Vaughn went 2-for-4 in Sunday's 5-0 loss to Cleveland.
Vaughn, who had half of the White Sox's hits, returned to the lineup after getting a breather Saturday and continued a resurgence at the plate that began a couple of weeks ago. Sunday's two-hit effort was his third multi-hit game among the last six, and the rookie is batting .379 (11-for-29) over the last nine contests. He has been sharing left field with others, but the rookie could find his name in the starting lineup with more regularity following an injury to Luis Robert (hip). Robert is expected to hit the injured list, which means Leury Garcia and Billy Hamilton may be needed for center field.
Vaughn isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against Cleveland.
Vaughn had started each of the last three games and went 3-for-9 with two doubles, three runs and four strikeouts. Jake Lamb will start in left field and bat eighth.
Vaughn started in left field for both games of Thursday's doubleheader against the Tigers. He was a combined 3-for-6 with two doubles, a walk and three runs scored in Chicago's sweep.
Vaughn's average has steadily climbed after opening the season with three hits in his first 22 at-bats (.136). Since then, the rookie's reached base safely in seven straight with hits in six of them, going 9-for-22 and pushing his average to .273. Eventually, the White Sox hope to see Vaughn display more power. He has just one RBI over 15 games for a team that ranks second in MLB with 5.16 runs per game.
Vaughn is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Tigers.
He has a mini five-game hitting streak going but has still failed to wrangle a true everyday role just yet. Jake Lamb will start in left field and bat seventh.
Vaughn is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers.
He'll be taking a seat after starting each of the last three games in left field while recording four hits -- all singles -- across 10 at-bats. Leury Garcia will fill in for Vaughn, who has yet to hit his first MLB home run but is reaching base at a .356 clip this season.
Vaughn started in left field and went 1-for-2 in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Rangers.
Vaughn was replaced defensively in the seventh inning by Billy Hamilton, which could be the practice when the White Sox are involved in a close game. The move paid immediate dividends in the seventh when Hamilton's 95 mph throw cut down Willie Calhoun at the plate to preserve a 1-0 lead. Being subbed out cost Vaughn two plate appearances.
Vaughn is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox.
Vaughn will once again be on the bench against a right-handed starting pitcher (Nathan Eovaldi), opening up left field for Leury Garcia. The rookie had picked up starts in four of the White Sox's previous five games, so his playing time at least appears to be trending upward after he had been deployed in more of a part-time role in the first two weeks of the season.
Vaughn is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader at Boston.
Vaughn is 4-for-25 with 10 strikeouts to open the season and will take a seat for Sunday's matinee. Jake Lamb will receive the start in left field for the White Sox in Game 1.
Vaughn will start Wednesday and Thursday against Cleveland and should play quite a bit on the upcoming road trips to Boston and Cleveland, per manager Tony La Russa, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
He is riding the pine against righty Shane Bieber on Tuesday, and Logan Allen and Martin Perez are the only southpaws the White Sox project to face over the next week, so these comments suggest La Russa is going to give Vaughn some starts against righties. It'll be big for Vaughn's playing time outlook if he can perform over the next week, making it tougher for his skipper to keep him out of the lineup.
Vaughn is not in Tuesday's lineup against Cleveland.
Manager Tony La Russa will go with Nick Williams in left field with a righty (Shane Bieber) on the hill, as has been his wont. Considering that Williams has a 99 career wRC+ against righties and Vaughn is one of the game's top hitting prospects, this curious usage pattern has understandably drawn the ire of those who invested in the rookie in fantasy. For now, we should expect the 76-year-old skipper to stick to his guns.
Vaughn will sit Monday against Cleveland.
While the White Sox made the commendable decision to include Vaughn on their Opening Day roster instead of manipulating his service time, there's still been no indication that they intend to use him all that often. He's yet to start a single game as a designated hitter due to Yermin Mercedes' early-season tear. He's started five times in 10 games in left field, though he's made just a single start against a righty. He remains stuck on the short side of a platoon Monday, with Nick Williams getting the nod in his absence.
