Mat Latos gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk with ten strikeouts over seven innings but picked up his fifth win of the year for the Reds on Wednesday.
Despite allowing a seven game-high four runs, Latos was able to escape with his fifth victory, which was his first in four tries. Although his strikeouts are down this season (67 K through 91.1 IP), the Reds young hurler is sitting on a 3.15 ERA and 1.08 WHIP making him a solid starter to deploy the rest of the way especially with his opposition hitting only .223 against him up to this point in the year. He will look to keep moving in the right direction when he takes on the Orioles on Tuesday. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Luc Mbah a Moute will start at SF for the Clippers on Monday.
If fantasy owners want to use Mbah a Moute this season, this might be their only chance, as he is getting a rare spot start at small forward for the Clips on Monday night. He offers little upside as a scorer, however he is a solid rebounder and above-average defender, so he might get the job done for fantasy owners in a bind. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Kenneth Faried will start Monday against the Bucks.
Faried should be started in all fantasy formats, now that he has been given the green light to start by both the coaching and medical staffs. He proved off the bench in his last outing that he can post fantasy worthy production in even limited minutes, so his prospects should be good as a starter on Monday night against the Bucks.

Robert Quinn is making progress from his back issue.
After missing Sunday's game, Quinn seems to be making steps toward's returning. Quinn is one of the game's elite pass rushers but has been slowed down by injuries all season long. Quinn is two years removed from a 19 sack season and the Rams are hoping he returns to that when he gets back on the field. Analysis: James Grande
