Now we switched gears and talk about Mat Latos. Like I mentioned earlier he has some injuries so teams might not be going at the Marlins at full force for him.
Two teams I can see being interested in the South Florida native are the Tampa Bay Rays and Toronto Blue Jays.

Let me start with the Rays. Some find it as a shock, but the Rays are a good team and probably have a great shot for October, so they can definitely be looking to add a starter.
Miami gets: Tim Beckham. The former first overall pick hasn’t found much success in the Majors and the Rays could really look to move him.
Rays get: Mat Latos
Now what about a trade with the Blue Jays?
Miami Gets: D.J. Davis (17th ranked prospect in Toronto’s system) Davis gets compared to Billy Hamilton as a runner, but his offensive game hasn’t been great so far in his first few years in pro ball.
Blue Jays get: Mat Latos
There is also the chance the Marlins don’t make any moves. They still feel like they can make a run and getting healthy could help that.
