Varga was one of the top underclass shortstops in the country while attending a Florida high school, but he was more interested in pitching and ran his fastball up to 94 mph at the Tournament of Stars as a rising junior. His only showcase outing last year impressed, when he showed a 92-95 mph fastball and hammer curveball at Perfect Game National. But biceps tendinitis kept him out most of the summer and fall, including the Perfect Game and Under Armour All-American games. His velocity has not been as consistent this spring. Varga often touches 93-94 mph before settling in at 89-91 in the middle innings of games. In his most recent start of the season, Varga held his velocity better, sitting 90-94. His curveball is one of the better breaking balls in the amateur ranks, with at least plus potential. Not only is it an out pitch, but he also commands it well. Varga has not used a changeup often this spring but his athleticism will likely make it at least a serviceable offering. He has an athletic delivery and throws strikes. The North Carolina commit is the son of a professional basketball player who played in Europe. Varga is one of the older prospects in the class and will be 20 by the end of the 2014 minor league season because of transferring schools across countries when he was younger.
