The Diamondbacks selected Varsho, 24, in the second round of the 2017 draft. Currently their No. 3 prospect according to MLB Pipeline, Varsho hit .301/.378/.520 with 25 doubles, 18 home runs, 58 RBI, 85 runs scored, and 21 stolen bases over 452 plate appearances with Double-A Jackson last season.
Carson Kelly and Stephen Vogt are currently ahead of Varsho on the catching depth chart, so it will be interesting to see how the D-Backs find him playing time. He could be used at other positions. He has a very small amount of experience in the outfield and played some infield in the Northwoods League, a collegiate summer league.
Varsho is the son of former MLB outfielder and coach Gary Varsho, who played from 1988-95 with the Cubs, Pirates, Reds, and Phillies.
