Player Notes
Kennys Vargas drove in five runs as the Twins routed the Tigers for the second game in a row in Saturday's win, the first game of a double-header.

Advice: The Twins were coming off of a 20-6 drubbing of the Tigers on Friday and kept it going on Saturday. Vargas knocked in a run with a double in the second inning, another run with a sacrifice fly in the third, then cleared the bases with a three-run double in the seventh. He finished 2-for-4 on the afternoon. The 24-year-old rookie continues to perform well, slashing .329/.366/.553 with four home runs and 22 RBI in his first 93 plate appearances as a major leaguer.

Kennys Vargas went 3-for-4 with an opposite field homer off the Indians' Corey Kluber in the Twins' win Thursday.

Advice: Despite his willingness to chase pitches off the plate, Vargas is hitting .319 in 19 games since being called up. There's no doubting his power -- he didn't even get all of the ball he hit out today -- but it'll be interesting to see how long he continues to hit for average. He should remain an everyday guy for the Twins through the end of the season.

Sat, Aug 23 Rotoworld
Kennys Vargas had an RBI single, a double, and a two-run home run in four at-bats, but the Twins were out-slugged by the Royals in a loss on Sunday.

Advice: The 24-year-old rookie has performed well since making his big league debut at the start of the month. In 66 plate appearances, he has a .317/.364/.500 slash line with three home runs and 15 RBI.
