Royals' Jason Vargas: Tosses five scoreless to end lost season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas pitched five scoreless frames, allowing just four hits and one walk while striking out six Twins in Wednesday's no-decision.

Making his third start since debuting in mid-September, the 33-year-old veteran delivered his best effort. Vargas spent 14 months rehabbing from a torn UCL, limiting him to action in just the final weeks of the 2016 regular season. He did not factor in any of his outings while managing a 2.25 ERA and 11 strikeouts over 12 innings. With the playoffs out of sight in Kansas City, Vargas must now embark on another long wait before getting a chance to toe the rubber again.

Royals' Jason Vargas: Throws three innings in return from Tommy John
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas allowed one run on two hits and one walk with striking out one over three innings in a 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.

The three inning outing, Vargas's first since undergoing Tommy John surgery 14 months ago, is no surprise as manager Ned Yost indicated before the game that he would throw no more than three frames or 45 pitches. The 32-year-old lefty was a key component of the Royals rotation in 2014 and the first half of 2015, so there might be fantasy potential to extract here if Yost allows him to throw deeper into games.

Royals' Jason Vargas: Activated from DL for start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (elbow) was activated from the 60-day DL and will start Saturday against the White Sox, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio AM reports.

It will mark Vargas' first appearance with the Royals since July 2015, when he suffered a torn UCL that he's spent the last 14 months rehabbing. Vargas' surface results weren't overly encouraging during his six-start rehab assignment, as he produced a 5.85 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 20 innings across stops with three different affiliates, but his 27:1 K:BB ratio suggests he may have been victimized by some bad luck. The Royals are certainly hopeful the left-hander won't show much rust in his return to the big leagues, as the team remains on the periphery of the AL wild-card race and can ill afford many bad outings from their starters the rest of the way.

Royals' Jason Vargas: Scheduled to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (elbow) will start Saturday against the White Sox, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Vargas has been recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he'll pitch his first game of the season Saturday. However, the Royals will be cautious and limit him to about three innings or 45 pitches, then use Dillon Gee afterwards. While on his rehab assignment, Vargas posted a 5.93 ERA and 1.24 WHIP over three games at Triple-A Omaha.
