    Latos instantly becomes the Reds best pitcher. Depending on who else goes, it is a good deal for the Reds if we are going for it in '12 and '13.

    I'm going to withhold criticism until I see the entire trade. I really like Yonder so I hope we didn't have to give up much of anything else in this deal.

    Latos just turned 24 and is not arbitration eligible yet.

    Reds acquire SD’s Mat Latos for Yonder Alonso, Brad Boxberger, Yasmani Grandal and Edinson Volquez. - According to official Reds twitter.

    ****. That's a lot. I was hoping Boxberger was going to be our closer this year or soon after.

    In addition to Alonso, it will be Grandal, Boxberger, and much maligned starter Edinson Volquez, per source.

    Been announced by the reds and those are the players. Tough market to acquire pitching in. At least Latos will be under team control through 2015. Would have loved to have kept boxberger but there are other closers available.

    Latos is under the Reds control for four more years. FIP over 3.00 and 3.16 over the last two years. They gave up a lot but you have to in order to get a 24 year old stud who isn't arbitration eligible yet.

    All and all this could be a very good trade IF they can resign Votto. If the Reads have Votto then Alonso would never have a position. I do not think he can pull off LF

    Re: Reds acquire Latos

    yeah its Latos for grandal, alonso, boxberger, and volquez, which IMO is to much. I would have not included boxberger.
    But does the trading of Boxberger mean that a FA closer signing is near?
