Latos (hamstring) gave up two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out one batter over 1.1 innings Monday against the Marlins. He was charged with the loss.

EDGE Analysis

The appearance was Latos' first since Sept. 12, when he was forced to exit a start due to hamstring tightness. It seems he has turned the page on the hamstring issue, and it's possible Latos could start a game or two before the end of the regular season with NL East already wrapped up, but he didn't do himself any favors with Monday's performance.

Latos left Monday's start with hamstring tightness, and it is not believed to be serious, the Washington Post's Chelsea Janes reports.

EDGE Analysis

He exited after 4.1 innings Monday against the Mets. Latos was pitching well by his standards prior to the cramping in his hamstring, allowing just one run on three hits, although he did issue three walks. It sounds like health would be unlikely to prevent Latos from making another start, but he could be squeezed out if the Nationals deem Joe Ross (shoulder) ready to return to the rotation this weekend.

Latos was forced to leave Monday's start against the Mets after 4.1 innings with an apparent leg injury, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Latos was pitching very well in a spot start for the injured Stephen Strasburg. He allowed one run on three hits and three walks over 4.1 innings and needed just 68 pitches for those 13 outs. It's unclear how serious this injury is, but we'll monitor his status. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Latos will toe the rubber for the series opener against the Mets on Monday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Latos had a decent start with the White Sox early in the season before falling off the table. While he will get a start after three impressive outings (two earned runs allowed over 17.0 innings) with the Triple-A Syracuse affiliate, and his stay in the rotation likely hinges on both his performance and the health of Stephen Strasburg (elbow).

Latos was called up by the Nationals on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Latos will come up to occupy a spot on the Nats' expanded September roster following an impressive three-start run with Syracuse. He got off to a great start with the White Sox this season, posting a 1.84 ERA over five starts, but quickly fell apart and it's hard to imagine a contending team like Washington would entrust Latos with a starting role (especially with Stephen Strasburg due back next week).

Latos is expected to join the Nationals when rosters expand on September 1, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Latos inked a minor league deal with the Nats in late-June and has spent the last two months at Triple-A, where he holds an impressive 1.29 ERA across 28 innings. The expectation is that he'll join the big league club within the next few days, though what his role will be down the stretch remains to be seen.

Latos is going back to Triple-A after a brief three start stint in the Gulf Coast League, Chase Hughes of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Latos pitched well in those three starts, compiling a 1.64 ERA with 18 strikeouts in 11 innings. Latos really struggled with the White Sox earlier this season but might receive a shot to start again with the Nationals as Joe Ross remains on the disabled list.

Latos signed a minor league deal with the Nationals on Wednesday, Bruce Levine of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Latos went 4-0 with a 0.74 ERA and 0.82 WHIP through his first four starts of the season with the White Sox, but reverted back to his below-average ways in his next seven games, posting a 7.25 ERA and 1.89 WHIP, leading to his designation for assignment. The 28-year-old will now join the Nationals organization, although it will most likely be to serve as pitching depth as their rotation is already one of the best in the league, ranking third with a 3.44 ERA.

Latos has been designated for assignment Thursday, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

Even though Latos has a record of 6-2 for the White Sox in 2016, over the past seven starts he has allowed four earned runs six times and couldn't reach the seventh inning in any of those games. In 60.1 innings on the mound this year, he has given up 31 earned runs and 63 hits, with a 32:25 strikeout to walk ratio. With the recent acquisition of James Shields, Latos will be bumped from his spot in the rotation and designated for assignment.

Latos was rocked for six runs on five hits and four walks in just 4.1 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals. He struck out one batter.

EDGE Analysis

Latos struggled to find the zone Tuesday, throwing just 52% of his pitches for strikes, and he was punished as he routinely fell behind in the count. The loss was just Latos' second of the season, but he has seen a noticeable drop-off since his hot start to the season and has a 7.25 ERA over his last seven starts. There were whispers that the acquisition of James Shields could bump Latos from his starting spot, and Tuesday's result did nothing to quell that notion. He is currently scheduled to start Sunday versus the Royals, but it remains to be seen if that will hold up through the weekend.
