Not even a week into his professional career, Cal baseball alumnus Andrew Vaughn is already moving on up the Chicago White Sox’s farm system.

Vaughn, the No. 3 pick in the 2019 MLB draft, was promoted to the Low-A Kannapolis Intimidators after just three games with the Arizona League White Sox, the club’s rookie-level affiliate.

In that trio of games, the 2018 Golden Spikes Award winner went on an absolute tear, slashing .600/.625/.933 (batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage) with two doubles, a homer and four RBI.

Vaughn had multiple hits in every game, and against the Arizona League Indians Blue, the first baseman went 4 for 5 with two doubles and a home run.

Should Vaughn hit well for the Intimidators, he may earn a promotion to the Winston-Salem Dash, the White Sox’s High-A affiliate, before the season’s end.
