It will be interesting to see what they do with Vargas, and he ends up blocking Alu or Kieboom. He's certainly earned consideration for next year, though i'd imagine primarily as the bench IF with Kieboom and Alu getting first look at 3B.
I think Vargas is eventually going to be who we thought he is: a glove first utility player.

If he proves us wrong and through 20 games next season has a solid slash line to go along with the glove, I don't think Alu is the type of prospect you're worried about "blocking." He plays multiple positions. Just call him up and let him find his spots.
