Mets' Jason Vargas: Throws six innings in rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (calf) covered six scoreless innings and struck out nine Monday in his rehab start for short-season Brooklyn. He allowed no hits and one walk in the 64-pitch outing.

Vargas was facing a lineup consisting mostly of hitters in their first professional season, so there's not much to takeaway from the stellar results. More important was the fact that Vargas seemingly escaped the rehab outing with no setbacks with his strained right calf and handled a healthy innings count, potentially putting him on track to make his next start in the majors. At least one of Vargas or Noah Syndergaard (lat), who made a rehab start Sunday for Brooklyn, seems likely to return to the New York rotation over the weekend, but there would be room for both if the Mets choose to move struggling No. 5 starter Corey Oswalt to the bullpen or option him to the minors.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Prepping for rehab start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (calf) will make a rehab start Monday at short-season Brooklyn, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Vargas has already built up his pitch count through a pair of simulated games, but the rehab assignment will represent the first chance to test out the health of his right calf in an uncontrolled setting. If Vargas demonstrates that he can defend his position adequately and cover bases as needed during the rehab start, he could be ready to return from the 10-day disabled list at some point next weekend. It's more likely, however, that the Mets take advantage of the All-Star break in order to afford Vargas more recovery time.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Another simulated game on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (calf) is scheduled to pitch in a simulated game Sunday, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Vargas and Noah Syndergaard (finger) both completed simulated games Tuesday, but only the latter was cleared to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment for his next outing. That's likely because Vargas' right calf injury still limits his mobility and presents complications in the field, something that could be more exposed in an uncontrolled setting. The simulated game will allow Vargas to build up his arm without putting any extra strain on the calf, but he'll still need to do baserunning and sprinting without pain before the Mets sign off on his return from the disabled list. If he fails to make much progress on that front in the next few days, a return prior to the All-Star break would become more unlikely.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Tosses simulated game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (calf) threw a four-inning, 65-pitch simulated game Tuesday, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

Vargas is expected to journey to the minor leagues for a rehab outing this weekend as long as he doesn't experience any lingering effects over the next few days. He also requires clearance to resume sprinting as there's some concern over whether he's able to field his position due to the calf strain. Look for an update on his status later this week.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Scheduled for sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (calf) will throw a simulated game Tuesday at the Mets' complex in Port St. Lucie, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

These plans suggest his bullpen session Wednesday was successful, and that Vargas could be nearing live game action. He's been on the disabled list since suffering a calf strain back on June 20, and according to Newsday, the biggest road block at this time is being able to run and field his position. It's unclear at this time if he'll be up to the task prior to the All-Star break.
