Drafted in the 3rd round (84th overall) by the Boston Red Sox in 2003 (signed for $250,000)
Arizona State could have seven or eight pitchers drafted, but the odds were long at the start of the season that the 6-foot-4, 230-pound Vaughan would be the first. Having attended South Mountain (Ariz.) JC, Phoenix JC and New Orleans, he is at his fourth school in four years. He's been eligible for the draft each year but hasn't been selected after getting drafted out of high school. Vaughan has been used in a variety of roles at ASU and been effective, leading the team in wins and strikeouts. He has mechanical flaws in his delivery and needs to tighten up some moving parts, but he has three pitches that grade out as average or better: a 90-92 mph fastball, an 82-84 slider and a plus-plus changeup. He'll be a high pick on merit, and being a senior might bump him into the top two or three rounds.
