Cory Vaughn: The Right Fielding Future of the New York Mets


As Carlos Beltran continues to nurse a sore knee and Fernando Martinez, Lucas Duda and Kirk Nieuwenhuis keep getting reps out in right field, Cory Vaughn should be the long-term solution for the New York Mets vacant right field position in the future.

With so much negative publicity surrounding Mets ownership and their mediocre farm system, it’s nice to finally be able to talk about a shining prospect exceeding expectations.

Cory Vaughn is the son of former big leaguer Greg Vaughn who was known for his big bat back in the day.

Now, no one here is predicting that Cory will one day replicate his father’s 355 home runs and 1,072 runs batted in even though it’s more than possible, but as the saying goes, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Vaughn played his college ball at San Diego State University under the watchful eye of Mr. Consistency himself, Tony Gwynn.

If this isn’t an interesting amateur resume, then I don’t know what is.

A 2010 fourth round pick under former Mets GM Omar Minaya, Vaughn started his first year of professional ball at short-season Brooklyn of the New York Penn League.

While he benefited from the weak pitching of low-A ball, Vaughn also showed some serious upside by smacking 14 home runs in a park described as a place “where home runs go to die.”

In Brooklyn, Vaughn also produced a .307 batting average, .396 OBP, 14 doubles, five triples and 12 stolen bases.

While it’s still too early to call this kid a stud, if you compare his numbers to the 0 home runs, 17 RBI’s and .256 bating average that Ike Davis put up in his time at Brooklyn, it’s obvious he already has a leg up on the competition.
