Kennys Vargas Should be on Your Fantasy Radar!
Kennys Vargas should be on your radar!
A player to keep an eye on throughout this year is 6’ 5’’, 26-year old switch hitter Kennys Vargas from the Minnesota Twins. The 26-year old is smashing .308 with one homerun in four starts since being called up from Triple-A. In 2016, Vargas hit .230 in 47 games, and cranked out an impressive 10 homeruns. The biggest problem last season for the first baseman was his strikeouts at the plate. He struck out 57 times in 177 plate appearances. During the offseason, Vargas worked a lot on his patience at the plate, and so far he only has 3 strikeouts through 13 at bats. Through 4 games, Vargas seems to be making the most of his opportunities this year with 5 hits in 13 at bats. Keep an eye out for this guy in your DFS, or season long fantasy leagues. If he catches some fire, he can become the next Eric Thames.
Would I Start Him In DFS?
Yes. I started Vargas against the Rangers on April 25th. He delivered a homerun, which led to a win for me on Fanduel. Vargas has a lot of boom or bust potential, but is a great punt play since he bats around fifth or sixth in the order for the Twins. Keep him on your radar. If he starts to get hot, start him in your lines. If his salary is right, his power can score you a ton of DFS points.
