MLB's Mat Latos Hit with Restraining Order Allegedly Terrorized Ex-GF

9/28/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mat Latos -- an ex-MLB pitcher who made $28 mil in the bigs -- has been ordered to stay away from his ex-girlfriend after allegedly slashing her tires and threatening to kill her. 

TMZ Sports has obtained court docs which show Mat's ex-girlfriend went to authorities in Florida to report several incidents in which she claims Mat physically and emotionally abused her ... dating back to 2017. 

According to court docs, the woman claims the first incident occurred back in Sept. '17 -- when Mat got angry and flipped over a bed while she was still on it. 

"He tackled me to the floor, picked me up and slammed me on the couch where he got on top of me pressing his forearm on my throat."

The woman claims Latos then backed her into a wall and told her, "I'll f**king kill you."

"He then spit on me, put water in his mouth and spit more."

She claims the abuse continued in January 2018 -- when Latos locked her in her closet.  

In April 2018, the woman claims Latos slashed her tires with a knife. She reported that incident to police. 

In August 2018, the woman claims Latos got violent again -- but this time she hit back, elbowing him in the jaw. She claims a witness will back up her account. 

The woman claims she's in fear for her life -- especially since Latos owns "multiple guns."

A judge granted a restraining order on August 28 requiring Latos to keep at least 500 feet from the woman at all times -- and it's been extended until October when the case is due back in court. 

We reached out to Latos for comment. So far, no word back. 

30-year-old Latos was a stud during his 9 seasons in the Big Leagues -- striking out more than 1,000 batters while playing for the Reds, Padres, Blue Jays and other teams. 

His best year was 2010 when he finished 8th in the Cy Young award voting.

Blue Jays' Kevin Pillar Apologizes For Gay Slur 'Not Who I Am'

1:42 PM PT -- The MLB and Blue Jays have suspended Pillar for two games. Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar is apologizing for using the homophobic f-word in a verbal attack on a Braves pitcher during Wednesday's game ... saying, "This is not who I am."

Pillar mouthed the word to Jason Motte after he struck out during the 7th inning. Both teams stormed the field but miraculously, it didn't get violent.

Now, Pillar is owning up to hurling the horrible slur -- "[By using that word], I had just helped extend the use of a word that has no place in baseball, in sports or anywhere in society today."

"I'm completely and utterly embarrassed and feel horrible to have put the fans, my teammates and the Blue Jays organization in this position."

Pillar says he personally apologized to Motte -- but wants to reach out to the LBGTQ community and express his regrets for the "lack of respect" he displayed during the game.

"This is not who I am and will use this as an opportunity to better myself."

The MLB is investigating the incident to determine any possible punishment.

There's no MLB conspiracy against the Toronto Blue Jays -- and Jose Bautista's suggestion that the ALCS is rigged against his team is "silly" ... so says MLB on FOX's play-by-play guy Joe Buck.

Quick background ... Bautista said there are "circumstances" working against the Blue Jays -- and it doesn't take a brain surgeon to know he's saying the home plate umpires are favoring the Cleveland Indians. 

So, how does Buck feel about the situation? Let's just say he doesn't agree ... 

"Why would it would be rigged? Sounds more Trump-esque," Buck said.

"Silly. Totally silly."

There's more ... Buck also talks about Adrian Gonzalez's Trump Hotel protest and why he thinks the Dodgers, Cubs series will go all the way to Game 7.
