Vosler was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.
The 27-year-old has been on the big-league roster since early June and hit well during this stint in the majors with a .905 OPS, but the returns of Alex Dickerson and (back) and Darin Ruf (hamstring) from the injured list necessiated some roster moves. Vosler should receive another chance in the majors later in the season when the Giants require infield depth.
Vosler went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a stolen base in Monday's 5-2 win over Arizona.
The 27-year-old was intentionally walked with two outs in the fifth inning, then stole second base. He added a double in the second. Vosler is slashing only .195/.250/.488, but he's provided three home runs, four RBI, seven runs scored and two stolen bases across 44 plate appearances. He's likely to split time with Wilmer Flores at third base while Evan Longoria (shoulder) is on the mend.
Vosler went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Rangers.
He got the scoring going in the fifth inning when he pulled a Kyle Gibson cutter off the right-field foul pole. Vosler, who was later pinch-hit for by Mauricio Dubon, has provided some nice pop in his limited opportunities this season, as he now has three homers in 32 at-bats.
Vosler hit a solo home run in his only at-bat in Friday's 8-5 win over the Cubs.
Vosler hit for relief pitcher Dominic Leone in Friday's bullpen game, and he smashed his second home of the season to center field. The 27-year-old infielder has been a bench option for much of his limited big-league time. He's added three RBI, five runs scored and a stolen base in 25 plate appearances.
Vosler was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
The 27-year-old was sent down over the weekend, but he'll quickly rejoin the major-league roster with Mike Yastrzemski (thumb) landing on the injured list. Vosler will provide corner infield depth with Brandon Belt (oblique) and Darin Ruf (hamstring) on the injured list while Evan Longoria (side) is also banged up.
Vosler was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.
Vosler appeared in each of the last three games since joining the major-league roster Wednesday, and he went 1-for-8 with a solo home run and three strikeouts. Wilmer Flores (hamstring) and Logan Webb (shoulder) were reinstated from the 10-day injured list as part of the transaction.
Vosler homered in his only plate appearance Wednesday against Arizona.
The rookie pinch ran for Darin Ruf in the sixth frame and subsequently stayed in the game to play first base. He got an opportunity to hit in a tie game in the eighth inning, and Vosler came through with a solo shot to right field that provided the winning run. The long ball was Vosler's first as a major-leaguer and only his third hit overall. The 27-year-old has some pop, having hit 20-plus homers in the minors during each season between 2017 and 2019.
The Giants recalled Vosler to the big-league roster Wednesday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
The 2014 draft pick will fill the roster spot of Brandon Belt (oblique), who is expected to spend up to two weeks on the injured list. Vosler has two hits in 14 big-league at-bats this season and has hit .200 at Triple-A.
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.
