The Los Angeles Dodgers released pitcher Mat Latos after he went 0-3 in five starts and one relief appearance for the team.
Latos was designated for assignment September 17, two months after being acquired from the Marlins in a three-team trade-deadline deal that also involved the Braves.
Latos, 27, last took the mound for the Dodgers on Sept. 15, as a reliever in the team's 16-inning loss to the Colorado Rockies. Latos went 0-3 for Los Angeles, with a 6.66 ERA in 24 1/3 innings, including five starts. He finishes the season with a 4.95 ERA and 4–10 record in 112 innings.
Latos was eligible for free agency at the end of the season and is now free to sign with any team.
