Vargas, 30, will replace the departed Ervin Santana in the Royals rotation. General manager Dayton Moore initially pushed hard to sign righthander Tim Hudson before he ended up signing with San Francisco.
The lefthanded Vargas was 9-8 with a 4.02 ERA in 24 starts last season for the Angels, but missed almost two months of the season following surgery to remove a blood clot in his left armpit.
I think the whole world is going insane… I did not see Vargas getting a four year deal Vargas was temporarily a Met before he was traded in that forgettable J.J. Putz deal.
Move over Sandy… I think I’m coming down with a case of sticker shock too…
