However, in the life of any person, circumstances may occur that favor the cultivation of patience in a more accelerated way.

To try to make the rehabilitation evolve as well as possible, the Southern California ninth kept him from swinging during multiple Spring Training games.

Vargas drew nine negotiated walks and at some point in the preseason he had a .500 on-base percentage without ever swinging the bat.
