Cubs | Josh Vitters to see increased playing time

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum said 3B Josh Vitters will see increased playing time in the near future. He has been on the team's 25-man roster for eight games but only been in the starting lineup for three of them. "I think after today he'll probably play all three games against Houston and then we'll kind of see after that," Sveum said Sunday, Aug. 12. "At least the first two he'll probably play. It's going to start gradually." Sveum said a combination of matchups and putting Vitters into situations where he could excel were reasons why he hadn't seen more playing time to date.
