The MLB season is set to take place in a shortened form this year, starting later this month. While we’ve gotten official word on their start date, we’ve also gotten to see some of the future stars at the position as organizations have been forced to go without the Minor League System this year.
While he was probably ready for the pros this year regardless, that means we’ll likely get to see more of Chicago White Sox 1B Andrew Vaughn, the former California Golden Bears first baseman and No. 3 overall pick in the 2019 MLB Draft.
It’s not a surprise why we’d like to see more of Vaughn.

Vaughn’s illustrious career at Cal includes Freshman of the Year, Pac-12 Player of the Year, Golden Spikes Award and an absolute smattering of home run after home run.
He signed with the White Sox to a $7.2 million contract and finished his first year in the White Sox organization with stops in Class A (where he batted .600), Class A-Advanced (where he batted .410).
Here’s hoping we get to see more of that power on display in this shortened MLB season once we finally get it underway.
