Mets' Jason Vargas: Looks sharp in return to rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (1-3) allowed no runs on two hits and one walk while striking out seven across five innings as he picked up his first win of the season against the Marlins.

The Mets elected to skip Vargas in the rotation the last time around, but he looked solid after failing to take the hill since May 11. After turning in three disastrous outings to begin the year, Vargas finally put it together for five scoreless innings. He'll aim to continue to improve his ERA (which sits at 9.87) in his next start, which will likely come Saturday against Milwaukee.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Reentering rotation Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas will rejoin the rotation Monday to start the Mets' series opener with the Marlins, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Vargas, who made his last start May 11, was temporarily dropped from the rotation after off days on the 14th and 17th resulted in the Mets not requiring a fifth starter until May 22 against the Marlins. While it was initially expected that Vargas would take the hill for that contest, the lefty will instead start one day earlier than anticipated with manager Mickey Callaway opting to build in an extra day of rest for Zack Wheeler. Vargas, who will now match up against rookie Elieser Hernandez, remains a shaky fantasy option after posting a 13.86 ERA and 2.68 WHIP over his first three outings of the season.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Will be skipped in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas will be skipped the next time through the rotation, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The Mets have off days on both Monday and Thursday, so they can afford to get by with just four starters for a while. Vargas was scheduled to start Tuesday against the Blue Jays, but he now won't be needed until May 22. He's struggled greatly in his first three starts for the Mets this season, recording a 13.86 ERA, striking out just 13.0 percent of batters while walking 10.1 percent. He did miss time earlier in the season, but that was with a broken glove hand, which seems unlikely to be a cause of his current struggles.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Allows four runs in loss to Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (0-3) allowed four runs oon six hits and three walks across four innings while taking the loss Tuesday against the Reds. He struck out one.

Vargas got off to a poor start in this one, loading the bases in the first inning before Eugenio Suarez laced a two-run double. He allowed two more runs on two hits and two walks in the third and was removed prior to the start of the fifth. The early returns have been ghastly for Vargas, who's allowed 19 runs over 12.1 innings this season -- all for a 16.20 ERA. He's still shaking off the rust after missing the start of the year, but he'll need to improve in his next scheduled start Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Knocked around by Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (0-2) was tagged with the loss after allowing six runs on 11 hits and two walks across 4.2 innings Thursday against the Braves.

Vargas' tenure with the Mets is off to a rough start, as the veteran left-hander has now allowed 15 runs on 20 hits -- including five homers -- through his first two starts (8.1 innings). His second outing was bookended by a pair of three-run innings; a Kurt Suzuki homer capped the Braves' big first inning while a pair of long balls from Ronald Acuna and Nick Markakis helped chase him in the fifth. He'll look to turn things around in his next start, which will come on the road against the Reds.
