|2019-09-27 12:00:00 (link to chat)||How far is the offensive drop-off from the 2019 June Draft after Adley Rutschman, Andrew Vaughn, and Bobby Witt,Jr? Who are some other players from this draft worth keeping an eye on for their plate approaches? |
(Ron from Texarkana)
|Honestly the next three bats are all at least interesting, with Abrams having the scorching pro start. Good reports on Josh Jung as well. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|
|2019-09-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)||A few months ago, this site rated Andrew Vaughn the best dynasty prospect in the 2019 draft class. Now that we have at least a little pro data on most of these guys, does that assessment change 3 months later?|
(Tim from NJ)
|Again, I don't want to speak for Bret and Ben, but I don't feel dinging him for a just okay couple pro months at the end of a long year is necessarily warranted. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|
|2019-08-23 15:30:00 (link to chat)||Thanks for doing the baseball chat and putting your personal spin on things.
Looking to fill up my last minors spot in a 5-yr, roto keeper league. Who would you grab: Andrew Vaughn or Dylan Carlson? Who is more likely to have a significant impact next season?|
(Not-Yuri from Not-Israel)
That's a tough call. I think I'd take Carlson who can tally some stolen bases but there's no bad choice. I'd expect Carlson to arrive before Vaughn. (Craig Goldstein)
|2019-08-23 15:30:00 (link to chat)||To the guy asking if he should pick up Andrew Vaughn or Dylan Carlson: seems like a weak, uncompetitive league if those guys are widely available. Are there any openings? Asking for Mark Barry, who needs a league he can compete in.|
(Carl from San Antonio)
|Here's the deal, Carl: As JP explained Mark took over a bad roster. Also, it's an industry league where someone has to finish in each spot. You don't have to listen to TINO if you don't like it. I'm not sure what bitching about it to every chatter at BP accomplishes for you. (Craig Goldstein)|
|2019-08-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)||Three sluggers in lower minors:
George Valera, Andrew Vaughn, Triston Casas.
Who will have the best career, assuming no injuries or asteroid collisions?
(Stir-Crazy in Storrs from CT)
|I'd assume Vaughn will slot in a fair bit ahead of Valera on our 2020 101. That's on the strength of the floor/safety though, you could certainly argue Valera has more upside with the bat. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|
|2019-07-31 12:00:00 (link to chat)||Andrew Vaughn, Triston Casas, George Valera:
three young hitters in the lower minors.
Who has the highest ceiling? Who can reach his ceiling?
ps Gooseberries under-rated. We grow them and raspberries. Mixing the two in jam, baking or syrup for yogurt or ice cream: high ceiling, high floor. |
(CyMature from Cooperstown Rest Home)
|Valera, Vaughn, Casas for me if you're talking real life and not fantasy and purely ceiling. Vaughn probably has the lowest gap between ceiling and current state just because his flaws aren't going anywhere and he really just has to hit (like hell) to do it. (Craig Goldstein)|
|2019-06-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Dynasty Q: Votto, Eaton, Kahnle, Vargas (plus Bo Naylor, Erik swanson, and Will Banfield) for LeMahieu (and Andrew Vaughn). I need a 2B and the larger collection of players are riding my bench. Fair or massive overpay?|
(Stringer from Baltimore)
|If the man comin', make ready for the man.
I would've said it was a *slight* overpay if Vaughn weren't involved. He's the best prospect in the deal by a significant margin, so if you're in the market for 2B I think this is a pretty solid move. (Mark Barry)
|2019-06-05 21:00:00 (link to chat)||Do you ever go back and undertake an exercise whereby you review your previous "too early" post-draft dynasty rankings and compare them to your end-of-year/start of year prospect rankings, to see whether there are any trends (e.g. guys with a certain skill set perform better/worse initially in pro ball, general under/over ranks, etc.)?|
(AJ from Boston)
|I do this every year and it's a great exercise that helps me hopefully get a little better at making these initial lists in future seasons. The toughest thing about doing it this early isn't that you don't know the skills of the player (you really don't learn that much from their brief tastes of pro ball), it's that you don't know how quickly the team is going to move them. Take Andrew Vaughn for example, my guess is that he ends up in High-A relatively quickly after signing, but if the White Sox end up keeping him in short season ball for the full year, it has an effect on his ETA whether he's beating up on those pitchers or not. In terms of trends, it's generally the prep bats/arms who we don't quite have as much information on that move most sharply. Someone like Keoni Cavaco could easily be in the top-10 after his pro debut, or he could fall back into the late teens because everything is notable when you're dealing with a short track record.

|2019-06-05 21:00:00 (link to chat)||Now that you’ve reached cloud nine with vogelbach. Who is the next beefy boy that you’re excited about?|
(Chansen8895 from San Jose )
|Unfortunately it's a pretty bad time for beefy boys in the minors, but I am very much rooting for Andrew Vaughn to both hit and let his body go a little bit. (Mr. President Bret Sayre)|
|2019-06-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)||Where would (whoever the White Sox draft at No. 3) rank in their system right now?|
(Collin from Austin)
|Now that we know the pick is Andrew Vaughn... He slots into a deep system that will see Eloy graduate soon. Definitely no lower than 5, probably top 3, could make a case to be #1 over Madrigal (Keanan Lamb)|
|2019-06-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)||Saying a certain draftee is the next big thing seems to be overused these days. How can we be certain Andrew Vaughn, the "best hitter in college baseball" will be a surefire big-league success?|
(Geoffrey from Lombard, IL)
|Those who make those kind of grand predictions are doing so just to feed the hot take machine. I wouldn't classify anyone in this draft as "the next best thing" even though some had Adley as the best draft prospect since Bryce Harper. There is a lot of talent, but a lot of risk, with all of the players selected tonight. (Keanan Lamb)|
|2019-05-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)||What are your thoughts on Andrew Vaughn?|
(Lou Seal from San Fran)
|They type of monster bat that could justify a top 5 selection despite the positional limitations. (Craig Goldstein)|
|2019-05-24 15:00:00 (link to chat)||Who's the more likely #1 pick in dynasty drafts next spring: Adley Rutschman or Andrew Vaughn?|
(Rob from Alaska)
|There's no wrong answer, but hoo boy I just checked out Rutschman's year at OSU, and I just don't know how you make any other argument right now. Kinda like the Trout/Betts debates for #1 overall this year: there's absolutely nothing wrong with #2, and yet any argument against the obvious #1 is just trying too hard. (Jon Hegglund)|
|2019-03-04 16:00:00 (link to chat)||Andrew Vaughn looks like he has the whole Kris Bryant 'dominant college hitter' mold. When he gets drafted this summer, do you think he has a quick rise up the MiLB ladder? The bat seems incredibly advanced.|
(Pleebac Jones from NY)
|The R/R 1B profile will put big pressure on the power tool, but he should certainly hit at the next level. He'll move up as quickly as he is able to get to consistent game power in the pros. (Scott Delp)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
