The Chicago Cubs top prospect 3rd baseman Josh Vitters is slated to play for the Mesa Solar Sox in the Arizona Fall League which starts this week.  Because of a hand injury, Vitters played on 70 games for Class A Peoria and Class Double A Daytona in 2009.  Vitters had a combined batting average of .316 during the season.  Vitters was the Cubs top draft pick in the 2007 MLB Draft and he remains the top prospect in the Cubs minor league system.  Vitters also remains on the radar screen of general managers all across baseball, so GM Jim Hendry and Manager Lou Pinella are in the mood to make a blockbuster trade this off-season, rumors will certainly swirl about Vitters being included in the deal.

When you purchase Cubs tickets at Wrigley Field for future Chicago Cubs MLB games, you could end up seeing Vitters or one of the Cubs other top prospects at the Friendly Confines…
