Vaughn is the son of Greg Vaughn, the former major league slugger who hit 355 career home runs. The younger Vaughn first caught the attention of scouts at the 2006 Area Code Games, where he flashed a powerful arm and plus speed, in the 6.7-second range. Blessed with an Adonis body at 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, Corey got off to a blazing start in his freshman year at San Diego State, but since has been something of an underachiever. He often struggles with breaking pitches and stuff down and away, though he looked better late this spring and ran his numbers to .378/.454/.606 with nine homers. Vaughn shows hints of his terrific tools, with 15 steals in 16 tries, but his swing-and-miss tendencies hinder his raw power. He had 55 strikeouts in 188 at-bats this season and 180 in 592 at-bats for his career. Still, Vaughn does have an athletic big league frame, and his arm, speed and power, combined with his major league lineage, will no doubt prompt a team to take a chance.
