      Boston still backing Vitek

      Baseball America reports Red Sox officials said prospect Kolbrin Vitek had a better 2011 season than his numbers displayed. Vitek hit just .281 with three homers, but he had a sound approach at the plate and made significant strides defensively. He also finished with a .350 OBP for Class A Salem. "I would anticipate him hitting the ground running this year," Boston farm director Ben Crockett said. "He shows bat speed and the ability to manage an at-bat and be a solid hitter with the ability to drive the ball into the gaps. He has a natural line-drive stroke. He's not a guy who has a lot of loft in his swing who hits long high fly balls."
