Mat Latos - Next best target?

Recommended Posts

Latos seems like an ideal guy to take a chance on, high upside.

FanGraphs:

Mat Latos

Some relevant information regarding Latos:

Has averaged 143 IP and 2.7 WAR over last three seasons.

Has averaged 3.7 WAR per 200 IP* over last three seasons.

Recorded a 1.5 WAR in 116.1 IP in 2015.

Is projected to record 2.2 WAR per 200 IP**.

Is entering his age-28 season.

Made $9.4M in 2015, as part of deal signed in February 2015.

His IP dropped of the last 2 years. Injuries?

Are those 116 big innings in 2016 due to injury?

But will he take a short deal in Baltimore? If this is a bounce back contract he should stay in the NL in a pitchers park.

Those IP and ERA+ numbers are attractive, if he can return to form.

Kenny did an interview last year when with Marlins:

"Q: So, were you happy to be traded?

A: In a sense. It sucks ? that was a great group of guys I got to play with, a great coaching staff, a great owner. But I guess I just wasn?t a fit. They wanted to go in another direction. They wanted to try and keep (Johnny) Cueto, lock Cueto up. It is what it is.

They traded me here. There could have been a lot worse places I could have been traded to. At least I?m familiar and comfortable with Miami. So, it?s fine. It was home for me for quite some time; I basically lived here for 22 years.

I accept it. I?m happy they traded me. Obviously, if I wasn?t a fit, they didn?t need me or want me there, then yeah, get rid of me. "

" You look at the Reds after we lost Bronson (Arroyo, after the 2013 season). Everything went to s---. You look at it after we lost Scott Rolen (after 2012). Everything went to s---. When Scott was there, we had guys doing exactly what they were supposed to do. After Scott left, we had guys with two years in the big leagues, in the clubhouse, on their phones, laying down in the video room, just hanging out during games, not in the dugout, not cheering their teammates on. Our dugout looked like a ghost town.

After Bronson, the same exact thing. We had starters in there roping our (clubhouse attendants), like, cattle-roping our clubbies. Guys on their computers, buying stuff, hanging out in the clubhouse. We had a guy with a year-and-a-half in the big leagues wandering around the clubhouse, hanging out. We had a closer in there sleeping until the seventh inning. We lose that veteran leadership, that?s what happens. You can?t have that ... it turns into a circus. "

Like Davis and O'day?

Eh, not exactly my point. I think we are more serious about these guys than the FA is.

We'll see. They terribly flubbed last year's OF, trusting too much in the cast of retreads. They seem to be doing the same with this year's rotation.
