Andrew Vaughn News
Chicago White Sox designated hitter Andrew Vaughn went 3-for-5 hitting a solo home run as the White Sox were victorious against the Rockies in Denver on Sunday. Vaughn made his mark early in the game, initiating the scoring with a 404-foot solo home run off Chris Flexen in the second frame. Later in the contest, he singled and crossed the plate during White Sox's seven-run surge in the eighth inning. The 25-year-old power hitter is now batting .253/.317/.430. During this year's campaign, he's cracked 16 home runs and logged 63 RBI in 430 at-bats.
Chicago White Sox first baseman Andrew Vaughn is back in the starting lineup Monday versus New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole. The 25-year-old didn't start Sunday's series finale against the Cleveland Guardians but entered the game as a pinch-hitter, going 1-for-2 with a run scored and a strikeout as part of his club's 5-3 victory. Vaughn, in the midst of his third big-league campaign, is hitting .250 with 14 homers and a .747 OPS across 429 trips to the plate. While he's offered more power this season, his overall work at the plate has resulted in a small step back from his production as a sophomore in 2022, as evidenced by his 105 wRC+ this season versus a 113 mark from a season ago.
Chicago White Sox first baseman/outfielder Andrew Vaughn (foot) is back in the starting lineup on Tuesday against right-hander Kyle Hendricks and the visiting Chicago Cubs, starting at first base and batting sixth in the order. Vaughn will make his return for the Pale Hose after missing a week due to a bruised left foot. X-rays came back negative, though, and he avoided a trip to the injured list. The 25-year-old former first-rounder will attempt to pick things up offensively, as he's hitting only .188 (9-for-48) with no homers, a double, four RBI and four runs scored in 12 games in July. Vaughn hasn't cleared the fences since June 24, so perhaps fantasy managers will want to keep him on their benches until he gets back on track at the plate.
Chicago White Sox first baseman/outfielder Andrew Vaughn posted respectable totals in his second big league season. The No. 3 pick overall in the 2019 MLB Draft slashed .271/.321/.429 with 17 home runs, 76 RBI, and 60 runs across 555 plate appearances in 2022. He continues to make strides offensively and saw his hard-hit percentage increase from 47.3% in 2021 to 48.6%, while his wOBA went up from .306 to .327 in 2022. Vaughn is expected to be Chicago's everyday first baseman now that Jose Abreu is with the Astros. The 24-year-old will move to his natural position at first base and should hit in the heart of the order. Look for Vaughn to continue to improve offensively; his hard-hit percentage is in the 90th percentile, and he has hit 32 homers in his first two big league seasons. ATC projections are on board with slight improvement for Vaughn and are projecting the young slugger to slash .263/.325/.426 with 20 homers, 72 RBI, 67 runs, and a 115 wRC+ over 586 plate appearances in 2023. With dual eligibility at first base and outfielder, Vaughn should produce solid numbers and is a worthy pick at his current NFBC ADP of 141.4.
