Twins' Kennys Vargas: Launches two-run bomb in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas went 2-for-2 with a double, a two-run home run and two walks during Sunday's loss to Kansas City.

Vargas has been playing sparingly, and while Sunday's blast could earn him a few more at-bats moving forward, he's not in the lineup enough to move the needle in most fantasy settings. His .249/.311/.438 slash line shouldn't instill much confidence, either.

Twins' Kennys Vargas: Takes seat again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals, Shane Jackson of MLB.com reports.

Vargas will be on the bench for the second straight contest, with Twins manager Paul Molitor opting to keep much of his lineup intact from Saturday after Minnesota rolled to a 17-0 victory. It still appears that Vargas will handle most of the DH duties until either Miguel Sano (shin) or Robbie Grossman (thumb) returns from the DL, as the 27-year-old has contributed a respectable .350 on-base percentage since rejoining the big club Aug. 21.

Twins' Kennys Vargas: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas is out of Saturday's lineup against the Royals, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

He has been the primary DH since getting recalled, hitting .235/.333/.353 with one home run and 10 strikeouts in 34 at-bats over that span. Mitch Garver gets the start at DH, hitting sixth, against lefty Onelki Garcia.

Twins' Kennys Vargas: Draws third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas will serve as the Twins' designated hitter and bat seventh Tuesday against the White Sox.

Injuries to Robbie Grossman (thumb) and Miguel Sano (shin) have left Vargas the top option on the depth chart at DH. Vargas will draw his third consecutive start Tuesday after going 3-for-9 with two RBI over the past two contests.

Twins' Kennys Vargas: Goes yard Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the White Sox.

As has been his habit this season, Vargas flashed his power quickly after his latest promotion from Triple-A Rochester. While his nine homers and 31 RBI in 54 big-league games are solid, his .245 batting average and .736 OPS point to why he hasn't been able to hang onto a regular spot in the Twins' lineup. With Miguel Sano (shin) out for another week or so, however, expect Vargas to see plenty of at-bats through the rest of August as the team looks to replace their young slugger's thump.
