Twins pitcher Ricky Nolasco turned in a fantastic start Tuesday against the Royals.

Nolasco allowed three hits over seven scoreless innings. He struck out six and issued one walk during the outing. Nolasco wasn’t in danger much during the start. He did have some issues in the second inning, hitting a batter and giving up a single, but managed to pitch around it. He allowed three hits and one walk over the next five innings. Nolasco also hit another batter during his final inning, but again managed to get out of the frame unscathed. 

The Royals managed a big comeback in the ninth, giving Nolasco the no-decision. He’ll take on the Orioles in his next start.

News
Kennys Vargas has his strengths for sure. The most obvious is ... his strength. He can hit the ball out of the park and has done so four times in his first 95 at-bats.

But that projects to, what, 24 homers in 600 at-bats? It certainly isn't why he's the No. 4 first baseman in Head-to-Head leagues since arriving Aug. 1. And that worries me.

It worries me because if it's supposed to be his strength, then other, less sustainable aspects of his game are carrying him, leaving him vulnerable to collapse.

I don't think it's at all a stretch to say he won't keep hitting .337. He has already struck out 27 times in those 95 at-bats, and with only four walks. Once opposing pitchers pick up on his tendencies, they'll take advantage of his aggressiveness. To put it another way, his .424 BABIP is ridiculous.

Vargas has also accumulated 23 RBI in only 23 games. The law of averages says that won't last even before you apply the correction in batting average. Cut those two measurements down to size, and Vargas is looking more like a Kendrys Morales-type player.

Which may seem unfair to those only familiar with the 2014 version of Kendrys Morales, but basically all I'm saying is Vargas is a serviceable corner infielder at this stage of his career, nothing more. You can ride him while he's hot, but ultimately he won't measure up to first basemen like Justin Morneau and Matt Adams.
