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.
