Michael Vargas is a 2008 OF/IF with a 5'10'', 175 lb. frame from Hawthorne, NJ who attends Don Bosco Prep. He has a compact, live body with some present strength. Vargas' top present tool is his speed. He's a 6.52 runner with very good first step quickness that he uses both defensively and on the bases. Vargas is a primary outfielder and looked good on defense with his speed and arm strength, but he also plays some second base and the pro scouts are likely going to be much more interested in him at that position. He looked very good defensively in the infield in the short look we had. Offensively, Vargas hits out of a balanced stance with a simple, compact swing. He has the right idea with his swing of what his tools are; make line drive contact to all fields and use his speed and quickness. Right now Vargas has timing/trigger issues with high velocity pitching, as he starts with high hands and very little load and his late preparation puts him behind against the best pitchers. He's physically capable of making adjustments as he sees better competition. Vargas is a good student and likes to play.
