WHIP, he has a 23/14 K/BB ratio in 27 1/3 innings. Latos will try to improve when he faces the Giants in San Francisco in his next scheduled start.
May 5 - 10:55 PM

Mat Latos (hamstring) has been cleared to start on Tuesday versus the Nationals.

Latos had to exit his last outing with a strained left hamstring, but he's apparently made a nice recovery over the last few days. The veteran right-hander is off to a disappointing start this season with a 6.86 ERA over his first five starts.
May 3 - 11:25 AM

Mat Latos exited Wednesday's game against the Mets with a left hamstring strain.

It initially appeared to be a knee injury, as Latos grabbed his left knee before walking off with a trainer. The Marlins are saying he's day-to-day with the hamstring strain, but it certainly would seem to put his next start in jeopardy. He allowed three earned runs in five innings, actually lowering his ERA from 7.31 to 6.86.
Apr 29 - 9:11 PM

Mat Latos left Wednesday's game against the Mets with a possible knee injury.

Latos singled but grabbed his knee as he reached first base. The right-hander left with a trainer shortly after. The Marlins should provide an update on Latos, who allowed three runs over five innings before exiting, soon.
Apr 29 - 8:41 PM

Mat Latos hurled 6 1/3 innings of two-run ball against the Nationals on Friday, though he did not factor into the decision.

Latos gave up a sacrifice fly to Bryce Harper in the first inning and an RBI single to Harper in the sixth. That was all the Nationals would muster against the right-hander. He's allowed four runs over his last 11 1/3 innings to help drop his ERA to 7.31, which tells you just how poorly he pitched to open the year. Latos spoke of mechanical issues during spring training and it appears that he might have started to iron those out. He'll look to post another quality start when he toes the rubber against the division-leading Mets in his next outing.
Apr 24 - 10:06 PM

Mat Latos was saddled with the loss on Saturday after allowing two runs over five innings to the Mets.

This was Latos' most routine start of the year. In his first outing, the Braves rocked him for seven runs in the first inning, and in his second outing, Mother Nature handed him a 40-minute rain delay after four frames, from which Latos did not return. On Saturday, he finally managed to make it past the fourth inning. Latos struck out five, walked one and scattered six hits against the Mets. Other than a Juan Lagares RBI single in the second inning and a Travis d'Arnaud solo home run in the third, Latos pitched cleanly. This was definitely a step in the right direction for the pitcher, who spoke of mechanical issues in the spring. Until he's able to show some kind of consistency, though, it might be best to avoid him in mixed leagues. He'll look to continue on the uptrend when he faces the Nationals in his next start.
Apr 18 - 10:26 PM

Mat Latos took the loss on Monday, allowing three runs (two earned) in four innings versus the Braves.

Latos' night was interrupted by rain, which was unfortunate for the right-hander. He allowed one run in the fourth inning on a wild pitch, then sat down for 40 minutes. He came back out for the fifth inning after a 40-minute delay, gave up a single and a double, and then was replaced by reliever Sam Dyson, who gave up consecutive RBI singles. Latos, overall, yielded five hits and three walks while striking out five. It's hard to start a season off any worse than Latos has. He'll try to turn things around in his next start against the Mets at Citi Field.
Apr 14 - 12:07 AM

Mat Latos couldn't escape the first inning in his Marlins debut Tuesday, allowing seven runs over 2/3 of an inning in a loss to the Braves.

It certainly wasn't what Latos or the Marlins envisioned for the right-hander, whom they acquired from the Reds over the offseason. Latos allowed six hits and walked two, failing to strike out a batter before exiting. Latos is a solid bet to improve on his 94.50 ERA and 12.00 WHIP going forward, and he'll have another shot at the Braves when the two sides meet Monday in Atlanta.
Apr 7 - 10:40 PM

Mat Latos bounced back from Monday's shelling to hold the Astros to one run in 5 1/3 innings Saturday.

Latos allowed six hits, walked two and struck out three, so it wasn't exactly a dominant outing. Still, it was better than giving up nine runs in three innings, like he did against the Mets. We'd be a bit nervous about playing him in mixed leagues early on.
Mar 28 - 5:00 PM

Mat Latos was torched for nine runs in three innings by the Mets on Monday.

"Struggling to find my mechanics, my balance, my release point," Latos said afterwards. "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." With his velocity still down, we're not expecting anything close to greatness from Latos this season. He could still be a solid starter for the Marlins, but he's not someone to target in fantasy leagues.
