Latos was released by the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Sportsnet 590 The FAN's Ben Wagner reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was pretty terrible in three big-league starts (6.60 ERA) and while he posted a 3.81 ERA at Triple-A, his 24:13 K:BB in 26 innings was pretty mediocre, and the Blue Jays apparently thought they could make better use of his roster spot.

Latos was tagged for seven runs on eight hits and two walks over 4.2 innings in a loss for Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Sunday marked Latos' first minor-league start since going unclaimed after the Jays' DFA'd him earlier this month. It's become painfully obvious that the right-hander has exhausted his big-league chances with his current organization. At this point, there's no reason for fantasy owners to hang on to Latos.

Latos was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo on Monday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Latos went unclaimed off waivers after the Blue Jays designated him for assignment following three underwhelming starts with the big club, during which he compiled a 6.60 ERA and 1.80 WHIP over 15 innings. The 29-year-old will continue to provide the Blue Jays with starting pitching depth in the high minors, but his days as a big-league rotation option could be over.

Latos was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Friday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Blue Jays' move comes on the eve of one of Latos' worst outings of his career, in which he allowed seven runs on 10 hits and one walk across four innings Tuesday against the Yankees. Considering that every team is always looking for more starting pitching depth, it will be interesting to see whether another team is willing to take a flyer on Latos despite his notable struggles of late. If not, he will likely report to Triple-A Buffalo in the case that he clears waivers.

Latos (0-1) allowed seven runs on 10 hits and one walk across four innings in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

Latos was shelled with extra-base hits in this one and was scored upon at least once in each inning, including six runs via the long-ball. He required 84 pitches to toil through four frames before his removal, but not before his ERA rose over three full runs to 6.60. Latos has enjoyed mixed results to start the season and will look to bounce back from this shellacking Sunday against the Rays.

Latos pitched six scoreless innings with three hits and four walks allowed while striking out four batters during Thursday's Game 1 loss to St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

This was Latos' second start of the season, and the veteran righty fared pretty well considering his production over the past few seasons. His velocity is slightly up on both his fastball and slider, which is encouraging. However, Latos is also on his sixth team in three years and posted a 4.93 over the previous two seasons. He lines up to make two starts next week with the first outing coming against the Yankees.

Latos will start the first game of the Blue Jays' doubleheader with the Cardinals on Thursday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old was initially set to pitch Wednesday, but his start will be pushed back a day to accommodate the change. Latos will likely face off against Carlos Martinez in the afternoon, with Casey Lawrence still taking the mound for his regularly-scheduled start in the nightcap.

Latos' start Wednesday against the Cardinals was postponed due to bad weather, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Derrick Goold reports.

EDGE Analysis

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Thursday, so Latos will presumably take the ball on one of those two games. He gave up four runs while walking three and striking out one in his first start with the Blue Jays, and is an incredibly risky option in the vast majority of formats.

Latos allowed four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out one batter over five innings in a no-decision against the Angels on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The results in Latos' first major-league start of the season were less than stellar, but he at least kept the game close and gave the Blue Jays a chance to win (they did in 13 innings). Latos posted an unsightly 42:30 K:BB in 70 innings at the highest level last year and he's not off to a good start in the K:BB department so far this season. Regardless, he may get another chance with J.A. Happ likely to miss another start due to an elbow injury.

Latos has been officially called up for Friday's start against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Latos has a 1.00 ERA in two starts at Triple-A, but he has been shaky, as he has allowed seven hits and six walks over nine innings for Buffalo. He hasn't posted an ERA below 4.80 since 2014 with the Reds, when he posted a 3.25 ERA over 102.1 innings. Latos is only 29, but it's hard to imagine him rediscovering that form in 2017.
