Jocketty on Latos trade to Miami
Just talked to Walt Jocketty about the second trade of the day…
“Mat had a great career with us while he was here,” Jocketty said. “When I spoke to him he was grateful for the opportunity here. We’ll miss him because he was obviously a great pitcher for us. I think he will do well for Miami.
“We think DeSclafani will be a guy that will pitch in our rotation. He made some great strides at the end of the year. He went to the [Arizona] Fall League to work on some things. They say he made a lot of improvement. We see him fitting in the rotation.
“Chad Wallach adds to our catching depth. We really lacked depth in catching and middle infield. This will improve that.”
