Latos' value likely increased following a quality outing against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Update -- Toronto does not have interest in Mat Latos but adding Dan Haren remains a possibility, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick:

Original -- Mat Latos might have helped his trade value on Tuesday night. Latos tossed seven shutout innings against the Diamondbacks, and according to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, the Blue Jays are among the teams interested in Latos.

Latos has had a notable amount of success since coming off of the disabled list and the Marlins will likely attempt to deal him since he is set to become a free agent at the end of the season. Although the club might only receive a prospect or two in return for Latos, the organization has the pitching depth necessary to replace him in the rotation. Brad Hand, Justin Nicolino, or Adam Conley could all replace Latos moving forward.

Toronto, in addition to seeking a back of the bullpen arm, is in pursuit of a starting pitcher and Latos might be ideal. He is affordable, has had success of late, and would require a handful of prospective major league players.
