That's what I'd like to see as well. I could also be fine with him not making an appearance until next year, or being traded.
That's what I was thinking as well, Luke. Bring him up in September for a little taste, then look for him some time in 2013 if he continues to progress.
I guess I'm OK with everything, except calling him up right now.

Although he is better than anything the Cubs have shown us this year I sure hope we see something better in the near future. .217 Average 250 OBP 728OPS is not exciting me out of the third base position.
Personally, I'm liking the heck out of Vilabuena... I wouldn't mind if Stewart were out for a while... (sorry Ian)

I'm not sure I completely buy into that. Unless they are able to find their perfect third base prospect somewhere else, I don't think the front office would dump a potential upgrade because of a few flaws. Not yet, anyway. Besides, if Vitters has success at the major league level for a season or two his trade value might even go up.
I don't think he's on any kind of 'almost untouchable' list, but I doubt he's actively being shopped either.

I suggested in another thread that adding Vitters could help to pry Castelannos from Detroit in a Garza trade.
