It is finally happening! Today is the day that the Chicago White Sox will allow Andrew Vaugh to make his debut in Major League Baseball. It is as big of a day for him as he will have in his entire life. He was the third overall pick in the 2019 MLB Draft and the White Sox have been high on him ever since. He is their number one organizational prospect and the number 14th in all of baseball. No pure first baseman is ranked higher than him in the sport either.
Andrew Vaughn’s MLB debut is an incredibly exciting time for Chicago White Sox fans.
Vaughn is looking to excite White Sox fans for many years. He would become one of many great prospects to come into the organization and make a tremendous impact. He gets praise for being an incredible power hitter. He is widely considered the best power-hitting prospect in the game right now. He might have to adjust at first but he has the pure skillset to be a great hitter for a long time.
The thing that Vaughn has going for him is the fact that he is joining a really good team. Some of the prospects that came before him had to be a part of a rebuilding team for a little bit before it all came together. Vaughn is joining right in that sweet spot of their window.
As a result, there will be less pressure too. Guys like Tim Anderson, Jose Abreu, Luis Robert, and Yoan Moncada amongst others will be sharing the same lineup sheet as him which should help him as well. That should also help his production because he is well protected in the lineup. He will see good pitches and have plenty of opportunities to drive in runs.
Due to the unfortunate circumstances with the Eloy Jimenez injury, he is being tried out in left field to start his career. Before that injury, it was thought that he would be the designated hitter but they are now going to try him out in left. It should be fun to see if he can handle that and help the White Sox get through Jimenez’s injury.
Vaughn is going to be batting fifth in the White Sox lineup today. That is not a bad spot to be in for a lineup like this. With Jose Abreu and Yoan Moncada hitting right before him and Yasmani Grandal right after, he is in a great spot. Hopefully, this is a great debut for a great young baseball player! It is a great spark for a team looking for its first win.
