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

Vargas (hand) was confirmed for his Mets debut Saturday in San Diego, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

As expected, Vargas will start Saturday against the Padres after missing a month with a broken glove hand. He'll fill in as the Mets' fifth starter after the struggling Matt Harvey was sent to the bullpen. Vargas had a surprising 18 wins but just a 4.16 ERA (with a 4.94 xFIP) in 32 starts for the Royals last season.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Lines up for Saturday debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas is expected to be activated from the 10-day disabled list Saturday to start the Mets' game in San Diego against the Padres, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Team doctors gave Vargas the green light to make a rehab start Monday at Triple-A Las Vegas, which represented the final hurdle the lefty needed to clear before returning from the DL. Though Vargas wasn't especially impressive Monday -- he needed 66 pitches (42 strikes) to get through four innings and gave up three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out four -- pitching in Las Vegas is rarely a picnic for even the most seasoned of hurlers. More importantly, Vargas escaped the outing with no reported issues with his surgically repaired non-throwing hand, so he'll presumably be in line to fill the spot in the Mets rotation vacated by Matt Harvey, who was banished to the bullpen over the weekend following three rough starts in a row.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Expected to debut next weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mets manager Mickey Callaway suggested that Vargas (hand) would likely be activated from the 10-day disabled list to start either Saturday or Sunday against the Padres in San Diego, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Vargas' starting assignment with the big club is contingent on him coming out of a rehab outing Monday at Triple-A Las Vegas with no renewed soreness in his surgically repaired right hand. The southpaw is scheduled to throw around 75 pitches Monday, which would put him in line to enter the upcoming weekend without any restrictions. The Mets have already cleared a spot in the rotation by demoting Matt Harvey to the bullpen, so it seems more likely that Vargas would take the hill Saturday rather than Sunday. If the Mets waited until Sunday to use Vargas, the big club would have to add a sixth starter to the mix temporarily.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Seeing doctor before rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (hand) will see a doctor Saturay to get medical clearance before his rehab start with Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday, Kristie Ackert of The New York Daily News reports.

Assuming he gets a clean bill of health, that lines the left-hander up for a 2018 season debut in San Diego the following Saturday. The Mets haven't yet decided whether to use a six-man rotation once Vargas comes off the disabled list, send Zack Wheeler down to Triple-A to make room for him, or bump the struggling Matt Harvey from the rotation until he gets straightened out, but Monday's off day would allow them to keep everyone else on schedule no matter what route they take.

Mets' Jason Vargas: Could join six-man rotation upon return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets could employ a six-man rotation when Vargas (hand) returns from the disabled list, Tim Britton of The Athletic New York reports.

The Mets have five starters currently performing decently well without Vargas in the mix, and given their past injury woes, it would make sense to utilize a six-man rotation. It ultimately would limit the number of two-start weeks possible for Vargas and the other starters, but it could keep the veteran healthier throughout the season. No official word on this topic has been announced, but things should become clearer as Vargas' return nears.
