Royals | Jason Vargas tosses simulated game

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 19:37:25 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas (elbow) threw a simulated game Saturday, July 9, and manager Ned Yost said he was encouraged by the pitcher's progress. "Looked good, really good," Yost said. "Three pitches, good changeup, fastball with life. Good breaking ball, good first step." Vargas might return in September.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas is returning from Tommy John surgery, and he is not likely to help fantasy owners outside of deeper AL-only formats later this summer.

Fantasy Tip: Minor missed all of 2015 with a shoulder injury. He'll be an option in AL-only leagues if he's healthy.

Royals | Jason Vargas needs Tommy John surgery

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 14:24:44 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas (elbow) requires Tommy John surgery and will not be able to rehab the torn left ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow, according to manager Ned Yost.

Fantasy Tip: It is safe to rule Jason Vargas out until late 2016, if not 2017. He isn't worth stashing in the majority of keeper/dyantasy leagues, either. Kris Medlen could have his move to the rotation sped up, or the Royals could also look outside the organization for a replacement. Keep an eye out for where the Royals turn.

Royals | Jason Vargas to DL

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 11:47:24 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, July 22, with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas' season is likely over as UCL tears usually mean Tommy John surgery. There's no confirmation on that yet, however. Yordano Ventura ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) was brought back up to take his rotation spot. Give him a start or two to get back on track.
