Description: Reds starter Mat Latos has found success his season despite striking out just 5.68 batters per nine innings.
Insight: Latos, who allowed one run on five hits over seven innings in a win at Miami on Friday, is 3-3 with a 3.07 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP in 58 2/3 innings. However, his ERA could rise as his .211 BABIP does. His stuff hasn't been as sharp, possibly because he had a flexor mass strain in his elbow earlier this season.
