  • Nationals' Ildemaro Vargas: Avoids arbitration with Nationals

    Vargas and the Nationals avoided arbitration Wednesday by agreeing to a one-year contract for 2024. Vargas is making $975,000 this season and should get a little salary bump for 2024. The 32-year-old utility player has a career-high 280 plate appearances with the Nats in 2023, producing a .245/.299/.354 batting line with four home runs. Vargas does not have options left, so he figures to head into next season in a reserve role for the Nationals.

  • Nationals' Ildemaro Vargas: Resting Thursday

    Vargas isn't in the Nationals' lineup Thursday against Atlanta, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.

  • Nationals' Ildemaro Vargas: On bench Monday

    Vargas is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the White Sox, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports. The Nationals have been running a three-headed timeshare at third base of late, with Vargas, Carter Kieboom and Jake Alu having now made two starts apiece at the position over the past six games. Alu seems to have the most stable playing-time outlook of the three, as he'll now make his third straight start in left field in place of the slumping Travis Blankenhorn. The lack of consistent at-bats for either Vargas or Kieboom makes both players tough to rely upon, even in NL-only leagues.

  • Nationals' Ildemaro Vargas: Belts fourth homer

    Vargas went 2-for-4 with a home run, four RBI and two runs in Friday's win over the Athletics. The veteran utility man tied his career high in RBI with the performance, which was highlighted by a three-run homer off Sam Long in the seventh inning -- Vargas' fourth homer of the year. The 32-year-old switch hitter has emerged as the Nationals' starting third baseman in the wake of the Jeimer Candelario trade, and he's been surprisingly productive in the role. Vargas is batting just .250 (8-for-32) so far in August, but he has nine RBI and a .531 SLG thanks to three doubles and two homers.

  • Nationals' Ildemaro Vargas: Gets third straight start

    Vargas will start at third base and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Reds, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. He'll be manning the hot corner for the third consecutive game and looks like he'll settle in as the Nationals' top option at the position in the wake of Jeimer Candelario being traded to the Cubs. Jake Alu appeared set to get the first chance to replace Candelario, but he's now picked up two straight starts at second base and should serve as the Nationals' primary option at the keystone after the struggling Luis Garcia was demoted to Triple-A Rochester.

  • Nationals' Ildemaro Vargas: Sits after three straight starts

    Vargas is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

The Nationals faced left-handed starting pitchers in each of those last three contests, but Vargas will find himself on the bench Sunday versus Rangers right-hander Dane Dunning. Vargas looks as though he'll be limited to a short-side platoon role for the foreseeable future.

  • Nationals' Ildemaro Vargas: Swats second homer

    Vargas went 2-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Phillies. He took Connor Brodgon deep in the ninth inning for a somewhat meaningless blow in an 11-3 rout. Vargas continues to be used sparingly and has only 52 plate appearances on the season, but the veteran utility player has produced a .320/.333/.540 slash line with two homers, nine runs and 10 RBI when he's gotten into the lineup.

    Vargas is currently dealing with a stiff shoulder and is scheduled to be checked out by trainers Monday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.
