Mat Latos had a tough start to his year at 0-3 but he has looked better in his last two starts which were no decisions. In Latos' last start he pitched three innings giving up five earned runs. Latos is listed as day-to- day but he successfully took part in a bullpen session Saturday and is cleared to start today.

Strasburg pitched 5.1 innings giving up two earned runs in his second win of the season last Thursday.
