The Blue Jays are interested in Mat Latos


Fox’s Jon Morosi reports that the Blue Jays are among the teams interested in Mat Latos.

Latos has posted a 2.72 ERA over six starts while showing improved velocity since returning from the disabled list. Last night he tossed seven shutout innings. The Jays, who hit the daylights out of the ball, could certainly use that. Of course Latos is no sure thing. He’ll be making a pro-rated $9.4MM salary and has a history of health problems.

Still, the Jays have real designs on the playoffs and won’t get there if the pitching doesn’t improve.
