7. Andrew Vaughn’s Chicago White Sox rookie season would look nice batting seventh.
The Chicago White Sox were in lots of rumors regarding their DH situation this offseason. There were guys like Joc Pederson and Marcell Ozuna to consider but there were actual legs to the Nelson Cruz rumor. He sure would have looked good in a White Sox uniform and he also would no longer be on the Minnesota Twins if he did that. Unfortunately, he went back to the Twins so the White Sox had to decide something else for the DH spot.
It sounds like Andrew Vaughn is going to be taking that spot. He has never played a single game in Major League Baseball but he is already one of the best hitters the White Sox have. When he was drafted, he was the best power hitter in the nation and we are starting to see why. He has been awesome so far in spring training which is a very good sign.
A hitter like Vaughn batting seventh could look really nice as the season goes along. He might be the future three or four-hitter but this team is so deep that they can have him hit this low in the lineup. He will be coming up after the team’s six best hitters which could really help him. He also has some talent coming after him in the lineup which should allow him to see some nice pitches.
