Royals | Jason Vargas toughs it out in win

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 21:33:47 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas (groin) was hit near the groin by a line drive Monday, June 8, against the Minnesota Twins. He was hit in the midsection in the fifth inning, but remained in the game to record four more outs.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas allowed just five hits with no walks over six innings in the win, needing just 70 pitches. It was one of his finest outings of the season. At just $3,700 (or 7.4% of cap) he would be a steal in FantasyScore if he continues to pitch this well.

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 21:00:40 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas pitched six innings Wednesday, June 3, against the Cleveland Indians. He gave up eight hits and two runs but did not walk anyone and struck out three batters.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is merely a matchup play and a source of cap relief on FantasyScore. Consider the left-hander when the matchup doesn't pose much risk.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has pitched poorly this season with a 5.26 ERA, a 1.48 WHIP and a 4.9 K/9. Until he returns and strings together a few nice starts, he cannot be trusted in any fantasy format, but especially FantasyScore contests. Continue to check back for updates.

Fri, 08 May 2015 15:28:13 -0700
