Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Swipes seventh bag

Varsho went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Wednesday's 7-4 loss to the Guardians. Varsho, who was a double-digit base stealer in the minors, hasn't run as much since coming to the majors, but Wednesday's theft was his career-high seventh (caught four times). He has 26 starts at catcher in 2022, which likely qualifies him for that position next season. A catcher-eligible player that runs is a valuable fantasy asset.

Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Makes impact off bench

Varsho went 2-for-2 with a three-run home run and a double in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Giants. Varsho didn't start Tuesday -- Carson Kelly was behind the dish and Jordan Luplow patrolled right field. Varsho entered the game as a pinch hitter for Kelly in the seventh inning and promptly hit a ground rule double. He stayed in the game and added a three-run blast in the eighth to give the Diamondbacks a multi-run lead. The 26-year-old is locked in at the plate, as he's gone 8-for-16 (.500) with a pair of homers and nine RBI to begin July. For the season, he's slashing .247/.305/.435 with 12 long balls, 41 RBI, 38 runs scored, five stolen bases and 15 doubles through 74 contests. He may sit out against some southpaws, but he'll often pinch hit against right-handed relievers in those games.

Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Homers off bench Saturday

Varsho went 1-for-1 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 11-7 loss to the Rockies. Varsho went yard as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning, but that only got the Diamondbacks within four runs. He's gone 8-for-38 (.211) in his last 10 contests, adding two homers, seven RBI and four runs scored. The 26-year-old is up to a .235/.296/.415 slash line with 11 homers, 35 RBI, 35 runs scored and four stolen bases through 288 plate appearances. Given his lackluster hitting lately, it wouldn't be surprising to see Varsho receive more regular rest with Arizona's outfield at full health.

Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Goes yard in Sunday's win

Varsho went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk and two total runs scored in Sunday's 11-7 win over the Tigers. Varsho's 1-for-17 performance over his four previous games saw him drop down to seventh in the order. His homer Sunday was his first since June 10, though he picked up three doubles in 12 contests in the interim. The 25-year-old is up to a .239/.303/.417 slash line with 10 homers, 32 RBI, 34 runs scored and four stolen bases across 67 contests. While he's slipped out of the leadoff role, his ability to play in the outfield or behind the dish should keep him in the lineup on a near-daily basis.
