White Sox ''Very Bullish'' On Former Top Prospect To Fill Jose Abreu's Void

They lost a massive player to the Houston Astros in Jose Abreu.

However, the Chicago White Sox don't see first base as a position of need for the team right now as they are very ''bullish'' on Andrew Vaughn taking over as the starter in the position.
Those are the words of White Sox general manager Rick Hahn as he spoke to reporters in the wake of slugger and former MVP Jose Abreu leaving for the Astros. The team clearly has confidence in Vaughn's potential and his ability to fill the shoes of Abreu at first base.

The former top prospect has certainly shown flashes of his potential, but has slashed a middling .255/.315/.414 line, with 32 home runs, 124 RBIs and 116 runs scored across 261 games played. 

This past season, however, the twenty-four-year-old looked good, posting a .271/.321/.429 triple-slash line, with 17 home runs, 76 RBIs and 60 runs scored across 134 games. Vaughn is the former third-overall pick in the 2019 MLB Draft.
