Brett Jackson, Josh Vitters won't be promoted to majors
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Cubs don't plan to promote prospects Brett Jackson and Josh Vitters, according to MLB.com. Both players were September call-ups in 2012.

"We don't have the young kids who are coming up like last year with Brett Jackson and Vitters," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said, per MLB.com. "This year, we have some older guys, some left-handed bats who are obviously in the mix for next year and we want to look at and evaluate."

Jackson and Vitters have both battled injuries and have struggled in the minors this season. Their futures will the club remain in flux.

"Things have changed a great deal with them missing so much time this year," Sveum said. "The player-development part of this year has been pretty much lost for both of them. It'll be a wait-and-see thing this winter."
