Andrew Vaughn – 1B

Andrew Vaughn might end up coming in and being one of the best power hitters on the team in the not so distant future. With guys like Eloy Jimenez, Jose Abreu, and Luis Robert in the mix, that means this lineup could really have some extra pop in short order. He had an outside chance at making the team out of Summer Camp but the White Sox ultimately decided to keep him down. He was just drafted a year ago after all.

As the third overall pick by the White Sox in 2019, you know that they have extremely high expectations for him. It almost seems like perfect timing for the White Sox to let Vaughn play first when he is ready and either move on from Abreu or allow him to become a designated hitter. Either way, Vaughn is going to be a very good player for this team.

If it happens for Vaugh this season, there is no doubt that he is going to need to adjust to Major League pitching. It might not take him long but there will certainly be a learning curve. If he doesn’t get the chance in 2020 then you can bet your bottom dollar that he is going to in 2021. Once he does finally arrive on the South Side, the White Sox are going to be a better team for it.
