Recent Update

6/24:Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Jason Vargas continued his magical roll on Saturday by tossing another gem. Vargas held the Blue Jays to just two earned runs over seven innings en route to his 11th win of the season, securing the league lead all for himself. This also made his sixth straight win and third straight quality start. Vargas has seen his strikeouts evaporate over the six weeks, so while he's continued to be successful, the underlying sabermetrics don't support him keeping it up. Through May 6, Vargas had a strikeout rate of 8.36/9, but since then, it's just 5.56/9. When combined with his fortunate strand rate of 84.2% and depressed HR/FB rate of 5.3%, it leads to an xFIP of 4.69 for Vargas. Owners should be looking to move him while his value is inflated.--Billy Stonick - RotoBaller

  • @FlannyMLB: Teammate Jason Vargas jokes that Alcides Escobar is like a shark – all cartilage and no bones, therefore nothing can ever get broken.
