Twins' Kennys Vargas: Hits tenth home run
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Vargas went 2-for-5 with his tenth home run of the season in Thursday's win over Kansas City.

Vargas has quietly had a productive season when he's been able to find playing time with a .897 OPS in 44 games. It's been hard for him to find consistent playing time with a logjam of players at first base and DH for the Twins. That's hopefully a situation that will be resolved when a new Twins GM is hired in the offseason, which could finally give Vargas a path to steady at-bats in the majors.

Twins' Kennys Vargas: Officially recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Vargas was officially recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday.

With the Triple-A season now over, Vargas will rejoin the Twins, for whom he's appeared in 25 games this season, hitting .259 with six home runs and 13 RBI. The 26-year-old could see time at first base over the final month of the season and he'll also be an option in the DH spot.

Twins' Kennys Vargas: Will be called up Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Phil Miller of the Star Tribune reports.

Over 25 games with the Twins this season, Vargas is hitting .259/.379/.576 with six home runs and 13 RBI. However, he's struggled recently with Rochester. In his last 10 games, he's gone 7-for-33 with 10 strikeouts, bringing his batting average down to .233 for the year. Once he joins the big club, Vargas will add depth at first base, but can also be an option in the DH spot.

Twins' Kennys Vargas: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas was officially optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Saturday, the Star Tribune's LaVelle Neal reports.

Despite hitting three homers in his last 33 plate appearances, Vargas was hitting just .148 over that span and had been left out of the lineup more often than not. He makes way for pitching prospect Adalberto Mejia, but Vargas could be back with the team when rosters expand in September.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Vargas is expected to be optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Saturday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

While the team hasn't yet made an official announcement, Vargas' name is not included on Saturday's lineup card and Triple-A left-hander Adalberto Mejia has joined the team in Kansas City. Vargas has appeared in 25 games for the Twins on the season, putting up a .259/.379/.576 slash line across 85 at-bats.
