Vargas (biceps) was activated off the 7-day injured list Thursday and allowed four runs (three earned) on four hits over five innings for Double-A Jackson. He had three strikeouts and zero walks.
Vargas was sidelined since mid-May with biceps tendinitis, but he returned to action Thursday after three rehab outings with the AZL D-backs. The 22-year-old has a 5.49 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 38:5 K:BB over 39.1 innings with Jackson this season.
Vargas was placed on the minor-league injured list with biceps tendinitis, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
Vargas last took the mound for Double-A Jackson on May 9, but it's unclear when he sustained the injury as he was only placed on the IL within the last few days. The 22-year-old is expected to be out a couple weeks but should return sometime in June.
Vargas was optioned to Double-A Jackson on Tuesday.
Vargas returns to the level where he finished last season. In six starts for Jackson in 2018, he recorded a 4.04 ERA.
