Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer indicated Tuesday that prospect third baseman Josh Vitters is likely to be called up from Triple-A Iowa in the near future.
Vitters, who turns 23 later this month, is hitting .296/.349/.496 with 15 home runs, 63 RBI and an .846 OPS in 106 games this season at the Triple-A level. There are serious questions about his plate discipline, but he should get a look as the Cubs evaluate their internal options for 2013. He might be worth a stash in NL-only formats.
question. who comes up first? Josh Vitters for the Cubs or Jedd Gyorko for the Padres. now that Headley is not going anywhere, it's unlikely Gyorko comes up before September right?
I've been stashing Gyorko in a 16 team league with only Chris Davis at 3B. thinking about dropping Gyorko for Vitters, probably the smart move.
