|Jason Vargas off to a solid start this spring |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/6/14) Royals starter Jason Vargas continued his solid start to the spring on Thursday against the White Sox in Cactus League action.
Vargas pitched three scoreless innings, allowing just five hits and no walks while striking out one in a 6-6 tie. He has not allowed a run over his first five innings pitched through two starts.
|Jason Vargas efficient in early work |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/1/14) Royals starting pitcher Jason Vargas made his team debut Saturday, in a shortened 7-3 win over the Padres.
Vargas worked through two innings quickly, needing just 19 pitches, 13 for strikes. He allowed one hit and faced just one batter over the minimum in his two innings, while striking out one batter.
Vargas signed a four-year $32 million contract this offseason, and is expected to provide a steady presence in the rotation. He posted a 4.02 ERA in 150 innings last season.
|Royals land Jason Vargas |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(11/21/13) Yahoo! Sports reports that the Royals have agreed to terms with free agent starting pitcher Jason Vargas. The deal is for four years, $32 million, according to FOXSports.com. It's contingent on him passing a physical.
Vargas went 9-8 with a 4.02 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 24 starts for the Angels last year, missing about two months midseason because of surgery to remove a blood clot from his armpit. His best year was 2012 with the Mariners, when he went 14-11 with a 3.85 ERA and 1.18 WHIP.
|Twins interested in Bronson Arroyo, Phil Hughes, Jason Vargas |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(11/6/13) The Twins have expressed preliminary interest in free agent pitchers Bronson Arroyo, Phil Hughes and Jason Vargas, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Arroyo went 14-12 with a 3.79 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 124:34 K:BB ratio in 202 innings for the Reds. Hughes went 4-14 with a 5.29 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 121:42 K:BB ratio in 145 2/3 innings for the Yankees. Vargas went 9-8 with a 4.02 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 109:46 K:BB ratio in 150 innings for the Angels.
|Angels interested in bringing back Jason Vargas |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(11/5/13) The Angels are interested in bringing back pither Jason Vargas, according to MLB.com.
The team has shown interest in retaining Vargas, but doesn't have the money to overpay. General manager Jerry Dipoto confirmed the move, saying "we obviously have interest in having Jason back." The Angels are hesitant to offer Vargas a third year, so that could be the difference.
Vargas had a 4.02 ERA in 150 innings.
|Relying heavily on the spacious dimensions of Safeco Field, where he compiled a 2.74 ERA compared to 4.78 on the road, the 2012 version of Jason Vargas had one of the more unlikely top-25 finishes at starting pitcher in recent memory. So did the 2013 version fare as well in a similarly spacious but intrinsically different Angels Stadium? Not quite. He had his moments, none bigger than returning to make 10 starts after having surgery to remove a blood clot from his left armpit in June, but ultimately, the high points weren't high enough to carry him. He still enjoyed pitching in a pitcher's park, which is to be expected for a pitch-to-contact, flyball type, but only to the tune of a 3.30 ERA, which is much more in line with the rest of his career. Now with the Royals, another team that plays half its games in a pitcher's park, Vargas will have stretches where he's eating innings and piling up wins, making him worth using at least for the home starts, but sort of like Mark Buehrle, his lack of strikeout potential and general inconsistency makes him a better choice to stream off the waiver wire than to target on Draft Day.
