FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Mat Latos allowed one earned run on nine hits while walking two and striking out three in the Reds 3-1 extra inning loss to the Braves on Friday.

Latos settled for his third consecutive no-decision on Friday night as he has now allowed three runs or less in each of his last six starts. Sitting 4-3, Latos has had a respectable season to this point, owning a 2.99 ERA and 1.08 WHIP through 13 starts while managing a 57:23 K;BB rate. With the Reds owning the worst record in baseball in the second half it is hard to be optimistic about how much run support he is going to receive, but he will at least give fantasy owners help in both ratio categories if nothing else down the stretch. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Cubs on Wednesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
