IP, 170/49 K/BB, 13 HR, 1.20 WHIP, 40.6% GB rate between A+ Visalia and AA Jackson2018 Season Summary: Vargas has always been an under the radar type prospect, putting up solid numbers across the way but never standing out, until 2018 where he broke out in a big way. The development of both his slider and change-up resulted a 31% strikeout rate in the Cal League and reducing his walk rate to 9%. That earned him a promotion to AA where he got shelled in his first three starts before settling in and turning in 3 amazing starts to close the season. Vargas did not pitch in the Fall League due to already exceeding his innings number from 2017 by 40, but did earn a spot on the 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft.Tools: Fastball 55/60 , Slider 50/55, Change-Up 40/50, Command 45/50Vargas has always had a solid fastball, but now his slider has turned into a solid swing and miss pitch for him now. The change-up is looking more and more like a reliable third pitch, although looking at his Visalia splits he had an easier time with LHH than RHH. Command isn’t quite there yet, but again I would also like to also stress that it has improved greatly. Walks are down, strikeouts are up, and batters in the Cal League had a tough time squaring him up. Upside: Vargas has the ceiling of a middle of the rotation starter, but has multiple successful career possibilities. If the command does not improve enough to be a successful starter, then he’s a prime candidate for a reliever conversion. If starting doesn’t pan out, then his pitches should play up in a reliever role as a 1-2 inning shutdown guy. The continued development of the change-up is the key difference between those two career outcomes. Risk: The biggest risk is that his command regresses to pre-2018 levels and causes a setback in his development at the AA level or cause him to be unsuccessful at the MLB level. The only thing I could see preventing Vargas from reaching the majors will be injuries. 2019 will be a big year for Vargas to prove that he is MLB starter material.Likely 2019 Assignment: Vargas will most likely start the year with AA Jackson, where he made 6 starts to conclude the 2018 season. The challenge there will be for Vargas to continue to improve his command and maintaining a high strikeout rate (> 25% K and < 9% BB will be the numbers I look for). A good 2019 season pretty much cements him as a future core player as well as earning a cup of coffee with the MLB team. ETA: 2019 Season MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Miguel Sano has begun a critical offseason in his so-far-frustrating career with the Minnesota Twins, who plan to keep close tabs on the slugging third baseman frequently waylaid by injuries.“The plan is to have very consistent touch points Marcell Ozuna Jersey ,” general manager Thad Levine said, “both by phone and quite frankly face to face.”Sano left Minnesota last week for his native Dominican Republic, where he was involved in an incident with police outside a nightclub that left an officer with a broken leg. The incident was deemed an accident and no criminal charges were brought. Last winter, Sano was accused of assaulting a woman but Major League Baseball did not punish him after an investigation yielded insufficient evidence.For now, though, the focus is on Sano’s physical condition. After losing the last six weeks of the 2017 season due to a lower left leg injury that required surgery, Sano missed time in May with a left hamstring injury. Then a hard slide in September resulted in soreness in his left knee, keeping him out of all but one more game the remainder of the season. In between, he was struggling so badly at the plate that he was sent to the minor leagues for about six weeks for a holistic reconditioning.In a wide-ranging conference call with reporters on Tuesday, Levine and chief baseball officer Derek Falvey expressed the customary optimism about Sano’s attitude toward trying to re-establish himself as an All-Star. He’ll be asked to make periodic appearances at the team’s minor league facility in Fort Myers, Florida, with the possibility of also playing some winter ball. Sano will meet Monday with strength and conditioning staff at the organization’s academy in the Dominican Republic.“We know he’s at an important crossroads in his career. He had a tough offseason last year,” Falvey said. “This is now an opportunity with what we expect a fully healthy offseason to take meaningful steps forward.”Once his knee is back to normal Miles Mikolas Jersey , Sano will be expected to work on his conditioning. During the last week of the season, he said his goal for 2019 was to report between 245 and 255 pounds. The 6-foot-4 Sano has weighed as much as 290 pounds, but the Twins don’t have a specific target in mind for him. They’re just aiming for him to be in shape to play a full season, after the 25-year-old batted .199 with 115 strikeouts in 299 plate appearances in 2018.“We may have been a little bit critical of him at the beginning of the season, relative to the shape,” Levine said. “We all know what transpired at the end of the season as a result of that, but I think he deserves some credit. He did shave off some weight.”On other subjects:— There’s no timetable for a decision by Paul Molitor, who was dismissed last week as manager , about whether he’ll take a job in baseball operations to stay with the organization. Falvey said the Twins remain optimistic he’ll accept.— With the process of interviewing candidates for Molitor’s replacement in full swing, Falvey said there’s no target timeline to make a hire despite the competition of five other teams simultaneously searching.— The Twins have given first baseman Joe Mauer space to spend time with his family as he mulls his future amid the likelihood he’ll retire. They don’t anticipate an answer until after the World Series, but if Mauer decides he’s interested in continuing his playing career, Falvey said, the Twins would be interested in retaining him.“Obviously there is a lot that goes into signing somebody ,” Falvey said. “We’ve always told him we’d welcome Joe back, certainly.”— Center fielder Byron Buxton, who was shut down for the season in September after struggling through more injuries and hitting troubles, was reported to be upset by not being called back up to the Twins from Triple-A. Falvey said recent conversations with Buxton about the future were positive.“I feel good about where he’s headed with us going forward,” Falvey said.— Ehire Adrianza, who served as the regular third baseman when Sano was hurt after filling in frequently at shortstop while Jorge Polanco served his 80-game suspension for a performance-enhancing substance, had surgery Tuesday on his non-throwing shoulder to repair a torn labrum that limited him down the stretch. Adrianza will need three to four months to recover, Levine said, which could affect his availability at the beginning of spring training.
