At the end of the MLB winter meetings, Travis Sawchik reported that the Pirates were interested in Mat Latos. You can find in depth analysis and stats for Latos in the link above. Today we here from Jerry Crasnick that there could still be interest in adding Latos, who is likely looking for a one-year deal to re-establish some value.
The Pirates have added Ryan Vogelsong to the rotation and Kyle Lobstein as a possible depth option in case of injuries, but neither pitcher should keep the Pirates from adding a better option at the back of the rotation. The team also needs more than six options for the starting rotation going into the season, especially when the back-end of the rotation has question marks. Last year, the Pirates had ten possible rotation options going into Spring Training and you should expect them to add at least 1-2 more this year, even if it doesn’t end up being Latos.
