Reds Reds land Latos in five-player deal with Padres

Quote:
The Reds finally got the top-of-the-rotation arm they had been searching for on Saturday, acquiring right-hander Mat Latos from the Padres in exchange for right-hander Edinson Volquez and three of the club's top prospects.

"Our offseason objective was to try to upgrade our rotation and add a top-of-the-rotation starter, and Mat Latos, of the potential players available, he's still young at [24] and he's a power pitcher we think will pitch well in our park," Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said on a conference call with reporters. "He's definitely a top-of-the rotation guy who will slot in well behind [Johnny] Cueto and, in time, will develop into a No. 1 starter."

In order to acquire a young starter with the potential of Latos, who went 9-14 with a 3.47 ERA and help opponents to a .233 batting average for the Padres last season, the Reds gave up four young players with similar upside. Along with Volquez, the Reds also sent infielder Yonder Alonso, right-hander Brad Boxberger and catcher Yasmani Grandal to San Diego.

I wish NashvillieJohn was still around. He probably is so happy!!!! This is exactly what the Reds needed. Their starters were horrible last year and Latos is a potential number one. I really like Matt, even though the Reds did have to give up a lot for him.

This was a great trade for both teams. Padres get the long term offensive support they need (and Edinson Volquez...lol) and the Reds get an extremely talented, cheap, team controlled pitcher for 3 years at the minimum.
