Player Notes
Kennys Vargas went 2-for-3 with a run scored against the White Sox on Friday.

Advice: Vargas singled to lead off the fifth inning and eventually came around to score when Jose Quintana uncorked a wild pitch. It ended up being the only run of the ballgame. Vargas has multi-hit games in two out of his last three, so perhaps he's starting to turn the corner. The 24-year-old is batting just .194 with 21 strikeouts in 72 plate appearances, so the clock might be ticking.

Even with the rest of the lineup combining for 13 hits and 12 runs, Kennys Vargas went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Thursday.

Advice: Something similar happened Saturday, with Vargas going 0-for-5 with four strikeouts in a game in which the Twins scored eight runs. Vargas is hitting just .172 with one homer and four RBI in 64 at-bats. He could soon be sent down to Triple-A, with Aaron Hicks or Josmil Pinto replacing him.

Fri, May 1 Rotoworld
While the rest of the Twins were combining for eight runs, Kennys Vargas went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts Saturday against the Mariners.

Advice: The Twins would certainly prefer that Vargas start hitting, but they could really improve their outfield defense by sending Vargas to Triple-A and installing Oswaldo Arcia as their DH. It's something they'll have to weigh if Vargas doesn't figure it out over the next week or two.
