We take a look at San Diego Padres infielder Jason Vosler — who is off to a great spring training — and if he could possibly make the roster.
The San Diego Padres are just 10 games into the spring training schedule, and while results don’t matter here, it’s nice to see them with an 8-1 record.
Right now the pitching staff is dominating hitters in spring training with a league-leading ERA of 2.81.
But on the offensive side, one of the biggest standouts thus far is corner infielder Jason Vosler.
He’s played in seven games through March 2 and has 7 hits in 13 at-bats, including 2 doubles and a home run.
The 26-year-old left-handed hitter has also scored 4 runs with 5 RBI, 3 walks, just 2 strikeouts, and he even has a stolen base.
Vosler has spent most of his time at first base this Spring with one appearance at third and another in the DH spot.
Most of his work has come off the bench late in games, but he has started two games at first base and went 4-for-7 with a home combined in those two starts going up against big league pitchers.
He’s currently tied for the team-lead in hits with the fourth most at-bats, and he has the most RBI of any Padres hitter.
Obviously it’s early, but that’s what this time of the year is for — optimism.
Vosler is off to a great start and it’s catching the eyes of a lot of people. Let’s look at the history of Vosler and what his future outlook could be with the Padres.
