Prospect of the Day:  RHP Claudio Vargas

Despite beginning the season pitching in Mexico, Vargas has been a very useful pitcher for the organization in Triple-A Nashville. His stuff remains middling and his command can still get shaky at times, but he has still compiled a 3.58 ERA over 98 innings this season. That includes an impressive 2.61 ERA over his last ten starts since the beginning of July.

The most intriguing part of Vargas’ hot streak on the mound revolves around the fact that Doug Melvin and Ron Roenicke are deciding whether they wish to shut down Mark Rogers and Mike Fiers due to season innings totals or not. If both arms get shut down in the coming weeks, the organization will need a pair of arms to shoulder the load.

Shaun Marcum’s return would obviously fit one of the holes — likely to be Mark Rogers — and Vargas could be a contender for the other big league rotation spot. Perhaps Wily Peralta or Tyler Thornburg make more sense, but the fact that Milwaukee would even consider the 34-year-old hurler is a testament to his workhorse mentality in Triple-A this season.

That hard work culminated in a beautiful performance on Monday evening, as he allowed only two baserunners over eight innings and struck out seven.

    That Marcum kid who pitched in A ball last night looks like he has promise, too…
