Cory Vaughn Makes Baseball America’s Hot List
Mets prospect Cory Vaughn, who was selected in the 4th round of the 2010 draft, continues to impress while playing for the Brooklyn Cyclones. This week, Baseball America took note and included him on their Hot List.
Why He’s Here: .517/.545/1.270 (15-for-29), 1 HR, 3 2B, 8 RBIs, 4 R, 3 BB, 5 SO, 4-for-5 SB
The Scoop: The son of former big league slugger Greg Vaughn—he of 355 career home runs—Cory has launched his pro career in style after quickly signing as the Mets’ fourth-round pick. (At San Diego State, he was teammates with some Strasburg guy.) Vaughn is batting .326/.403/.620 through 129 at-bats, with a New York-Penn-leading nine home runs and 32 RBIs. And if he connects for seven more longballs this season, then Cory will match his father’s output during his pro debut. A 21-year-old Greg Vaughn hit 16 home runs in 1986 for Helena of the Rookie-level Pioneer League.
Vaughn is currently the league leader in home runs, RBI’s, slugging percentage (.614) and OPS (1.023).
