Mat Latos to Start Season on the DL
Mat Latos’ shoulder continues to be troublesome forcing the gifted young Padres ace to start the year on the disabled list. Latos is eligible to come off the DL on April 6th meaning he will likely only miss a start or two.
Latos has struggled this spring sporting a 9.00 ERA, 2.50 WHIP, and .381 BAA, but was 14-10 with a 2.92 ERA. He wore down at the end of the year posting a 6.21 ERA in September so maybe this will be a blessing in disguise as he keeps his innings down. In reality that could just be what I’m telling myself because I have Latos on one of my teams.
