Vitters in the AFL


Just a quick post here before I head off to work. Josh Vitters made the "AFL Rising Stars" roster this year and will play in the Saturday All-Star game this year. While he didn't lite the world on fire he had a pretty solid showing considering he had been laid off since July. .255/.311/.436 triple slash line isn't wowing anyone but like I said considering the layoff and rust not bad. He did hit 2 HR and 4 2B with 11 RBI. 

Also very encouraging was his 5 BB (9%) in 55 ABs. Also K'd just 6 times (10.9%). To be noted the AFL is usually weak on top pitching prospects as opposed to the elite hitting that is usually sent. Maybe the most encouraging thing I kept reading was how good he looked defensively. I seen numerous scouts say that he looked pretty solid and comfortable at 3B.

* Also to be noted Chris Carpenter also made the "AFL Rising Stars" roster.
