Daulton Varsho News
Arizona Diamondbacks catcher/outfielder Daulton Varsho is not in the starting lineup on Saturday against the San Francisco Giants. The 26-year-old looks to just be getting a day off but should be available as a pinch-hitter in this one. Varsho has put together an excellent season, slashing .238/.306/.452 with 27 home runs, 73 RBI, and 14 stolen bases across 513 at-bats for the D-Backs.
Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Ketel Marte (hamstring) and outfielder/catcher Daulton Varsho (jaw) both left Sunday's game against the Colorado Rockies early due to injuries. Marte exited with left hamstring tightness after running the bases in the ninth inning. Manager Torey Lovullo said the team is hoping it's nothing serious and that Marte will return to the starting lineup soon. Varsho was hit in the jaw by a baseball that was tossed to him as the outfielders were running into the dugout between innings. Lovullo said Varsho could have continued playing but he was removed as a precautionary measure. It sounds like both players should be available for fantasy managers soon, but it remains to be seen if they'll be available for the doubleheader against the San Francisco Giants on Monday.
Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Daulton Varsho went without a hit in the 10-4 loss to the San Diego Padres on Wednesday. He was 0-for-5 with a pair of punch-outs. Varsho's now hitting .237 with nine home runs, 32 runs, 28 RBI, and four stolen bases across 64 games. After a strong start to the season, the 25-year-old has done almost nothing since the end of May. Over his last 30 games, Varsho's slashing .229/.276/.356 with three home runs and one stolen base. He's startable in two catcher leagues, but fantasy managers in shallower formats can bench him until he turns things around.
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.
