The Chicago White Sox were put further ahead in the ballgame against the Minnesota Twins when Andrew Vaughn hit a huge two-run home run! It was the long-anticipated first career home run for Vaughn as he is the organization’s number one prospect. He is well known for having lots of power and it was on full display on this hit. It was a great moment for him and all of White Sox nation as one of the team’s future stars is here to stay.
Andrew Vaughn hit his first career home run in a Chicago White Sox uniform.
Seeing Andrew Vaughn hit his first is big news for the Chicago White Sox. He is a super polished hitter that just needed to get his first out of the way. He has had a decent start to his MLB career but getting the first home run is always important, especially when you are known for being a power hitter.
Vaughn has been presented with the challenge of changing his position for this season. So they can get his bat in the lineup, they have been having him be the left fielder in place of Eloy Jimenez. It looked a little rusty at first (despite no real issues) and now he looks like a natural out there for the most part. You can expect him to feel even better out there now that his first career home run is out of the way.
Now that Vaughn has his first, you can expect more to come in bunches. It always happens with some of these prospects and now his career can really take off. The White Sox believe that he can be an elite hitter in the middle of their rotation. You saw exactly why when that ball sailed away into the chilly Chicago sky. It is only going to get better from here.
So now what? Well, it would be nice to see him in the lineup every single day. He has the first one off his chest so more are inbound. It is up to him to take advantage of all opportunities. He deserves the praise that he is going to get for that home run but he has a whole career ahead of him now. The White Sox lineup is going to be so good when he really reaches his true potential. Congrats on the first, Andrew Vaughn. We believe it is the first of many.
