Reds claim slugger Kennys Vargas off waivers from Twins

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) The Cincinnati Reds have claimed slugger Kennys Vargas off waivers from the Minnesota Twins.

The Reds announced the acquisition Thursday. The 27-year-old Vargas batted .253 with career highs of 11 home runs and 41 RBIs in 78 games last season. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound switch-hitter made all his starts with Minnesota at either first base or designated hitter.

Vargas was designated for assignment by the Twins last week to make room when Jake Cave was acquired from the New York Yankees.
