White Sox | Mat Latos struggles Wednesday

Wed, 18 May 2016 21:52:52 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos allowed five runs on 11 hits in 5 1/3 innings against the Houston Astros Wednesday, May 18, to suffer his first loss of the season. He struck out three batters and walked two in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Latos started the season off strong but has allowed at least four runs in each of his last four starts. He is scheduled to face the Cleveland Indians in his next start and but is a risky option because of his recent performances.

White Sox | Mat Latos allows five runs to Texas

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:06:46 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos allowed five runs on seven hits and five walks through 5 1/3 innings during the White Sox's 6-5 loss to the Texas Rangers Wednesday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: After sitting with a 0.74 ERA through his first four starts of the season, Latos has allowed 13 earned runs through his past 15 1/3 innings. He should live somewhere in the middle going forward, but he has just 19 strikeouts through 39 2/3 innings this season, so if he can't keep his ratios in check, there is no fantasy value. Be wary of relying on the veteran.

White Sox | Mat Latos does enough to win

Fri, 06 May 2016 22:23:58 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos allowed four earned runs, seven hits and two walks over five innings in a win Friday, May 6, against the Minnesota Twins to improve to 5-0.

Fantasy Tip: Latos wasn't terribly sharp, but he still received plenty of run support to keep him record unblemished. He has re-emerged as a must-start in all AL-only fantasy leagues, most mixed formats and DFS play, too.

White Sox | Mat Latos hit hard in no-decision

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 22:21:01 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos allowed four runs and a career-high 11 hits over five innings in a no-decision Saturday, April 30, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Latos was due to a stinker sooner or later, and this wasn't all that bad. He still has a 1.84 ERA on the season, remaining a must-start in AL-only fantasy leagues and most mixed formats.

White Sox | Mat Latos picks up fourth win

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 15:28:17 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos continued his surprising early-season run against the Texas Rangers on Sunday, April 24, yielding a run on seven hits and two walks while striking out a pair across six innings.

Fantasy Tip: While he can't be expected to maintain this pace, Latos is doing a fine job of pounding the strike zone under the tutelage of renowned pitching coach Don Cooper and the results have been impressive, as he has allowed a total of two runs in 24 1/3 innings while posting a microscopic 0.82 WHIP. The 28-year-old is not a recommended start on the road against the Baltimore Orioles next weekend, but he has certainly earned enough respect from owners to trust against non-elite offenses.

White Sox | Mat Latos pitching inside

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 10:12:54 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos, who is 3-0 with a 0.49 ERA in 18 1/3 innings over his first three starts, said he's made more of an effort to pitch hitters inside this year. "It's definitely a funky movement. He shows the ball behind his back and all of a sudden comes up over his head like a pitching machine," OF Adam Eaton said. "I'm glad he's on my team."

Fantasy Tip: Latos has been one of the biggest pitching surprises up to this point in the early season. Injuries derailed an ugly 2015 in which he had an ERA of 4.95 with three different teams. He's no longer a power pitcher that can get out of jams with strikeouts, and he's relying much more on his control. The fact that he has faced three weaker hitting teams in the A's, Twins and Angels should be factored in. It won't always be this pretty, but Latos can be used as a spot starter in deeper leagues in the right matchups.

White Sox | Welcome back Mat Latos

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 23:56:35 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos allowed two hits and three walks while fanning five over 6 1/3 shutout innings to beat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Tuesday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Latos is 3-0 with a 0.49 ERA and a 0.60 WHIP. He was atrocious all spring, and it had some wondering if he'd make the team. However, after his first three starts, he needs to be owned everywhere.

White Sox | Mat Latos off to 2-0 start

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 14:30:12 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos allowed only three hits and one run in six innings to beat the Minnesota Twins Thursday, April 14, and improve to 2-0 on the year. He's allowed four hits, two walks and one run over 12 innings in his first two starts.

Fantasy Tip: Latos does have something left in the tank it appears. But keep in mind his first two starts have come against the Oakland Athletics and Minnesota Twins on the road, both great places to throw for opposing pitchers. It won't always be this nice for Latos, but he can be effectively used in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues as a spot starter.

White Sox | Mat Latos sharp in debut with Chicago

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 16:13:43 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos allowed just one hit in six scoreless innings to beat the Oakland Athletics Thursday, April 7, in his debut with the White Sox. Latos struck out two and walked one while throwing 56 of his 88 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: So much for Latos' rough spring numbers. He bounced back in his season debut to shut down the A's. Latos is useful for rotation depth in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues in spot starts such as this one, but he may struggle to put up good numbers at his hitter-friendly home park.

White Sox | Pale Hose announce starting rotation

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 13:18:37 -0700

Chicago White Sox SPs Chris Sale, Jose Quintana, Carlos Rodon, Mat Latos and John Danks will comprise the starting rotation to begin the season, the team announced Tuesday, March 29.

Fantasy Tip: Sale is a fantasy ace to target in the early rounds of drafts, while Quintana and Rodon are upside candidates worth middle-round selections. Latos could have a degree of bounce-back appeal, but like Danks, the fourth and fifth Chicago starters should be left to cavernous mixed and AL-only formats.
