White Sox claim RHP Emilio Vargas off waivers from Diamondbacks


(670 The Score) The White Sox have claimed right-hander Emilio Vargas off waivers from the Diamondbacks, they announced Friday afternoon.

Vargas, 24, has never appeared in an MLB game before. He had a 3.84 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 20 starts split between rookie ball and Double-A in 2019 before the pandemic canceled the 2020 minor league season. Vargas has a career 3.48 ERA in parts of seven minor league seasons.

In other moves, the White Sox added right-hander Tyler Johnson, third baseman Jake Burger and infielder Gavin Sheets to their 40-man roster, which is now full.
