MLB Trade Rumors: White Sox Slugger Listed As Prime Trade Candidate

Andrew Vaughn has emerged as a prime trade candidate for the Chicago White Sox as the team navigates another challenging season, according to insider Mark Feinsand

Over his first three years in the majors, Vaughn showcased his potential by averaging 18 home runs, 68 RBIs, and a .735 OPS per season, as noted by Feinsand. 

However, the 2024 season has been his toughest yet, with seven home runs, 23 RBIs, and a .650 OPS in 57 games. This dip in performance has coincided with the White Sox holding the worst record in baseball, prompting the organization to consider a rebuild.

Despite his current struggles, Vaughn's proven ability to produce at the major league level makes him an attractive target for teams in need of affordable power. 

Earning $3.25 million this season and with two more years of arbitration eligibility, he offers both immediate and future value. 

A trade could provide Vaughn with a fresh start and the opportunity to contribute to a contending team, potentially revitalizing his career. 

For the White Sox, moving Vaughn could bring in young talent to aid their long-term plans, making this a mutually beneficial move for both parties.

Over his four-year career, the 26-year-old holds a .251/.310/.413 triple-slash line, with 60 home runs, 227 RBIs, two stolen bases, and 206 runs scored across 476 games played.
