Vosler was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
The 27-year-old will head to the minors with Johnny Cueto (lat) returning from the injured list Sunday. Vosler has appeared in eight games this season and is 2-for-14 with one RBI and three runs.
The Giants recalled Vosler from their alternate training site Tuesday.
He was summoned to replace Tommy La Stella (hamstring), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Like La Stella, Vosler is a left-handed hitter capable of playing both corner-infield spots, but the Giants are unlikely to view the 27-year-old as much more than a depth piece while he's up with the big club. Wilmer Flores and Mauricio Dubon are likelier candidates to pick up starts while La Stella is on the mend.
Vosler was optioned to the Giants' alternate training site Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Vosler spent just under a week on the major-league roster and went 2-for-8 with a double, two runs, one RBI and a stolen base in four games. Steven Duggar was recalled in a corresponding move.
Vosler went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Marlins.
Vosler entered the game to begin the third inning after Wilmer Flores had to leave early because he was feeling under the weather. The 27-year-old had just been recalled to the Giants on Saturday and was able to notch his first career hit and a stolen base in Sunday's winning effort. Vosler's time on the big-league roster will likely depend on the health of other players, as Evan Longoria (hamstring) and Brandon Crawford (quadriceps) are day-to-day while Donovan Solano (calf) was put on the 10-day injured list earlier in the week.
Vosler was recalled by the Giants on Saturday.
Vosler hit well with the club throughout spring training but failed to make the team due to its plentiful infield depth. However, regulars such as Evan Longoria (hamstring), Donovan Solano (calf) and Brandon Crawford (quadriceps) are currently sidelined, leaving the team depleted. That will give Vosler the chance to make his major-league debut, and he should draw the majority of his work at second and third base.
Vosler was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.
The 27-year-old inked a major-league deal with the Giants in November and had a .311/.333/.444 slash line with two home runs and 14 strikeouts in 45 at-bats during spring training, but it wasn't enough to earn a roster spot. Vosler should be in the mix for a promotion when the Giants need infield depth this season.
Vosler signed a major-league deal with the Giants on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old spent the shortened season at the Padres' alternate training site and had a .291/.367/.523 slash line with 20 home runs and 63 RBI in 116 games at Triple-A in 2019. Vosler has yet to make his major-league debut, but he's now on the 40-man roster and would seem to stand a strong chance of cracking San Francisco's Opening Day roster next year.
Vosler joined the Padres' 60-man player pool Sunday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Vosler enjoyed a strong season at Triple-A El Paso in 2019, slashing .291/.367/.523 with 20 home runs and 63 RBI. The 26-year-old is not on the Padres' 40-man roster, so he's a long shot to see any big-league playing time this season.
Vosler was traded from the Cubs to the Padres on Tuesday in exchange for Rowan Wick, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Vosler split time between Double-A Tennessee and Triple-A Iowa in 2018, posting a combined .251/.330/.467 line with 23 homers and 29 doubles across 129 games with both teams. The 25-year-old will likely fill an organizational depth role in 2019.
Vosler led Double-A Tennessee with 21 home runs and 81 RBI this season.
Vosler played 129 games for the Smokies and slashed .241/.343/.429. With the trades of Jeimer Candelario and Eloy Jimenez this season, Vosler has moved into the discussion as one of the Cubs' top-10 hitting prospects. The 23-year-old is blocked by Kris Bryant at third, so a position change may be necessary to make it to the big leagues, at least without switching organizations.
Vosler, 23, is batting .259/.361/.439 with 15 home runs and 66 RBI through 104 games for Double-A Tennessee.
With the trade of Jeimer Candelario, among other moves, Vosler has entered the conversation in terms of hitting prospects for the Cubbies. With Kris Bryant entrenched at third, it is doubtful Vosler ever seizes the job at the hot corner in Chicago, though he could become trade bait or move to the outfield if necessary.
