Mat Latos has been getting rocked as of late and the Blue Jays decided to finally let him go. In three starts this season Latos is 0-1 with an awful 6.60 ERA. Mat Latos, 29, is currently in that phase in his career where he is being bounced around from team to team. If Mat Latos gets claimed off waivers he will be joining his 7th team since departing from the Cincinnati Reds in 2014.
Taking Latos’s roster spot on the 40-man roster is the newly acquired Cesar Valdez who claimed off waivers from the Athletics earlier today. The Blue Jays have not promoted anyone from AAA to take Latos’s MLB roster spot.
