Matt Latos was an absolute suitcase in 2015, spending time with three different major league clubs.

He started the season as the Marlins No. 2 starter behind Henderson Alvarez. After pitching to a 4-7 record with a 4.48 ERA, he was dealt from the NL East to NL West when he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers as part of a three-team 13 player trade in early August. Out in So Cal his struggles continued, as he pitched to an 0-3 record with a 6.66 ERA for the Dodgers before ultimately being designated for assignment and later released in September. In late September he latched on with the Anaheim Angels and pitched to a 4.91 ERA in two games out of the Halo’s bullpen.

Keep in mind that 2015 was the first time Latos pitched to an ERA over 3.50 since his rookie season in 2009 with the San Diego Padres, and on top of  that, the hard-throwing right hander is still in his 20’s.

Look for The Bledsoe Agency Client to have a prime bounce back season in 2016, and why not have it in pinstripes?
