Mat Latos had himself a 2015 to forget, causing him to be without a job until today, as he and the Chicago White Sox have reportedly agreed to a one-year $3 million deal.

Latos had a 4.95 earned run average over 113 innings split between the Marlins, Dodgers, and Angels last year, which was surprising, considering Latos’ success from 2010-2014. The other thing that made teams reluctant to sign him was his reported issues in the club house.
On the southside of Chicago at U.S. Cellular Field, Latos will get a fresh start. While it isn’t a ‘pitcher friendly ballpark’ Latos will have a chance to possibly land himself a better deal from the White Sox or any other team next winter.
