Another HR last night. .284/.340/.503 with 9 HR and 10 2B in 47 G at AAA. At this point, it's silly he is not up in the bigs getting a shot. He will certainly be in the mix next spring with Kieboom with Vargas as security.
This is one of the few cases where I'm fine with them slowing a guy down. Let's see how AAA pitchers adjust in the short time left this season. Then bring him as an invitee to Spring Training.

I'm fine with an infield of Voit/Meneses, Garcia, Abrams, and Vargas. Since they need to see how real Vargas is, there aren't any wasted ABs in that group.