Vaughn will sit Thursday against the Royals.
The White Sox elected to include Vaughn on the Opening Day roster rather than manipulate his service time, but that evidently didn't mean they saw him as an everyday player. Yermin Mercedes' hot start has meant Vaughn hasn't made a single start as the designated hitter, and he's started just four of eight games in left field. Nick Williams will start in his place Thursday.
Vaughn entered Wednesday's game in the sixth inning after left fielder Billy Hamilton was removed due to a hamstring injury. He went 1-for-2 in an 8-4 loss to the Mariners.
The White Sox have been hit with a spate of injuries that have thinned the corps in left field, opening up at-bats for Vaughn as an outfielder and potentially giving him position eligibility there. Adam Engel (hamstring) was already on the injured list, and he's now been joined by shortstop Tim Anderson (hamstring), which means the multi-positional Leury Garcia will be needed in the infield. And now Hamilton is sidelined, although the severity of the injury is not known.
Vaughn isn't in the starting nine for Wednesday's game against the Mariners.
Vaughn recorded his first extra-base hit in the majors Tuesday and went 1-for-5 with one RBI, two walks and two strikeouts while starting the past two games. Billy Hamilton will start in left field while Zack Collins serves as the designated hitter Wednesday.
Vaughn went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks and a run scored in Tuesday's 10-4 win over the Mariners.
It was a night to remember for Vaughn, as he finally was able to connect on a fastball for a double in the right-centerfield gap for his first career major-league hit. The 22-year-old prospect made hard contact all night and showed discipline at the plate while drawing two walks. He also had a ball clank off his glove that was ruled a double, contributing to a three-run third inning for Seattle. It's possible he takes a seat Wednesday against right-hander Justin Dunn after starting in back-to-back games, but he definitely shook off some jitters after starting the season 0-for-9.
Vaughn will start Monday and Tuesday against left-handers, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Vaughn, who was held out of Sunday's series finale against the Angels, has started two of the first four games. One game facing a left-hander and one a right-hander. He may eventually settle into a primary role at DH, but the White Sox have rolled with the uber-hot Yermin Mercedes as designated hitter the last three games.
Vaughn is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels.
He'll be sitting for the second time in the four-game series while the White Sox hand a start to Billy Hamilton in left field and the hot-hitting Yermin Mercedes at designated hitter. Vaughn is still looking for his first hit after going 0-for-6 with a walk and three strikeouts over his first two big-league games.
Vaughn will make his major-league debut Friday against the Angels, batting fifth and playing left field, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Vaughn didn't do anything but sit back and watch on Opening Day, as the White Sox started Leury Garcia in left field and Zack Collins as the designated hitter. It's possible that he's stuck on the short side of a platoon in left to begin the year, as he'll start against the left-handed Andrew Heaney after the switch-hitting Garcia started against the right-handed Bundy, though it will take a few more games to determine whether or not that's the case.
Vaughn won't start Opening Day against the Angels on Thursday with Leury Garcia working in left field and Zack Collins batting eighth as the designated hitter, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
The White Sox recently announced the 22-year-old made the team's Opening Day roster, so it's a bit of a surprise the organization's top prospect won't be in the lineup Opening Day. Vaughn is expected to be in the starting nine as the designated hitter Friday with southpaw Andrew Heaney pitching for the Angels. Vaughn saw more work in left field during spring training and could see time there this season with Eloy Jimenez (pectoral) set to miss most of 2021.
The White Sox will select Vaughn's contract and include him on the Opening Day roster, as expected, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Rather than playing service-time games with Vaughn by stashing him at the alternate training site for the first few weeks of the season, the White Sox will add the 22-year-old prospect to the roster to ensure it has the best lineup possible heading into Opening Day. With Eloy Jimenez expected to miss most of the season with a pectoral injury, Vaughn has been given more work in left field late in spring training, despite the fact that he's spent the entirety of his professional career at first base. If the White Sox aren't comfortable using Vaughn in the outfield on an everyday basis, he'll still have a path to a regular lineup spot at designated hitter.
