Seattle Mariners Add Versatile Left-Handed Bat

The Seattle Mariners have added to their infield depth, signing 29-year-old third baseman Jason Vosler to a minor league contract.

Vosler will likely be competing for a utility role if he's able to make the team, battling with the likes of Tommy La Stella, Dylan Moore and Sam Haggerty. 

Vosler was a 16th-round pick of the Chicago Cubs in 2014, but finally made it to the majors the past couple of seasons with the San Francisco Giants. He got in a total of 193 plate appearances over those two years, and registers as a league-average hitter with an OPS+ of 100 over that time. 

He's mostly seen time in the majors in a platoon role, as a left-handed hitter facing righties in a vast majority of his at-bats.

He's shown versatility in the field, where, although he's primarily a third basemen, he's played a handful of games at nearly every position on the diamond, save for catcher and center field.

He should provide good organizational depth for the M's, at the very least.
