The Dodgers got some great news on Wednesday, as it sounds like Miguel Vargas is officially fully healed from his right pinky injury. Vargas told Fabian Ardaya on Wednesday that his routine is “back to normal,” and he expects to be able to swing a bat in the next game he plays in.
Vargas isn’t in the lineup on Wednesday, so that means he’ll probably be in there on Thursday, ready to swing away.
Vargas injured his right pinky before the Cactus League began, and has been unable to swing a bat. He’s still been in the lineup, as Dave Roberts wanted him to get experience playing second base. However, when his 9-spot has come up in the lineup, he’s kept the bat on his shoulder, taken pitches and, surprisingly, reached base a good amount of times.
The good news is Vargas won’t have to keep this up much longer, as it sounds like he’ll be able to swing a bat next time he’s in the lineup.
It’s nice to know that his finger has healed nicely, and he can start working on the hitting techniques he learned practicing with J.D. Martinez this offseason.
