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.
Vargas is arb eligible, FWIW.  I am assuming they bring him back in sort of the Cesar Hernandez kind of role where he's could be a utility guy but is capable of starting if a rookie can't win the job from him.  I'm guessing they go into the spring with the expectation that Kieboom starts and Alu is in AAA, but would be flexible enough to let Vargas start for a couple weeks then call up Alu if Kieboom is still hurt or bombs in the spring.
