Jason Vargas picked up his third win after throwing seven scoreless innings and allowing just three hits with no walks and six strikeouts against the Mariners on Friday.
After surrendering 12 earned runs over his last two starts, Vargas bounced back in a big way on Friday night to the turn of a seven inning shutout. He is now 3-1 with a 3.04 ERA and 1.14 WHIP through eight starts and should continue to be productive as long as he keeps up his low walk rate (10 BB in 53.1 IP). Vargas will look to keep the ball rolling when he takes on the Orioles on Thursday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.
Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day.
