The White Sox have agreed to a 1-year, $3 million deal with right-hander Mat Latos, according to a baseball source. The deal includes no incentives or options.
Latos, 28, will look to re-establish his value with the White Sox after struggling to a 4.95 ERA in 22 appearances (21 starts) with the Marlins, Dodgers and Angels in 2015. He joins a rotation of Chris Sale, Jose Quintana, John Danks and Carlos Rodon in Chicago, with the hopes of being able to eat innings for a team that is not currently projected to be in contention.
Latos is a veteran of seven major-league seasons with the Padres (2009-11), Reds (2012-14), Marlins (2015), Dodgers (2015) and Angels (2015), and is the owner of a lifetime 64-55 record and 3.51 ERA in that time. He was one of the better pitchers in the National League during his time with San Diego and Cincinnati, but struggled badly last year and has been traded three teams since 2011.
