WASHINGTON — Mat Latos is set to make his first start as a member of the Nationals on Monday, the team announced.
Latos, 28, has 185 career starts to his name. He’s compiled a 71-57 record with a 3.58 ERA and a 1.198 WHIP over that time, and he’s managed a 994-340 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
He signed with the Nationals in June after the Chicago White Sox cut him — he was 6-2 with a 4.62 ERA and 1.459 WHIP in 11 games before his release — and he was added to the big-league roster at the end of August.
He has since appeared in two games with Washington, pitching 2.1 innings earlier this month. He struggled against the New York Mets on Sept. 4, allowing two earned runs in 2.0 innings in a 5-1 loss, then he struck out one batter to get a win against the Atlanta Braves on Sept. 7.
