Andrew Vaughn News
Chicago White Sox outfielder/first baseman Andrew Vaughn joined in on the fun when his team clubbed five home runs in Thursday's 8-2 win over the Cleveland Guardians, going 1-for-3 with a solo homer of his own. It was his 16th this season, and he now has 69 RBI and 57 runs over 119 games. Vaughn has more power than he's shown thus far in his career, but the sophomore has displayed his hitting ability, batting .290. There hasn't been much talk of the 24-year-old, but his numbers look good in any fantasy lineup.
Chicago White Sox first baseman/outfielder Andrew Vaughn played an important role in Sunday's 8-2 win against the Texas Rangers, going 3-for-5 with a two-run home run. It was just his second home run in his last 16 games and his 11th of the season, which isn't that impressive given his power potential. However, Vaughn's still having a solid season, slashing .298/.349/.464 with 43 runs and 52 RBI across 86 games. The 24-year-old has value in every format with those numbers but is a better player in dynasty leagues, assuming he finds his power stroke at some point.
Chicago White Sox outfielder Andrew Vaughn is not part of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Guardians. AJ Pollock and Gavin Sheets will be the team's corner outfielders for the game. White Sox manager Tony La Russa stated prior to the game that Vaughn's day off was recommended by trainers, though he didn't provide any details as to why it was recommended. However, La Russa did add that Vaughn would be available to pinch hit for the game. The 24-year-old has had a strong year at the plate, slashing .298/.345/.462 with 10 home runs, 49 RBI and 38 runs across 75 games. It seems likely that he'll be back in the starting lineup on Monday.
After winning the AL MVP in 2020 and signing a new three-year contract, incumbent first baseman Jose Abreu isn't going anywhere but that doesn't mean that Vaughn won't play a significant role in 2021. The rookie first baseman's development took a hit when his first full pro season was disrupted by the pandemic but he received valuable instruction at the alternate training site. Our early expectation was that Vaughn would open the year in double-A but he's seen a lot of playing time early in the spring and is performing well. There is a good argument to be had over who the best first-base prospect in the majors is Vaughn or 2020 first-overall pick Spencer Torkelson (although the Tigers will give the latter a chance to play the hot corner). For our money, the White Sox prospect is the safer better as the more well-rounded player who should hit for power and average while also producing strong on-base numbers. With a current ADP near 237, there is clearly hype around Vaughn's impending impact despite his uncertain ETA. He has the skillset and pedigree to expedite his learning curve and be a strong fantasy contributor in 2021.
