Player Notes
Dodgers acquired RHP Mat Latos from the Marlins in the 13-player, three-team Hector Olivera trade.

Advice: Olivera is going to the Braves along with Paco Rodriguez and Zachary Bird. Latos isn't quite a Cole Hamels, Johnny Cueto, or David Price type of catch for the Dodgers, but he boasts a 2.96 ERA and 43/9 K/BB ratio over 45 2/3 innings since returning in mid-June from a knee injury. It might be a sneaky-good pickup for Los Angeles.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Braves are expected to send a young pitcher to the Dodgers who would immediately join their rotation.

Advice: That's if everything else works out in the reported deal that would send Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Dodgers. It's still unclear what the Braves would receive in return, or who that young pitcher going the other way would be. Talks appear to be gaining steam though, so stay tuned.

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Braves are the third time in the rumored deal that would send Mat Latos and Michael Morse from the Marlins to the Dodgers.

Advice: No details are yet known on what the Braves may be giving up or acquiring in the deal, but it sounds as though a third team was necessary to make all parts of the deal work. Expect further details to come out as the night moves along.

According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, the reported trade sending Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Dodgers "could be falling apart."

Advice: Latos and Morse are still in the Marlins' clubhouse and Marlins GM-turned-manager Dan Jennings told the media on Wednesday afternoon that he hadn't heard about any trade being close. Word is the Dodgers are trying to flip Morse to a third team, so that could be the holdup. There's also talk of this being a medical thing. It's going to be a crazy 48 hours as the July 31 trade deadline approaches.

Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Dodgers have acquired Mat Latos and Mike Morse from the Marlins in exchange for prospects.

Advice: Wittenmyer adds that the Dodgers will also receive "at least one competitive balance pick." The Dodgers almost surely aren't done shopping for starters, but Latos should fit in nicely in their rotation, as he boasts a 2.96 ERA and 43/9 K/BB ratio over 45 2/3 innings since returning from the disabled list. Morse is merely a salary dump by the Marlins, so he would serve only in a pinch-hitting role in Los Angeles.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Marlins are "growing more confident" that they'll trade Mat Latos.

Advice: His market is "coming into focus," Crasnick was told by a source. Latos got off to a rough start this season prior to hitting the disabled list with a right knee injury, but he has improved his value with a 2.96 ERA over his last seven starts. The Yankees, Cubs, and Blue Jays have reportedly shown interest in a deal.

Mat Latos logged a quality start in Sunday's loss to the Padres, surrendering three runs on six hits over his six innings of work.

Advice: The veteran right-hander punched out five on the afternoon and didn't issue a walk. In what may have been his final start in a Marlins uniform, Latos did enough to keep his team in the ballgame but the run support to earn a victory simply wasn't there. He now owns a 4.48 ERA, 3.53 xFIP and 79/25 K/BB ratio over 88 1/3 innings on the season. If he happens to remain with the Marlins, he'll take on the Padres his next time out on Saturday.

MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports that the Yankees, Cubs and Blue Jays are showing interest in Mat Latos.

Advice: The Jays' interest had been reported previously, although ESPN's Jerry Crasnick shot down the rumor. Latos got off to a poor start and isn't viewed as a good clubhouse guy, but he's posted a 2.72 ERA over his last six starts while showing improved velocity. Some team figures to take a plunge on him before the deadline.
