Future Watch: Andrew Vaughn Rookie Baseball Cards, White SoxFuture Watch: Andrew Vaughn Rookie Baseball Cards, White SoxAndrew Vaughn was selected by the Chicago White Sox with the 3rd overall pick in the 2019 MLB Amateur Draft. It started to ramp up for him at the University of California.

In 2017, he had 218 at-bats where he hit seven doubles and one triple, 12 homers and 50 RBI with a .349 batting average.

He had 23 home runs in 2018 with 63 RBI, 14 doubles and a .402 batting average!

In 2019, he hit 15 dingers with 50 RBI, 14 doubles and a .374 average.

He started out the 2019 season in rookie ball but after hitting a .600 batting average he was elevated to A-ball playing for the Kannapolis Intimidators. In 23 games he had two homers and 11 RBI.

Collectors can find his rookie card in the upcoming 2019 Bowman Draft. Also look for his cards in 2019 Panini Contenders Draft Picks and numerous USA Baseball sets from Panini.

According to his MLB.com Prospect Profile:

Vaughn has a sweet right-handed swing, plenty of bat speed and strength and no discernible flaws at the plate. He’s a natural hitter with natural power to all fields and he doesn’t try to do too much. He uses the entire field and won’t chase pitches when opponents try to work around him, and he could be a .300 hitter with 30 homers and 80 walks on an annual basis. Though Vaughn worked out at third base for some clubs before the Draft, he likely will be limited to first base. He’s a below-average runner but moves well enough around the bag. ETA 2020.

Here’s his sweet swing:

He has the swing. At 21, he has the frame, 6-0, 214 pounds. He looks like a classic first baseman who could make the team next season. Don’t be caught by surprise. Start collecting him right away.
