Mets' Jason Vargas: Hit hard, chased by rain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas gave up three runs on three hits while recording one out in Tuesday's start against the Reds, which included a lengthy rain delay that forced Vargas from the game.

There was almost a two-hour weather delay in the first inning (just nine minutes after first pitch), which, coupled with Vargas' awful early performance, led to him logging his shortest outing in 240 career big-league starts. He will be well rested for his presumed next start Monday against the Yankees.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Takes loss against Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (2-7) pitched five innings and took the loss Thursday, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks in the 4-2 loss to Atlanta. He struck out seven batters.

Vargas was tagged for a run in the first inning from an Ozzie Albies single before allowing three more runs in the third. He lowered his season ERA slightly, now down to a still-ugly 8.23. Vargas hasn't picked up a win since May 30, dropping his last four decisions. He'll have a better matchup against the Reds on Tuesday, but Vargas should still be avoided for fantasy purposes.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Delivers short outing in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas allowed two runs on three hits and three walks while fanning three across 4.1 innings Friday as he didn't factor into the decision against Pittsburgh.

Vargas made one key mistake in the second inning, as he surrendered a two-run blast to David Freese, although he left the game with a 3-2 lead. Vargas was pulled from the ballgame with 84 pitches, seeing as he hadn't pitched in the big leagues since June 19 due to a lingering calf injury. He'll look to improve upon a disastrous 8.14 ERA and 1.79 WHIP with a 35:17 K:BB over 42 innings moving forward.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Confirmed for Friday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (calf) has been confirmed as the starting pitcher for Friday's game against the Pirates.

Vargas missed more than a month with his calf injury, but he is ready to get back up on the bump for the big club Friday night. He will be tested in his first start back, facing off against a Pirates club that owns a .940 team OPS since the All-Star break.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Set to return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (calf) will return to action Friday against the Pirates, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Vargas was originally expected to start during the mid-week series against the Padres, but Corey Oswalt was called up to start Wednesday. The veteran's long-term status as a rotation member could be in jeopardy once Noah Syndergaard returns from his illness, but he'll at least get the opportunity to make one more start.
