2018 FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE SIGNINGS: METS INK JASON VARGAS TO HELP INJURY-RIDDLED ROTATION

The New York Mets officially agreed to terms with free agent pitcher Jason Vargas on Friday, inking the 2017 All-Star to join a rotation that has been shredded with injuries the last few seasons.  While Vargas is aging as he just turned 35, he showed last season that he can still get batters out coming off a Tommy John elbow surgery:

18-11
4.16 ERA
1.33 WHIP
134 K

While the overall numbers were solid, it was a clear tale of two halves for Vargas who pitched to a 2.62 ERA in prior to the All-Star Break but then was abominable to the point of recording a 6.38 mark in the second half.  Be that as it may, the overall picture remains the same with Vargas in terms of him being a strikeout-averse pitcher who is as much of a contact guy as you can get.  Vargas' 6.71 K/9 rate last season was abysmal and with little margin of error, any one start is prone to blowing up badly.  In terms of fantasy baseball, Vargas barely holds SP 5 value in mixers and ideally you want to avoid the guy outright.
