11/2 Carpenter, Vitters named to AFL Stars Game
Cubs prospects Chris Carpenter and Josh Vitters will play for the East Division squad Saturday in the Arizona Fall League Rising Stars Game. The game will be played at Surprise Stadium and televised by the MLB Network. Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro played in the game last year. Carpenter, a right-handed pitcher, and Vitters, a third baseman, are playing for the Mesa Solar Sox. Carpenter was a third-round pick in 2008, while Vitters was the No. 1 pick in 2007.
