  • 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: Logs time in left field at Triple-A

    Vargas started in left field for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday, broadcaster Alex Freedman reports. He went 1-for-3 with a walk in the loss to Round Rock. Vargas was back at third base for Thursday's contest, but his stint in left field Wednesday was notable in that it was his first start at the position in his professional career. It may not be a coincidence that the 22-year-old's first foray in the outfield came four days after Mookie Betts was place on the 10-day injured list with a fractured right rib, though Los Angeles has since traded for Trayce Thompson to add outfield depth. Regardless, adding a new position to his skill set can only help Vargas in his quest for his first call-up, and he looked good in left field Wednesday, notching three putouts -- including a nice running catch on a deep drive with two runners on base and two outs in the seventh inning -- and making no miscues. It wouldn't be surprising to see Vargas called up to the majors at some point this season, as he's stood out in 67 games with Oklahoma City, slashing .282/.379/.485 with 11 home runs, 50 RBI, 57 runs and eight stolen bases on nine attempts.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Heating up at plate

    Vargas is slashing .367/.486/.600 with a home run, two doubles, a triple, 12 runs, seven RBI and 7:4 BB:K through eight games with Triple-A Oklahoma City in May. Vargas batted a modest .259 in April but has picked things up significantly this month to lift his average to .287 on the season. The 22-year-old turned heads with .319/.380/.526 slash line, 23 homers and 11 stolen bases between two minor-league levels in 2021 and hit .308 with a .500 on-base-percentage in nine Cactus League games with the Dodgers this spring. He has impressed at every level of the minors and has even improved his already steady plate discipline this season, walking almost as many times (21) as he has struck out (22). He figures to be a big part of the Dodgers' future plans and could get his first call-up at some point during the current campaign.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Looking MLB-ready

    Vargas has hit gone 4-for-11 with a double, a homer and a 4:2 BB:K across eight spring games, giving him a .364/.563/.727 batting line. Obviously, all small-sample-size caveats apply, but Vargas has showed off both his incredible bat control and his impressive power -- and that spring homer came off Cy Young winner Shane Bieber. Nearly as importantly, the word has been that his fielding at third, previously a weakness, has improved significantly. He's blocked there by Justin Turner for now, but Turner has been injury-prone and the Dodgers will only be able to keep Vargas down for so long if he keeps hitting this way in Triple-A, where he'll probably open the season.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Could help club in 2022

    Manager Dave Roberts stated Monday it's "certainly a possibility" that Vargas will contribute at the major-league level at some point this season, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. Vargas has yet to play above Double-A, but he's impressed the Dodgers' skipper in spring training thus far, with Roberts also noting his improvements defensively. The infielder slashed .317/.384/.518 with 16 home runs, 59 RBI and seven stolen bases a season ago at Double-A Tulsa and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him begin the 2022 campaign at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Showing advanced skills in Double-A

    Vargas is hitting .308/.384/.504 across 60 games for Double-A Tulsa, bringing his composite minor-league line for the year to .310/.377/.515 with 19 homers and eight steals in 97 games. Most remarkable has been the growth of Vargas' plate discipline since being promoted from High-A, where he put up a 9:32 BB:K in 37 contests. In Double-A, he's now sporting a remarkable 29:41 mark; that's just a 15.3 percent strikeout rate. Vargas didn't enter the season with a lot of helium, but following the Dodgers' blockbuster deadline trade, he's arguably the team's top prospect all of a sudden. At the major-league level, the 21-year-old is blocked at third base by Justin Turner (who's under contract for one more year), but he's not an especially good defender there anyway. Vargas has played a little at first and second base this year, and it wouldn't be surprising if the team moves him to one of those positions on a more permanent basis. With his defensive development seemingly lagging behind his bat, Vargas may well spend a good chunk of next year in the minors working on his fielding.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Invited to join big-league camp

    Vargas was invited to the Dodgers' major-league spring training Tuesday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. Vargas looked good at the Low-A and High-A levels in 2019, hitting .308/.380/.440 while stealing 13 bases, but the canceled minor-league schedules last year prevented him from continuing up the ladder. He'll need to prove himself in the upper minors before pushing for a roster spot.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Expected to begin season at High-A

    Vargas could ascend to Double-A by the start of the 2020 minor-league season but is more likely to begin with High-A Rancho Cucamonga, Howard Cole of Sports Illustrated reports. Vargas has demonstrated excellent hitting acumen in his first two minor-league seasons, slashing .314/.387/.447 with a 78:119 BB:K over 788 plate appearances. However, his power has thus far been limited to doubles, as he has 53 two-baggers versus only nine home runs as a professional. Defensively, Vargas may be better suited to play first base considering his limited range and average arm, per Baseball America.
