Player Profile #170: Kennys Vargas | 1B | MIN

On August 1 of last year, Kennys Vargas made his major league debut. He went 1-for-5 with a double, a run scored, and 2 RBI. He then went on to collect seven hits with that double, a homer, five runs and seven RBI. Overall, Vargas made a splash immediately, slashing .309/.336/.463 with 4 HR, 17 R, and 24 RBI in August, and I don’t think anyone had ever heard of him. The only reason...

Kennys Vargas a worthy late season fantasy addition (Week 20 transaction trends)

Creeper of the Week -This Vargas Ain’t No Circus

As I scrolled through the under-owned players yesterday, I kept trying to find a guy that was a one week rental, but all I saw was Yugo's on the lot. Then I saw something I had overlooked because I own him and he wasn't in the free agent pool. Kennys Vargas has been swinging a solid stick since his call up, and I like what he brings to the table over the next 7 days and beyond. For...

Ortiz-clone Vargas getting valuable experience

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Kennys Vargas has heard the comparisons before, and he's flattered. "I hear a lot, 'You like Big Papi,'" said Vargas, a first baseman in the Twins organization.
