The Chicago Cubs made Vitters the third overall pick in the 2007 draft, and while he's not yet lived up to expectations, the hope in Hopeland is that he'll develop 25-homer power soon, because Theo really needs someone to replace the departed Aramis Ramirez. He's not a perfect prospect, though: in addition to wishy-washy discipline (he strikes out four times as often as he walks), one cause for concern is that he might need to move from third base to left field, but if he continues to maintain his overall offensive numbers at higher levels of play, the Cubs will find room for him somewhere.

Josh Vitters, called up to the big club today, flew out in his first appearance, entering as a pinch hitter. He's very likely to remain with the club the rest of the season, as the Cubs brain trust decides whether he's really going to be a part of their new-look team.
