Daulton Varsho News
Arizona Diamondbacks catcher/outfielder Daulton Varsho is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Atlanta Braves. The team is going with Carson Kelly behind the plate and Jake McCarthy in center field. Varsho has been a regular in the lineup over the second half of the year and he's strung together some decent stats, especially compared to other catcher-eligible players. Over 15 games in September, he's slashed .259/.283/.466 with two home runs, two stolen bases, eight RBI and seven runs. Fantasy managers in need of catcher help for the final 10 days of the year should take a hard look at Varsho if he's available.
Arizona Diamondbacks catcher/outfielder Daulton Varsho went 2-for 4 with a home run, one RBI and a run scored in a 5-2 loss to the Rockies on Saturday. It was Varsho's seventh homer of the season, as he's now slashing .224/.331/.410 with 20 RBI and 24 runs scored over 61 games. After a disappointing rookie campaign in 2020, Varsho has become a solid option in deeper formats and two-catcher leagues this season.
Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Daulton Varsho went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, three RBI and a run scored in an 8-3 loss to the Cubs on Friday. Varsho carried the team on offense in the lost, as he continued what has been a hot streak at the plate, where he is slashing .381/.480/.905 with three home runs, two steals, seven RBI and six runs scored over his last seven games. This is the kind of potential that Varsho has shown in the minors and that managers have been waiting for him to show in the majors. For now, managers in deeper leagues should look to add him, and managers in shallower formats will want to hold on for a little bit longer to make sure this level of performance lasts.
Arizona Diamondbacks catcher/outfielder Daulton Varsho will be ready this year to prove why he was considered one of the top catching prospects entering the 2020 season as he looks to shake off his poor debut campaign. Spending more time in the outfield than behind the plate, Varsho slashed .188/.287/.366 over 37 games, and while his 28.7 percent strikeout rate was higher than his career mark in the minors, his 10.4 percent walk rate was a positive sign in an otherwise rough year. He also seemed to heat up slightly at the plate late in the season, slashing .197/.291/.408 in the month of September. Looking at some of his advanced metrics there are indicators that he could be poised to make a solid impact in fantasy in 2021. His 11.1 percent HR/FB rate matched up with his career mark in the minors, and his 18.4 degree launch angle ranked him in the top 50 in the league among batters with at least 100 plate appearances. Varsho has shown 15 homer, 15 steal potential throughout his career in the minors, which is what managers should expect him to reach in 2021, making him a solid add at his current ADP of 163.
