Profile: Latos has played for five teams the past two seasons and the results have been poor at each stop. One of the main culprits has been his home runs per 9, which had been a relative strength for Latos prior to 2015. His career home run to fly ball percentage sits at 9%, but in 2015 it was 12% and in 2016 it was 13%, which is interesting considering he put better HR/FB numbers when pitching for the Reds in a more homer-friendly park. Outside of the home run rates, it is hard to nail down one other cause as his numbers are all over place. In 2015, his walks per 9 were consistently under 2 as his strikeouts per 9 jumped around, and then his BB/9 shot up in 2016 as his K/9 went down. The same goes for his batting average on balls in play that was all over the place. His fielding independent pitching favored his 88 innings with Miami in 2015 (3.41) and his 9 innings in the pen with Washington in 2016 (3.97) more than his earned run average would indicate, but the rest of his stops does not give much hope towards improvement. Latos is still looking for work at this point. (Paul Kastava)

The Quick Opinion: The wheels have fallen off for Latos the past two seasons, and at this point, he is still unemployed. An opportunity for some bullpen work may turn up, but even that would be a low-leverage opportunity right now.
