Where did he come from

Jason Vosler, who is from New York, was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 16th round of the 2014 MLB Draft out of Northeastern University

In that 2014 season he hit .266/.361 in Low-A with 1 home run in 94 at-bats.

The next season he played 107 games between Single-A and High-A and hit .238/.323 with 10 home runs.

In 2016 he hit .254/.325 with 2 home runs in High-A before being called up to Double-A where he hit .250/.314 with 1 home run in 92 at-bats.

The power picked up in 2017 when he hit 21 home runs in Double-A for the Cubs over 452 at-bats with a .241 average.

They sent him to the Arizona Fall League that year and he hit just .210/.323 with 2 home runs in 81 at-bats.

He split the 2018 season between Double-A and Triple-a and hit .251/.330 with 23 home runs in 471 at-bats.

In November of 2018, the Padres traded right-handed pitcher Rowan Wick to the Cubs for Vosler.

This past season in Triple-A El Paso with the Padres he hit .291/.367 with 20 home runs in 375 at-bats.

Vosler was left unprotected in this offseason’s Rule 5 Draft but went undrafted. Some teams may regret not taking a chance on him.
