Twins Kennys Vargas wants to be all-around player

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/15) Twins designated hitter Kennys Vargas is trying to work on his all-around game, according to Twincities.com.

Manager Paul Molitor recognizes the power that Vargas has at the plate, but wants him to work on his swing-path.

"We all know he can hit them extremely far," Molitor said, "but that's part of the swing-path things we're working on with him so he doesn't come around the ball too much. He didn't keep it fair that much, but he did."

Although Vargas is currently the team's designated hitter, Molitor wants to be sure he is ready to play first base behind Joe Mauer.

"I don't want him to get comfortable with that idea," Molitor said. "We all know that's probably a role that he would most likely fill than any other. We're trying to be creative with ways to keep him sharp defensively. I've been putting him out there as much as I can."

Molitor also recognizes that Vargas is improving as a fielder.

"He's obviously better," he said. "I've seen Kennys for a lot of years over on the other side. He's put the time in, but he's not overly mobile and he needs to build his stamina where he can play defense for 150-200 pitches a game."

Twins' Kennys Vargas already training at team's ST complex

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/4/15) Twins designated hitter Kennys Vargas is already training at the team's spring-training complex in Fort Myers, Fla., despite the fact that position players aren't required to report until Feb. 27, MLB.com reports.

"I'm prepared," Vargas said. "I'm going to Spring Training to compete. I'm going to compete to be the DH and the backup to [Joe] Mauer. So I'm excited for that. I have to take advantage of the opportunity the Twins give me and do my job."

Vargas has been committed to his conditioning this offseason while working to improve his agility in order to improve his defense at first base. He is aiming to follow up a quality debut in 2014 with a better campaign in 2015.

"I'm focused on this year," Vargas said. "I want to do the same work I did last year, but I always try to go for more. Every year, I learn a little bit more. I want to help us win more games than last year."

Vargas hit .274/.316/.456 with nine home runs and 38 RBI in 215 at-bats with the Twins in 2014 while finishing with a .281/.360/.472 line and 17 home runs in 356 at-bats at the Double-A level.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/20/14) Twins desginated hitter Kennys Vargas went 2 for 5 with a solo home run in his team's 5-4 win over the Indians Friday.

Vargas has homered twice in his last three games while delivering six hits in 14 at-bats. On the negative side, he added three strikeouts to his two hits Friday. Vargas owns a .295/.310/.495 with nine home runs and 37 RBI in 190 at-bats.

Kennys Vargas homers in second straight game Wednesday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/4/14) Twins designated hitter Kennys Vargas went 2 for 5 with a home run and three RBI in his team's 11-4 win over the White Sox Wednesday.

Vargas has been on a roll recently, homering in back-to-back games while going 9 for 26 over his current six-game hitting streak. He grabbed an RBI on a fifth-inning single before smacking a two-run home run one inning later. Vargas has hit .319/.340/.511 with six home runs and 31 RBI in 135 at-bats. Despite the high rate stats, he still owns an ugly 37:4 K:BB ratio.
