White Sox GM Rick Hahn says the organization expects top prospect Andrew Vaughn to contribute in the majors for the bulk of the 2021 season.
Hahn elaborated that the team views Vaughn similar to how they viewed Luis Robert and Nick Madrigal after 2019, and how they viewed Eloy Jimenez after 2018. Basically, Vaughn is going to get a chance in the majors next season. The No. 3 overall pick from the 2019 amateur draft, Vaughn is going to be an exciting fantasy asset come draft season. The 22-year-old is a power hitting first baseman that could wind up batting in the heart of Chicago's lineup. Perhaps Hahn will try to sign him to a club-friendly extension before the season. The White Sox have a history of doing so with their top prospects.
MArk Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports that White Sox 1B prospect Andrew Vaughn will be a part of the team's postseason player pool.
Vaughn was the third overall pick in the 2019 draft and finished the season strong in High-A. This doesn't mean for certain that he'll play in the playoffs, but it's interesting that Chicago is even thinking about including him. Vaughn would likely need an injury or two to see postseason at-bats.
Andrew Vaughn was seen taking reps at third base during workouts this week.
Vaughn had taken grounders at third base and even shortstop during normal Spring Training to keep him flexible. With Yoan Moncada still away from the team, Vaughn could see the occasional appearance at third. Moncada is expected to be with the team soon, so there's nothing actionable here yet.
Andrew Vaughn is among the White Sox prospects included in the team's 2020 player pool.
As expected; Luis Robert, Nick Madrigal, and Michael Kopech are also included. Vaughn finished the 2019 season in High-A and isn't expected to contribute at the major league level this year. Chicago simply feels that putting him on the taxi squad is best for his long-term development.
Andrew Vaughn hit a solo homer and drew a walk on Friday against the Indians.
Vaughn, the third overall pick from the 2019 draft, hit .278/.384/.449 in 55 games at High-A last year. The 21-year-old possesses a lot of power with the ability to get on base at an above-average clip. He is strictly a first baseman, which limits his upside as a prospect, but this is a name to know for dynasty league players.
