Dodgers Prospects: Miguel Vargas’ Major League Debut, James Outman Singles

The much-anticipated debut of Miguel Vargas was quite impactful as the Dodgers beat the Giants 3-0. First, some pre-game videos.

His pre-game interview.

With Trayce Thompson on second base and one out, Vargas came up for his first major league at-bat. The pitcher was Alex Cobb of the Giants. He laced a double to right-center field that would have been out in 17 different ballparks. That type of opposite field power has been on display at least since I first saw him with the Quakes in 2019 as a 19-year-old. He is a natural-born hitter.

Blake Treinen was able to get the ball back for Vargas.

He also stole 3rd base on the first pitch after his double. It is at the end of the following video.

In his second at-bat with Max Muncy on third base, he hit a smash to 3rd base to bring in the run. 2 at-bats, and 2 RBI.

James Outman scored the third run in the 7th inning on a sacrifice fly from Mookie Betts. Outman singled earlier in the inning. The rookies helped account for all 3 runs for the Dodgers.
