Miguel Vargas
19-Year-Old Third Baseman3B

2019 Fantasy Outlook
After a two-year absence from competitive baseball, Vargas burst onto the dynasty-league radar by leading the Pioneer League with a .394 AVG before earning a promotion to the Midwest League. Vargas, who turned 19 in November, defected from Cuba when he was 16 and signed with the Dodgers for $300,000 in September of 2017. He was too advanced for rookie-level pitchers, but met some resistance at Low-A. Vargas used the whole field at all three stops, but after his promotion to Low-A, his LD% plummeted from 25.3% to 17.9% and his GB% spiked from 38.0% to 51.8%, which largely explains his drop in production. Already 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, it is quite possible Vargas (R/R) will be a below-average defensive third baseman by the time he is big-league ready, but the Dodgers won't move him to first base until they absolutely have to. His offensive production has a chance to be good enough for mediocre defense to be tolerated at third base. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
The 19-year-old Cuban third baseman was raking for Low-A Great Lakes, prompting the Dodgers to bump him up a level. Vargas' professional career is off to an impressive start offensively, as he's sporting a .327/.401/.465 slash line through 480 at-bats between his time with the Dodgers' rookie-league affiliates and Low-A.
