Hello all, I have decided it is in the best interest of my family and I to move on from Daulton Varsho. Torey Luvollo, although I respect him, has a much different vision for his team and we can'

Just got called up by the Dbacks, catcher with power and speed that was getting some play in the OF. Definitely an intriguing skillset with C eligibility if he gets PT.    

Lovullo said they brought him up to "inject offense" into their stagnant .202 team avg... Sounds like he's going to play...if he rakes then he'll stay on the grass... Scooped.

He's starting in CF tonight. He's started every game but one this month and homered in 2 out of his last 5. He's probably a year away but looks like a nice prospect. HIs profile reminds of what Blake Swithart was suppose to be (good bat and athlete but questionable catcher). Hopefully he pans out though.

He's been playing most days here lately. Yahoo keeper leagues owners are hoping for just one more start at catcher...or two more games. 

He has 7 starts in center (8 after tonight), 5 starts in left and 4 starts at catcher so far.  He also has 8 appearances at catcher as well.  So one more start or two more appearances and he will gain catcher to start out next year on Yahoo.

Yeah, that’s what I was saying :)...one more start at catcher or two more games. Fingers crossed that he gets it. If so, he becomes a potentially very valuable catcher in Yahoo leagues.

Yeah you did.  Me bad. But you said "here" as well.  Which meant center to me given the context that you were replying to the CF comment above you.  He also qualifies in left.

According to lineups.com and MLB.com, Varsho is currently slated to leadoff and start at catcher today. For Yahoo keeper leagues, that pretty awesome news, assuming that he gets regular ABs in 2021, of course. 

I know his BA has been a struggle in his time in the Majors this year, but I'm hopeful that changes over a full season. He's hitting .151 entering today, but also has a BABIP of .191. One thing that impresses me is his walk % has risen every season as a professional...8.0% in low-A, 8.5 in high-A, 9.3 in AA, and 10.8 this year. That's encouraging to me, but his K% needs to come down. 

Of course, all this is assuming that he breaks camp next year with Arizona and actually gets to play everyday or almost everyday as an OF.

Lol, sorry...might be a southern thing..."here lately" means "recently" :D
