Kennys Vargas has been brilliant since being called up from AAA.
The Minnesota Twins needed more consistency offensively, so they looked to their farm system to solve that issue. Luckily for them, it’s worked out perfectly. They called up Kennys Vargas and he has been extremely good so far this season.
Kennys Vargas’ slash line is .255/.278/.529 with 4 home-runs in and 13 RBI’s.
Kennys Vargas has 4 home-runs, 2 doubles and 13 RBI’s in only 51 at-bats.
It’s easy to say that Vargas has been special, considering there weren’t high expectations for the player that started the season in Rochester. But seriously, Vargas has been great. He has helped the Twins by giving them another powerful option at the plate, something they needed so badly.
Expect Kennys Vargas’ role to only grow as the season goes on. Right now, he spends a lot of time in the DH spot and pinch hitting. DH may be the best place for a powerful bat who hasn’t proven his fielding abilities yet.
