Keith Law said in a lengthy discussion that Chicago Cubs youngster Josh Vitters is the 14th best prospect in baseball, effectively making him quite awesome.
Well, Baseball America doesn’t think of him quite so highly, but they still think he’s awesome. They’ve got him ranked the 51st prospect in baseball, and have this pithy remark:
85: Hits last season, third-most in the Northwest League.
They expect him to arrive to the big club by next year, for what it’s worth. The only other Cub on their top 100 is Jeff Samardzija, who checks in at number 79.
