Miguel Vargas - 3B LAD

Recommended Posts

The 18 year old Migue Vargas just got promoted to A ball recently.

 

The guy was destroying rookie ball.  In 30 games in rookie ball Miguel Vargas hit .400 and OPSed 1.049

 

His walk rate seems to improve every time he gets promoted.  Small sample but a very optimistic trend.

Still 19 years old. Currently 4th in the Midwest League with a 149 wRC+. Super prodigy Wander Franco had a 154 wRC+ before getting promoted. Nolan Gorman currently with a 127 wRC+. Out-performing other 19/20 year old top prospects like Alek Thomas, Turang, Edwards, Freeman, Amaya in the same league. 

Last 2 games he has 4 bombs. Dodgers might have tapped his power so look out because Vargas has a 0.81 BB/K as well.

Thanks for bumping the thread and providing the above.  He does look like he has some upside, possibly this is a breakout, but I would caution that his strong 2 game power display is anything consequential.  If he continues to bang XBH and Hrs in the next couple weeks, then I'm on the train.

There is some Yandy Diaz like similarities to his profile.  Hopefully unlike Yandy, he makes his adjustments well before he's 27.  The hit and on base tool itself are very promising.  The young man knows how to hit.

3 for 5 with 2 doubles and a HR last night... He's hitting .367 (36 for 98) over his last 23 games.
