Twins' Kennys Vargas: Clears waivers, outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

After bouncing back and forth between the Reds, Vargas will indeed open the season back in Minnesota after passing through waivers untouched. He'll report to the Red Wings to open the season, where he should serve as organizational depth. While the 27-year-old possesses some serious pop, he's failed to get things going in brief major-league stints over the previous four seasons, hitting a combined .252/.311/.437 with 35 homers in 236 games.

Twins' Kennys Vargas: Claimed off waivers by Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas was claimed off waivers by the Twins on Saturday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Vargas's merry-go-round continues with the first baseman heading back to the Twins. The first baseman was designated for assignment by the team last weekend and then scooped up by the Reds on Thursday. It seems unlikely that he will be able to find much playing time with Joe Mauer and Logan Morrison ahead of him on the depth chart, but expect Vargas to secure a reserve role off the bench as a pinch hitter for the club's Opening Day roster.

Reds' Kennys Vargas: Heads to Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas was claimed off waivers by the Reds on Thursday.

Vargas' power potential is undeniable, but his struggles in the majors ultimately forced the Twins to cast him off the 40-man roster earlier in the month. He'll now head to Cincinnati, where he'll likely be relegated to being a bench bat given the presence of star first baseman Joey Votto.

Twins' Kennys Vargas: Sent off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas was designated for assignment or release Friday.

The signing of Logan Morrison already made Vargas a roster redundancy, so when the Twins needed a 40-man roster spot for Jake Cave, Vargas was a relatively easy choice. The switch-hitting slugger will now either be released or spend his time with Triple-A Rochester after batting .252 with 35 homers in the majors over the past four years.

Twins' Kennys Vargas: Tougher road to win roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas will have a tougher time making the Minnesota 25-man roster after the Twins signed Logan Morrison, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Vargas is 1-for-2 this spring and says he has improved vision after being fitted for a contact lense in his left eye. "I was seeing the ball really good," he said after getting a hit Saturday. "I've never seen it that clear."

Vargas looked likely to make the 25-man roster as a reserve and part-time DH before the Twins signed Morrison. After the singing, Vargas looks like a candidate to be traded or be sent to the minors. His limited ability to play in the field hurts his chances to win a spot on the bench.
