— Player Notes
Advice: Olivera is going to the Braves along with Paco Rodriguez and Zachary Bird. Latos isn't quite a Cole Hamels, Johnny Cueto, or David Price type of catch for the Dodgers, but he boasts a 2.96 ERA and 43/9 K/BB ratio over 45 2/3 innings since returning in mid-June from a knee injury. It might be a sneaky-good pickup for Los Angeles.Thu, 30 Jul Rotoworld
Advice: That's if everything else works out in the reported deal that would send Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Dodgers. It's still unclear what the Braves would receive in return, or who that young pitcher going the other way would be. Talks appear to be gaining steam though, so stay tuned.

Advice: No details are yet known on what the Braves may be giving up or acquiring in the deal, but it sounds as though a third team was necessary to make all parts of the deal work. Expect further details to come out as the night moves along.

Advice: Latos and Morse are still in the Marlins' clubhouse and Marlins GM-turned-manager Dan Jennings told the media on Wednesday afternoon that he hadn't heard about any trade being close. Word is the Dodgers are trying to flip Morse to a third team, so that could be the holdup. There's also talk of this being a medical thing. It's going to be a crazy 48 hours as the July 31 trade deadline approaches.

Advice: Wittenmyer adds that the Dodgers will also receive "at least one competitive balance pick." The Dodgers almost surely aren't done shopping for starters, but Latos should fit in nicely in their rotation, as he boasts a 2.96 ERA and 43/9 K/BB ratio over 45 2/3 innings since returning from the disabled list. Morse is merely a salary dump by the Marlins, so he would serve only in a pinch-hitting role in Los Angeles.Rotoworld
Advice: His market is "coming into focus," Crasnick was told by a source. Latos got off to a rough start this season prior to hitting the disabled list with a right knee injury, but he has improved his value with a 2.96 ERA over his last seven starts. The Yankees, Cubs, and Blue Jays have reportedly shown interest in a deal.Rotoworld
Advice: The veteran right-hander punched out five on the afternoon and didn't issue a walk. In what may have been his final start in a Marlins uniform, Latos did enough to keep his team in the ballgame but the run support to earn a victory simply wasn't there. He now owns a 4.48 ERA, 3.53 xFIP and 79/25 K/BB ratio over 88 1/3 innings on the season. If he happens to remain with the Marlins, he'll take on the Padres his next time out on Saturday.Sun, 26 Jul Rotoworld
Advice: The Jays' interest had been reported previously, although ESPN's Jerry Crasnick shot down the rumor. Latos got off to a poor start and isn't viewed as a good clubhouse guy, but he's posted a 2.72 ERA over his last six starts while showing improved velocity. Some team figures to take a plunge on him before the deadline.

Advice: FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reported earlier that the Jays were considering Latos but then later added that he wasn't high on their priority list. Now, it appears that he's not even on their radar. Crasnick also adds that Latos "wore out his welcome" with the Reds and "it's been the same story" with the Marlins.Rotoworld
Advice: Latos has looked like a different pitcher since returning from the disabled list, posting a 2.72 ERA over six starts while showing improved velocity. Thus, it's no surprise that he's drawing some interest on the trade market, although Morosi adds that he's not Toronto's top target. Latos will be a free agent after the season and should be able to fetch the Marlins a nice mid-level prospect.
