Date:'s Mark Feinsand reports that Mat Latos has has left The Bledsoe Agency and plans to look for a new team without the services of an agent.

Latos never caught on with another club this past season after being released by the Blue Jays in late May. He'll turn just 30 next week, but Latos hasn't been effective at the major league level since 2014.

Blue Jays released RHP Mat Latos.

Latos was designated for assignment by Toronto on May 5 after posting a 6.60 ERA over three starts. The veteran right-hander will likely have to settle for another non-guaranteed minor league deal on the open market.

Blue Jays sent RHP Mat Latos outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

Latos cleared waivers after being designated for assignment on Friday. He has the ability to opt for free agency.

Blue Jays designated RHP Mat Latos for assignment.

Latos put up a 6.60 ERA in three unsuccessful starts for the Jays. He'll clear waivers but will almost surely elect free agency. Latos is still just 29 but it's been a few years since he's had any real success in the majors.

Mat Latos was roughed up for seven runs over just four innings on Tuesday versus the Yankees.

Latos served up four home runs among the 10 hits he allowed, with Brett Gardner taking him deep twice. He needed 84 pitches to cover his four frames. With J.A. Happ (elbow) and Aaron Sanchez (fingernail) out for a while longer, Latos will probably get another turn. It will come against the Indians.

Mat Latos tossed six scoreless innings Thursday in a no-decision versus the Cardinals.

Latos walked four but held the Cardinals to three hits in the afternoon outing at Busch Stadium. Toronto lost the game in the 11th inning after Roberto Osuna blew his third save of the season in the bottom of the ninth.

Mat Latos yielded four runs in five innings Friday in a no-decision against the Angels.

Latos allowed six hits, walked three and struck out one. Probably any other AL offense would have touched him up for more than four runs tonight.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Mat Latos from Triple-A Buffalo.

The Jays have been hit hard with injuries in their starting rotation, so the veteran right-hander will get a chance to pitch in the big leagues again. Despite his solid run with the White Sox to begin the 2016 season, he isn't a recommended fantasy option in any format.
Fri, Apr 21, 2017 07:18:00 PM

Mat Latos will start for the Blue Jays this weekend against the Angels.

Toronto needs two emergency starters with J.A. Happ (elbow) and Aaron Sanchez (blister) both hitting the disabled list this week. Casey Lawrence will get the other vacant rotation spot. Latos had allowed three runs -- one earned -- on six walks and seven hits through nine innings (two starts) this season with Triple-A Buffalo. He makes for a poor streaming option.
Wed, Apr 19, 2017 01:26:00 PM

Mat Latos has been informed that he will not be on the Blue Jays' Opening Day roster.

Latos now must decide whether to become a free agent or accept an assignment to Triple-A Buffalo. The veteran right-hander had a 6.75 ERA in 14 2/3 innings this spring in the Grapefruit League, after posting a 4.89 ERA in 70 innings last season between the White Sox and Nationals.

Mat Latos gave up three runs -- two earned -- in three innings of work in a loss to the Yankees on Saturday.

He gave up five hits, including one home run, and a walk without notching a strikeout. He sits on a 6.75 ERA in 14 2/3 innings of Grapefruit League action. He is a non-roster invitee to Blue Jays camp and seems unlikely to crack their starting rotation. The team will soon decide whether to take him north as a reliever or cut him loose. He put up a 4.89 ERA in 70 innings with the White Sox and Nationals last season.

Mat Latos yielded two runs in 3 2/3 innings during a loss to the Rays on Saturday in Grapefruit League action.

He gave up only one hit but it was a two-run homer by Jake Bauers. He issued two free passes and struck out three. Latos was a non-roster invitee to camp and needs a strong spring training to have a shot at making the Blue Jays' roster. So far the results have not been good -- he has a 6.94 ERA in 11 2/3 innings.
Sat, Mar 18, 2017 04:11:00 PM

Mat Latos gave up five runs and walked three in two innings Wednesday against the Orioles.

The Blue Jays broadcast crew was talking him up last time out, but this is more the Latos we've come to expect. It seems unlikely that the Jays will carry him as a middle reliever.
Wed, Mar 8, 2017 04:48:00 PM

Blue Jays signed RHP Mat Latos to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Latos will operate as organizational rotation depth for Toronto in 2017 after posting a 4.89 ERA, 1.486 WHIP, and 42/30 K/BB ratio in 70 innings last season between the White Sox and Nationals. The 29-year-old right-hander holds no fantasy relevance at this point in his career.
