Mets' Jason Vargas: Falls apart late against Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas gave up four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four over four-plus innings in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins.

The veteran lefty was in firm control through four frames, but faded badly in the fifth. Vargas now sports a 3.65 ERA and 12:4 K:BB through 12.1 spring innings as he prepares to handle the Mets' fifth starter role this season.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Building momentum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas tossed four scoreless innings in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, scattering three hits and striking out three.

While he wasn't facing Houston's best lineup -- Michael Brantley, Yuli Gurriel and Josh Reddick were the biggest names in the starting nine for the home squad -- Vargas still put together a very impressive outing. The veteran southpaw now has a 1.08 ERA and sharp 8:2 K:BB through 8.1 spring frames as he looks to try and rebound from a rough 2018 and give the Mets solid innings at the back of the rotation.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Settles down in spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas gave up a run on a hit and a walk over two innings while striking out three in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

After Matt Carpenter took him deep for a leadoff homer, the veteran lefty found a groove against a St. Louis lineup that also included Paul Goldschmidt and Jose Martinez. Vargas is coming off a dreadful 2018 marred by a career-worst 1.76 HR/9, so his ability to keep the ball in the park is worth keeping an eye on this spring, but at the moment the Mets seem content to begin the season with him as their fifth starter and hope he can put up numbers closer to his 2017 performance with the Royals (4.16 ERA, 1.33 WHIP over 179.2 innings).

Mets' Jason Vargas: Locked into starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas will be the Mets' fifth starter, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

There was some thought earlier in the winter that Robert Gsellman or Seth Lugo could fight for a return to the rotation, but manager Mickey Callaway said Wednesday that there is no competition for the spot. Of course, there's no guarantee that Vargas holds the position all year, as the Mets would likely be happy to move on should he repeat the 5.77 ERA he recorded last season.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Fans six in scoreless outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (7-9) tossed seven scoreless innings and earned the win Thursday, allowing three hits while striking out six in the victory over Atlanta.

Despite an overall rough season, Vargas was pretty solid down the stretch. He allowed two or fewer earned runs in seven of his last eight starts dating back to Aug. 14, dropping his ERA from 8.75 to 5.77 during that span. This was likely the 35-year-old southpaw's final appearance of 2018, ending the year with an 84:30 K:BB across 92 innings.
