See Ya', Latos

"Well now where will I do my complaining?"

Mat Latos will not get a chance to lose any more games for the Dodgers this year.

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers shuffled their pitching staff on Thursday, reinstating Carlos Frias from the disabled list and designating Mat Latos for assignment.

Frias has not pitched in the Majors since June 30 and had been on the DL with right-lower-back tightness. The right-hander was 5-5 with a 4.39 ERA in 14 appearances (12 starts) with the Dodgers before being injured. He worked 13 1/3 innings over seven Minor League rehab appearances, the most recent coming on Sept. 6.

Latos was 0-3 with a 6.66 ERA in six games (five starts) with the Dodgers, who acquired him from the Marlins in a five-player trade on July 30. The right-hander had recently been moved to the bullpen after struggling as a starter.

Latos, he of the complaining type, lost consecutive games for the Dodgers in early August, both to Pittsburgh (four innings, 6 ER) and then to Cincinnati (four innings, 4 ER). His most recent disastrous outing came in the 16th inning versus Colorado, when he managed an economical eight pitches in order to deliver the Dodgers a loss, after 10 Dodger pitchers before him went unscathed. Latos had five starts for the Dodgers, and only once got into the fifth inning.

Latos will now spend time trying to find that missing T from his first name.
