Royals move Jeremy Guthrie back in rotation; Jason Vargas, James Shields up
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/16/14) The Royals have shuffled their rotation for an upcoming series against the Tigers, as The Kansas City Star reports Jeremy Guthrie has been moved back from Friday to Sunday. That means Jason Vargas will pitch Friday to open the series, followed by James Shields Saturday. 
Jason Vargas can't make lead hold up
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/14/14) Though Jason Vargas had his struggles on Sunday against the Red Sox, he pitched well enough to hand a one-run lead over to the Royals' bullpen in the sixth inning. He did leave two baserunners on for reliever Aaron Crow to strand, but instead, Crow loaded the bases and then coughed up a decisive grand slam to Daniel Nava. That left Vargas as the losing pitcher in the Royals' 8-4 defeat.

Vargas was charged with five earned runs on four hits (including a three-run homer by Xander Bogaerts) and a walk over 5 1/3 innings. He tied a season high with eight strikeouts.

Heading into his next start with an 11-9 record and 3.41 ERA, Vargas will now face the Tigers on Saturday.

Jason Vargas surrenders four runs in loss vs. Tigers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/9/14) Royals pitcher Jason Vargas took a loss Tuesday, giving up four earned runs on six hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 4-2 defeat against the Tigers.

Vargas (11-8) allowed a run on a sacrifice fly in the first inning, and the Tigers were able to tack on two runs on a second-inning blast and another run on a solo home run in the fifth. Vargas had allowed just one home run in his last nine starts before the Tigers smacked two Tuesday. He owns a 3.25 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 118:37 K:BB ratio in 174 1/3 innings. Vargas is slated to face the Red Sox Sunday.

Jason Vargas picks up the win Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/3/14) Royals pitcher Jason Vargas turned in a strong start Wednesday against the Rangers.

Vargas allowed six runs over 6 2/3 scoreless innings. He struck out five and did not issue any walks during the outing. Vargas did a good job limiting the damage during the start. Two base runners reached during the second inning, but Vargas managed to pitch around the trouble. Vargas was solid after that, not allowed more than two base runners until his final inning. After getting two outs in the seventh, Vargas gave up two consecutive singles. He was pulled at that point. 

With the win, Vargas improved to 11-7. He’ll take on the Tigers in his next start.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
