So it may not be a secret to you that despite the red DL next to San Diego Padres pitcher Mat Latos’ name that he is actually not on the DL anymore. Latos threw 6.0 innings today and only gave up two earned runs on seven hits. Latos is 85% owned in all Yahoo Leagues, but he may be available if someone had to drop him due to no more space on their team’s roster for a DL spot. If you think he’s up for grabs, get him now. Latos is now 11-4 with a 2.45 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP. This guy should be owned more than 85%. He should be among the elite pitchers, and soon more people will figure out how good he is, so you’d better act fast because this won’t last. It’s kind of like at the end of summer vacation just days before school starts up again and you see this girl in your class that, for lack of a better term, blossomed over the summer, you probably should get to her first before school starts and every ninth grade, puberty-crazed guy crowd around her locker. Mat Latos is blossoming right now, and if you wait any longer, he will not be available.
