Ildemaro Vargas
27-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Vargas spent close to a decade in the minor leagues before making his debut for the Diamondbacks in 2017. Now 27, Vargas is getting a look in a utility role with Arizona. He's mostly served off the bench, starting just two of the Diamondbacks' first 16 games of 2019, but he's done reasonably well in his limited opportunities so far. Vargas has always been a slap-hitting infielder with middling power, failing to exceed even 10 homers during his time on the farm. He did once steal 21 bases in 22 attempts during a season (2016), but Vargas was just 10-for-14 on the basepaths at Triple-A Reno last year. This is a player who would project for maybe 10 homers and 10 steals if he were given a full season's worth of at-bats at the major-league level. It's not the kind of skill set worth speculating on in mixed leagues, as the upside is limited even if playing time were to open up. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
The 27-year-old was sent to the minors on Monday but is able to make a quick return with Jake Lamb (quadriceps) headed to the injured list. Vargas went 1-for-6 with a double and a run scored and should serve as a reserve infielder.
