Royals' Jason Vargas: Continues hot streak with win over Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (10-3) allowed three runs on eight hits and two walks with three strikeouts pver six innings in a win Sunday over the Angels.

Vargas has now won five straight games and has allowed three runs or less in all five. His control has been impeccable -- Vargas has walked just seven batters in 32.2 innings over this current hot streak, which has been the main driver behind his 2.14 ERA over those five starts. In a shocker to pundits across the nation, with Sunday's win, Vargas becomes the league's first pitcher to 10 wins.

Royals' Jason Vargas: Dazzles again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (9-3) allowed one run on five hits and a walk over seven innings during Tuesday's 8-1 win over the Giants. He struck out six.

Vargas's resurgent season hummed along Tuesday as the 34-year-old was in control of Giants hitters from the first inning onward as he led the Royals to their third consecutive victory. His rock solid performance dropped his season ERA to a dazzling 2.10 on the year. The left-handed hurler has positioned himself as one of the most intriguing potential trade chips as we head towards the July 31 trade deadline. Vargas will look to stay hot during his date with the Angels on Sunday.

Royals' Jason Vargas: Slows down Astros on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (8-3) allowed two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out five batters during Wednesday's win over Houston.

Vargas is proving his early-season dominance has long legs with four consecutive strong outings against the who's who of the American League. He's faced the Yankees, Indians (twice) and Astros during the four-game stretch and allowed just seven runs over 25.2 innings for a 2.45 ERA and 1.29 WHIP. He's never going to pile up many strikeouts, but his 7.1 K/9 is serviceable. Vargas projects to face the Giants at AT&T Park in his next start.

Royals' Jason Vargas: Tosses shutout Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (7-3) blanked Cleveland over nine innings in Friday's 4-0 win, allowing seven hits and a walk while striking out three.

After giving up 11 runs over 15.2 innings in his last three starts, Vargas returned to his surprising early-season form and recorded his first shutout since 2014 and the seventh of his career. The veteran lefty just missed twirling a Maddux, needing 103 pitches (69 strikes) to complete the gem, and and the outing lowering his ERA back to 2.08 on the season. Vargas will next take the mound Wednesday at home against the Astros.

Royals' Jason Vargas: Stays strong through May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas won three of six starts while managing a 3.12 ERA over 34.2 innings in May.

As expected, the veteran's numbers dipped from his amazing performance in the season's opening month (1.40 ERA over 25.2 innings). Vargas' May strikeout and walk rates of 15.8 and 8.9 percent, respectively, were way off the 28.9 and 2.1 percent marks he posted in April. That said, the southpaw's overall ERA (2.39), WHIP (1.13) and FIP (3.38) are among some of the best in MLB. Vargas is walking a fine line, though, as his 83.9 percent strand rate ranks in the AL's top-five, and that leaves him with little room for error.
