MLB Future Watch: Daulton Varsho Baseball Cards, Arizona DiamondbacksMLB Future Watch: Daulton Varsho Baseball Cards, Arizona DiamondbacksDaulton Varsho is powering his way to Arizona. He was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the second round of the 2017 MLB Amateur Draft. This stocky catcher/outfielder has the kind of power all teams are looking for.

Varsho, former Marshfield High School star was the talk of Wisconsin, after hitting .462 with 31 RBI and 17 steals. The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee came calling, and Varsho joined the program. His father, Gary, was a good major league ballplayer so the bloodline is there.

In 2015, Varsho started 43 of 51 games. He had 18 extra-base hits. In 2016, he was named the Horizon League Player of the Year, the sixth person in the program to accomplish that. He hit .381 with six triples, eight home runs, and 51 RBI. Catching at that time, he threw out 20 runners!

In 2017, he was a semi-finalist for the Johnny Bench Award. He had 11 home runs and 47 RBI and was a Second-Team All-American. Teams that can find offensive catchers like this are lucky and Arizona hit the jackpot with this prospect.

In 2020, he slugged 18 home runs with 58 RBI for the Jackson Generals. He then got a 37-game stint in the big leagues hitting three home runs with nine RBI and three steals.

Varsho started the 2021 year in AAA, where he hit nine homers and drove in 25 in just 19 games. He was then elevated to the majors, where he’s been a boost for a struggling Diamondbacks team. Varsho has a classic left-handed power swing. He loads up on the back leg and lets it rip. A month ago, he had a walk-off home run and he hit 17 doubles and 11 home runs in 92 games. Playing both catcher and outfield, he’s even robbed a team of a home run like his dad used to. This guy is extremely versatile.

The first card that caught my eye was Varsho’s 2021 Topps Chrome rookie card. It’s a nice card that shows him just after he’s swung at a pitch.

I love his 2021 Topps Finest Flashback rookie card. The design catches the eye, and the photo is a close-up of him possibly admiring a home run he just hit.

His 2021 Topps Series 2 Black Border rookie card is perfection. It has all the elements, and the white Diamondbacks jersey makes it pop. Daulton Varsho is the guy to collect right away.
