  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Hits first big-league homer

    Vargas went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Saturday against the Cardinals.

    He pulled a grooved 93-mph fastball from Jordan Montgomery out to left-center field for the first home run of his MLB career. Vargas has seen an uptick in playing time recently, as he has started in four of the last six games, although three of those starts came against left-handed pitchers. He is hitting .267 with two runs and three RBI over that stretch.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Starting in left field

    Vargas will bat eighth and play left field Saturday against San Diego, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    Vargas, who hit .304/.404/.511 with 17 home runs and 16 steals in 113 Triple-A games this season, is an exciting prospect, but his short-term appeal is lessened by the fact that he plays for a team with a very deep roster and one that employs Justin Turner at third base. The Dodgers have all but clinched the NL West already, however, so they have the freedom to experiment down the stretch, which could include things like trying Vargas in the outfield on a semi-regular basis.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Promotion official

    Los Angeles recalled Vargas from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.

    The Dodgers' top hitting prospect won't have a clear path to an everyday role as he rejoins the big club, but expect manager Dave Roberts to find room for Vargas in the lineup at least a couple times a week while veteran players like Justin Turner, Max Muncy and Chris Taylor receive occasional maintenance days over the final month of the season. Vargas logged eight plate appearances with the Dodgers earlier this summer, but he's otherwise spent the entire 2022 campaign at Oklahoma City, where he turned in a .915 OPS while chipping in 16 steals over 113 games.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Set to rejoin big club

    Vargas exited during the middle of Triple-A Oklahoma City's game Tuesday and will be added to the major-league roster Thursday by the Dodgers when rosters expand to 28 players, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    The 22-year-old appeared in two games in his first taste of big-league action in early August, and he'll rejoin the Dodgers on Thursday when two extra roster spots become available. Vargas, who is Los Angeles' top prospect, has a .301/.398/.503 slash line with 16 home runs, 81 RBI and 15 stolen bases in 111 games at Triple-A this year.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Sent to Triple-A

    Vargas was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Vargas appeared in two games since being recalled Aug. 2, collecting two hits (one double) and two RBI in eight at-bats while also swiping a bag. The Dodgers have yet to announce a corresponding move, but per Ardaya, the club may be preparing to activate Justin Turner (abdomen) from the 10-day injured list.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: On bench Saturday

    Vargas is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres.

    Considered by many to be the top prospect in the organization, Vargas was added to the 40-man roster earlier this week and collected two hits in his MLB debut, but he's been on the bench for two of three games since. Even with Justin Turner (abdomen) on the injured list, the Dodgers' infield is crowded.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Heads to bench Thursday

    Vargas isn't starting Thursday against the Giants, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    Vargas made his big-league debut Wednesday and went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base. James Outman will take over as the designated hitter and bat ninth Thursday.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Shines in MLB debut

    Vargas went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 3-0 win over San Francisco.

    Vargas was called up to the majors for the first time Tuesday and made his first start Wednesday. The 22-year-old wasted little time making his mark on the LA-SF rivalry, driving in the game's first run with a double in the second inning and immediately following with a steal of third base. Vargas notched another RBI with an infield single in the third. Justin Turner (abdomen) isn't expected to need a long-term stay on the IL, but Vargas could carve out playing time beyond the veteran third baseman's return if he gets off to a productive big-league start.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Gets call to big leagues

    The Dodgers selected Vargas' contract from Triple-A Oklahoma City ahead of Tuesday's game against the Giants.

    The Dodgers are fairly healthy -- or at least about to be -- in the infield, but that didn't stop them from calling up one of their top prospects. Though he won't be included in the lineup Tuesday, the Dodgers likely didn't call Vargas up to ride the pine, so expect him to at the very least settle into a short-side platoon role. Vargas brings a good mix of power and speed to the table, having recorded 15 home runs, 12 steals and an .897 OPS over 94 Triple-A games this season.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Headed to big leagues

    Vargas will be active for Tuesday's game against the Giants, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    Vargas will not immediately join the Dodgers' lineup, but it appears the team is ready to give one of its best prospects a shot to show what he can do at the top level.
