Minnesota Twins OF Robbie Grossman, SS Eduardo Escobar and C Kurt Suzuki are not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Sunday, July 24. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at shortstop, while 1B Kennys Vargas will serve as the designated hitter and is batting sixth. OF Eddie Rosario will start in left field and is batting seven, while C Juan Centeno will start at catcher and is batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Vargas is hitting .211 with one RBI over the last seven days and probably will not be the best starting candidate for most owners. Rosario should be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues because he is hitting .396 with two home runs and seven RBI in July. Centeno is hitting .245 this season and would only have value in two-catcher leagues.

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer is out of the lineup Saturday, July 23, with 1B Kennys Vargas hitting sixth.
Fantasy Tip: Vargas has a decent .308-3-4 line in 39 at-bats. He's a low-end option against David Price.

Minnesota Twins 1B Kennys Vargas is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. SS Eduardo Escobar draws into the lineup at shortstop and is batting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Vargas is 12-for-39 with a .718 slugging percentage over 12 games since being recalled. If you're chasing power, he's a worthy add in all settings. Escobar is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests and depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only seasonal leagues.

Minnesota Twins 1B Kennys Vargas is not in the starting lineup against the Detroit Tigers Monday, July 18.
Fantasy Tip: Vargas is 11-for-29 since being recalled and has nine runs, three home runs and four RBI with a 1.382 OPS during the nine-game stretch. He's worth owning in all cavernous mixed and AL-only settings because of his power upside, and it isn't out of the question to add Vargas in shallower leagues if you're chasing home runs.

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer, 3B Miguel Sano and CB Byron Buxton are not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin Sunday, July 17. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base, while OF Robbie Grossman will serve as the designated hitter. 1B Kennys Vargas will start at first base and is batting third. OF Eddie Rosario will start in left field and is batting sixth, while OF Danny Santana will start in center field and is batting ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Vargas is hitting .400 with three home runs and four RBI since being recalled from the minor leagues and should be a decent option in daily fantasy leagues. Rosario has 12 hits in his last five games and should be used in starting lineups. Santana has at least one hit in five of his last seven games, but owners probably will be able to find better options.

Minnesota Twins 1B Kennys Vargas has three home runs in his last six games, including one hit Sunday, July 10, against the Texas Rangers.
Fantasy Tip: Vargas was clearly overmatched last season and deserved to go back to the minors for more seasoning. Has he turned the corner? Either way, since he really doesn't have a regular place to play yet Vargas might best be used in daily formats, especially with that bat hot right now.
