Re: Brewers Release Vargas
Vargas looks to be a decent enough back end starter for a thin NL staff. He's basically Josh Fogg/Phil Dumatrait stuff-wise but has not real history of eating innings. He has league average peripherals (K/9, BB/9) for a NL starter but his extreme flyball tendencies means he's more homer prone than an average starter (and hence his backend status).
I can see why Krivsky passed.
