Josh Vitters

Josh Vitters was the Cubs first round pick (3rd overall) in the 2007 draft and was a Baseball America Top 100 Prospect for the next couple of years. He worked his way up the ranks and even cracked the Majors in an August call up in 2012 after making the Pacific coast League (AAA) All-Star team.

Unfortunately, he had at least three different stints on the disabled list in 2013 and only got into 28 games all season. It seems that this season, while Vitters has played parts or all of 18 games at third base, the Cubs are transitioning Vitters to the outfield where he has played 43 games in left field. With Kris Bryant slugging his way through the minors, that is probably a smart move for Vitters.

This card was signed in Spring Training this year.
