Marlins | Mat Latos placed on DL

Sat, 23 May 2015 10:07:48 -0700

The Miami Marlins have placed SP Mat Latos (knee) on the 15-day disabled list because of inflammation in his left knee.

Fantasy Tip: Latos ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is one of four Miami starting pitchers currently on the disabled list, along with Jose Fernandez (elbow), Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) and Jarred Cosart (head). He is 1-4 with a 6.12 ERA through his first nine starts and has battled ongoing knee problems. Latos is not worth keeping stashed except in deep NL-only and mixed fantasy leagues.

Marlins | Mat Latos expected to make next start

Sun, 17 May 2015 11:11:26 -0700

Updating a previous report, X-rays for Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos (shin) came back negative. Manager Mike Redmond expects to make his next scheduled start against the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday, May 21, even though he is walking with a slight limp.

Fantasy Tip: There is still the slight possibility that Latos ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could have his next start pushed back a few days. If that is the case, Tom Koehler ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) could re-enter the rotation to make a spot start Thursday, or the Fish could promote Justin Nicolino from the minors.

Marlins | Mat Latos day-to-day

Sat, 16 May 2015 11:52:05 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos (shin) suffered a shin contusion during his start against the Atlanta Braves Saturday, May 18, after being struck in the leg by a line drive off the bat of OF Cameron Maybin. He is listed as day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: If Latos ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is unable to make his next start, the Fish could turn to Tom Koehler ($3,400, 6.8% of cap), who was recently demoted to the bullpen because Henderson Alvarez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is close to returning to the rotation. Koehler relieved Latos in Saturday's game and has little fantasy value as a reliever but could be useful in a starting role.

Marlins | Mat Latos pitching well in May

Sat, 16 May 2015 06:37:54 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos has allowed just two runs over 13 1/3 innings during his first two starts in May. Latos faces the Atlanta Braves Saturday, May 16.

Fantasy Tip: Over their last six games the Braves have only scored 23 runs, so Latos ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) stands as a nice low-priced flier for FantasyScore players. Since his horrible first outing (seven earned runs over 2/3 of an inning), Latos sports a 2.94 ERA with 28 strikeouts over 33 2/3 innings. Latos should be viewed as an end-of-the-rotation starter in the majority of seasonal leagues going forward.

Marlins | Mat Latos settling in

Sun, 10 May 2015 19:14:37 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos had his longest outing of the year, allowing one run on seven hits and striking out five over seven innings in a no-decision against the San Francisco Giants Sunday, May 10. He has allowed two runs over his last 13 1/3 innings, lowering his ERA to 4.72.

Fantasy Tip: Latos ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been slowly rounding into form after an awful season debut, and he is pitching well enough to be used at FantasyScore when he draws favorable matchups.

Marlins | Mat Latos feeling good

Tue, 05 May 2015 21:48:10 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos (hamstring) allowed one run and two hits over 6 1/3 innings Tuesday, May 5, against the Washington Nationals. He also walked five and struck out six. "That was probably the best I've felt all year," Latos said.

Fantasy Tip: Latos ($4,600; 9.2% of cap) picked up his first win, but he'll need to string together a few more performances like this before FantasyScore players can trust him on a regular basis.

Marlins | Mat Latos will make next start

Mon, 04 May 2015 04:44:57 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos (hamstring) will make his next start Tuesday, May 5, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Latos ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) had been a question mark but felt fine after a bullpen session. The Marlins have struggled with Atlanta this season, so you may want to stay away from Latos this next turn and monitor how he does at the same time.

Marlins | Mat Latos throws bullpen session

Sat, 02 May 2015 15:46:24 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos (hamstring) threw a bullpen session Saturday, May 2, and said afterward he felt all right but his hamstring was still sore.

Fantasy Tip: Latos ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) may skip his next turn if the hamstring issue proves to be a problem, so monitor his health before deciding whether or not he's worth the gamble.

Marlins | Mat Latos' next start up in the air

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:03:26 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos (hamstring) is not ready to rule out starting against the Washington Nationals Tuesday, May 5. His MRI Thursday, April 30, revealed no structural damage and just inflammation and swelling, Latos said.

Fantasy Tip: Latos ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has pitched better over his past four starts, as he has allowed three earned runs or fewer in each. Still, it is best to take a wait-and-see approach with Latos. Allow him to prove his health and toss another solid game before utilizing him in FantasyScore contests.

Marlins | Mat Latos to have MRI Thursday

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 22:09:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos (hamstring) will have an MRI Thursday, April 30, after leaving his start Wednesday, April 29, against the New York Mets due to a hamstring strain.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners should avoid Latos ($4,300; 8.6% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in one full start without any setbacks.
