Good energy guy; always smiling; works during infield drills but also likes to flash around the leather; teammates love him.
30 - Organizational Player
Average bat speed; moderate leverage; mild barrel control; moderate load; minimal leg kick; unbalanced against breaking stuff, dives over the plate on soft away; poor pitch recognition; does not pick up LHP.
Below average raw power; minimal game power; won't be a factor with XBH.
Consistently in the 4.4 range to first; 4.2 on a few jailbreak bunts; awkward runner; poor foot speed; won't be a factor on the base paths.
Below average range; plus actions; average hands; extremely coordinated in the field; above average reads; glove plays up at second base.
Average arm strength; above average accuracy; average release; ball lacks carry; throws out runners by just enough.
Signed by Arizona on May 26, 2015 to a minor league contract.
Vargas has some defensive skill but not enough to carry his poor bat to the Majors. He is a great player to have in your org because of his positional flexibility and positive attitude on the field.
