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.
May 5 - 3:40 PM

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.
May 2 - 11:00 PM

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.
Apr 27 - 5:26 PM

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.
Apr 22 - 4:05 AM

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.
Apr 21 - 7:18 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.
Apr 19 - 1:26 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.
Mar 27 - 1:19 PM

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.
Mar 25 - 5:14 PM

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.
Mar 18 - 4:11 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.
Mar 8 - 4:48 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.
Feb 16 - 11:07 AM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports confirms the Blue Jays are close to an agreement with Mat Latos.

Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reported on Wednesday that the two sides were "far along in discussions." Latos posted a rough 4.89 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 42/30 K/BB ratio in 70 innings last season between the White Sox and Nationals. It's going to be a non-guaranteed minor league contract with Toronto, if the deal gets finalized.
Feb 16 - 10:57 AM

Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports that the Blue Jays are "far along in discussions" with Mat Latos.

Nicholson-Smith notes that the two sides have been discussing a potential contract over the past few weeks. In the last two seasons alone, Latos has played for five separate teams. The 2016 campaign saw him split time between the White Sox and Nationals. Between those two squads, he posted a disappointing 4.89 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 42/30 K/BB ratio over 70 innings. Should he eventually put pen to paper with the Blue Jays, his role would likely be that of a swingman/long reliever -- Toronto's rotation is essentially locked, with Aaron Sanchez, J.A. Happ, Marco Estrada, Marcus Stroman and Francisco Liriano all set to toe the mound as starters.

Mat Latos (hamstring) allowed two runs in 1 1/3 innings and took the loss in his return to action Monday against the Marlins.

Latos exited a start last Monday against the Mets due to right hamstring tightness, but he felt well enough to pitch in relief against his former team on Monday. After tossing a scoreless fifth inning, he allowed a couple of baserunners in the sixth before being pulled for Blake Treinen. Both baserunners eventually came around to score and put the Marlins in front.
