Dodgers release RHP Mat Latos

Friday September 25th, 2015

The Los Angeles Dodgers have released starter Mat Latos, the team announced Friday.

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.
