21-Year-Old First Baseman1B

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Teams are moving away from the notion that a first baseman needs to be a big left-handed hitter who fields his position well, and this movement culminated in Vaughn (6-foot, R/R) getting selected out of Cal with the No. 2 overall pick. The recent success of players like Rhys Hoskins and Pete Alonso lessened the perceived risk, but moreover, evaluators just love Vaughn's bat that much. He could be a 70-grade hitter with 70-grade power, and in the American League especially, the rest of his profile wouldn't really matter at that point. His raw power was not on full display in his pro debut, but his batted-ball profile was excellent and his 38:30 K:BB in 55 games illustrated his strong handle of strike zone. He is a below-average runner, so his ceiling is capped as a four-category monster. Vaughn is a good bet to be the first player from his draft class to reach the majors, perhaps as early as this summer. Read Past Outlooks

March 19, 2020
Vaughn batted .304/.448/.522 with three extra-base hits and five RBI over 23 spring at-bats.
ANALYSIS
Vaughn showed off his advanced bat and plate discipline during the Cactus League. The 21-year-old first baseman projects to hit for average and power while working counts and getting on base at healthy clips. Jose Abreu at first base and Edwin Encarnacion at DH are blocking Vaughn in 2020, but Chicago's first-round pick (third overall) in the 2019 draft could be around in September and the postseason, should the White Sox qualify. A 2021 placement in Chicago seems likely.
