Player Notes
Jason Vargas will start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Angels on Thursday.

Advice: Vargas, who pitched for the Angels in 2013, had a 3.71 ERA across 30 starts this season with Kansas City. Danny Duffy was the likely alternative for the Game 1 assignment. The rest of the rotation for the series has yet to be announced.

Jason Vargas gave up four runs in four innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Indians.

Advice: It was Vargas's fourth straight poor outing, the first three of which resulted in losses. As of Sept. 3, he was 11-7 with a 3.14 ERA. Now he's finishing the regular season 11-10 with a 3.71 ERA. The Royals are going to have a tough call if they advance to the ALDS; after ace James Shields, Danny Duffy and Yordano Ventura clearly look like the Royals' best starters right now. If the Royals start both youngsters, it'd leave just one spot for Vargas or Jeremy Guthrie. But that's almost surely how they need to play it.
