I got Draft Kings to add Vaughn LOL.. They added him at +3000.. Quickly dropped to +1500. Lucky i got in at +3000

Can you ask them to add Rodon to AL Cy Young candidates?  Imagine you'd get crazy odds.  I'd put a buck on that.

I have a feeling Vaughn isn't gonna have the typical rookie slump, it seems like his bat to ball skill is very polished from everything I've read and seen

still think it's a huge oversight to put him at a new position

If you want what's best for the team the only way to make up for the Eloy loss is to have him in LF and Yermin and Collins get DH AB's. Hopefully in the 5/6 months Eloy is gone they can muster up a decent OBP between them all and around 10+ HR's.

I'm not at all worried about Vaughn long term and even short term but I don't quite understand why he was brought up on opening day. He murdered the first two weeks of spring but the last two weeks when pitchers noticed that the better pitch him away he was just OK and didn't do that much damage and strikeouts increased too. 

That is no knock on him, he barely has any high minors experience and only had simulated at bats last year but the way yermin and collins had been hitting they could have easily taken that extra year of control. 

I think he will adjust this year already and be OK but I'm not sure if he is already dominant enough to absolutely need him in the lineup. 

Maybe if yermin keeps hitting and he has not turned it around by end of April send him down a month to triple A to get the extra year. 

I still think he will be OK and get his first hit soon but I think currently his power is mostly on the inside of the plate and he is a bit challenged away. In college and the minors he could just wait for his pitch but in mlb pitchers can throw away consistently and I think until he improves that he is more of a. 275 with 20 Homers guy who occasionally destroys a mistake. 

But if he improves on driving the outside pitch too he can be really dangerous and be a 30+ Homer hitter.

I hope Engel returns soon. There isn't any good option out there now, and no, Vaughn is not an adequate  LFer. He can shag routine fly balls but that doesn't mean he will make the more difficult plays that are expected of a major league outfielder.

He can’t be any worse than Eloy. Truthfully.

Hope he gets going soon, looks a little lost at the plate.

Vaughn and Mercedes are combined 12 for 27. You gotta love the rookies.

I agree that he would be vastly inferior to Engel in the field but he needs experience in the field because he is gonna have to hold down that spot until Jose retires, even if he sort of sucks at it, since Eloy's bat is too important to risk ever putting him in the field again.

I missed the game thread discussion re: TLR sitting Vaughn, but does it remind anyone of how Ozzie had random beef with Viciedo?

Nick Williams?

Vaughn should be playing everyday in LF, sure take him out late because you want a defensive replacement but I think this bullshit could be bad for his development.

22 for 56, down a little but still a sizzling .393 average. Now with a defensive gem and a post game, dugout sprint highlight to throw in.

Lol why are you combing them and saying it’s “sizzling” as if Vaughn isn’t struggling and hitting .167? Don’t get me wrong, it’s very early and I still have plenty of faith in Vaughn...just a very strange way to try and frame it
