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

Will join big-league camp

January 21, 2020
Vaughn was invited to the White Sox's big-league camp, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Vaughn finished his first season with High-A Winston-Salem with a .252/.349/.411 slash line to go along with three home runs and 21 RBI. The White Sox first-round pick (third overall) in the 2019 draft has shown great plate discipline in addition to having a powerful bat, as the first baseman recorded a 30:35 BB:K in 229 plate appearances for Low-A Kannapolis and High-A Winston-Salem. The highly rated prospect likely needs some more minor-league experience before he's ready to push for a big-league roster spot.
