The Chicago White Sox have seen their bats start to come alive over the last few games. They still have a long way to go before anyone is fully confident in their offense but they are on the right path. When they get back to full strength, they should be even better.
Right now, Eloy Jimenez and Andrew Vaughn are the big bats missing from the batting order right now. Jimenez seems to be ahead of schedule but he is still a few weeks away. It will surely be a big boost when he gets back.
Andrew Vaughn, however, is right on the cusp of coming back. The White Sox sent him to AAA this week on a rehab assignment to get his timing back down. It didn’t take him long to do that either as he seems to be just terrorizing AAA pitching already.
It isn’t all that surprising as we know how good Vaughn is at hitting at the MLB level so, of course, he is dominating at a lower level. To be honest, they should just bring him back up as soon as possible because he is ready.
Andrew Vaughn has been so good for the Chicago White Sox this season.
On Thursday night while the White Sox were busy losing to the New York Yankees at home, Vaughn was busy smashing home runs for the AAA Charlotte Knights. He went 2-3 with those two homers and had two walks as well. His OPS is now 1.587 in the short sample size.
It is funny because Vaughn really had no time in the minors before making his MLB debut with the White Sox in 2021. The pandemic had a lot to do with that but he also was just simply good enough to play in the big leagues.
Now, he is so valuable that the White Sox literally can’t wait to get him back. He provides some much-needed power to this lineup that can be dangerous when they are on their game.
If he gets back and is seeing the ball the way that he is in AAA right now, they will win a lot of games in partial thanks to him and his abilities. It is good to have Andrew Vaughn in the Chicago White Sox organization.
