Recent Update

7/28:Kansas City Royals All-Star starting pitcher Jason Vargas has watched his magical season come back down to Earth recently. After finding himself as 12-3 with a 2.22 ERA following a strong start against Minnesota on June 30, Vargas was one of the leading candidates for the American League Cy Young Award. However, July has not been kind to Vargas. Through three starts in July, Vargas has carried a 9.95 ERA and 2.21 WHIP that has brought his season ERA up to 3.08 and his season WHIP up to 1.24. He's still only had one loss hung on him in those three starts, but his xFIP remains at 4.90 and indicates the road will likely get worse. That said, when he takes the mound in Boston on Thursday, the Royals will be trying to extend an 8-game winning streak in which they're averaging nearly eight runs per game. Even with that good news, he is not a recommended start against the Red Sox.--Billy Stonick - RotoBaller
