According to several sources on twitter, the Reds have traded 1B Yonder Alonso to the San Diego Padres for pitcher Mat Latos. Latos went 9-14 last season with a 3.47 ERA and 185 strikeouts. He was 14-10 in 2010 with a 2.92 ERA and 189 strikeouts.
So the Reds add another starting pitcher to the rotation. Thoughts on the trade?
Edit: It now appears that Edinson Volquez, Brad Boxberger, and Yasmani Grandal are also headed to San Diego in the trade.
