Player Notes
Jason Vargas was knocked around in Friday's loss to the Tigers, allowing five runs on nine hits over just 3 1/3 innings.

Advice: Vargas struck out one and didn't issue a walk in the abbreviated outing. The Tigers jumped on him early in this one, pushing three runs across in the first, one in the second and another in the fourth to eventually chase the veteran southpaw. He has been a valuable member of the Royals rotation, registering a 3.59 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 183 innings. He'll do battle against the Indians in Cleveland in his final regular season start on Wednesday.

Jason Vargas allowed five runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Sunday.

Advice: Two big swings, only one of which came while Vargas was still in the game, proved the difference. Xander Bogaerts hit a three-run homer off Vargas in the third inning, and after allowing two hits in the sixth Vargas exited ahead of a Daniel Nava grand slam. It was an unfortunate result on what was an otherwise good day for Vargas -- he struck out eight while giving up just four hits all day. Vargas will take on the Tigers on Saturday.
