    After observing Vargas in the junior league for a while, the marlins gave him a slot in the senior pitch squad alongside seasoned veterans like Olsen. His ML debut roosted on 14/07/05 after he had secured a spot on the team replacing an injured major league team member. In the major league, Vargas was an instant star and by the time his replacement had recuperated, he was already an integral member of the team and was kept on. The following season, Jason was made a fixture in the main rotation although the competition began to prove too stiff for the budding player.

    He was eventually benched but the player once again made an impressive recovery which saw him back in the ML by the middle of the year. The unlucky streak was unfortunately not over however because soon after his return to the team, he permitted thirteen and 4 home runs. He was quickly shipped back to the junior team for the rest of the season although his play still remained lousy.
