BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 The question surrounding Vitek is just what is he supposed to be? He doesn't have a real defensive home, and his bat hasn't shown enough yet to make us not worry about that. Of course, he is just 22, and has all of 815 plate professional plate appearances to his credit. Dropping his punchout rate by five percent despite a promotion is a start, but a sub-.100 ISO for a third baseman without a glove is worrisome, especially one whose approach was supposedly as advanced as Vitek's. He's a prospect because he still projects to have better power as he fills out. He's going to need it, because given his defensive play at the hot corner, left field is calling.
2011 Vitek was Boston's first choice in the 2010 draft, and while he could be considered a steal as the 20th overall selection—San Diego considered taking him with the ninth pick—it's unclear just what Vitek is supposed to become. He has no true defensive home, so his bat is going to have to carry him wherever he plays. He can drive the ball, as evidenced by his 24 extra-base hits in 244 at-bats, and he has loads of patience despite his youth. Vitek will need to cut down on his punchouts to keep his average up, but if he does, Boston won't be too worried about his glove.
