I felt like this might be coming. The talk about Mat Latos
not being untouchable being touchable had increased in the last week. it was also hinted at that he would not be in the Padres long term plans.
Latos had a stellar year in his rookie season but suffered from a sophomore slump of sorts in 2011.
The San Diego Padres have traded pitcher Mat Latos to the Cincinnati Reds for pitchers Edinson Volquez and Brad Boxberger, infielder Yonder Alonso and catcher Yasmani Grandal, the two teams announced Saturday afternoon.
