Cincinnati Reds Sign Super Utility Infielder

Well, that didn't take long.

Just a few days after being released by the Seattle Mariners, the Cincinnati Reds have signed infielder Jason Vosler to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

It's quite possible that Vosler changed his mind after signing with the Mariners and requested a move. That would seem to make the most sense as the Mariners released Vosler just three days after signing him.

Regardless, Cincinnati is a much better opportunity for him, but he'll still have his work cut out for him if he wants to make the Opening Day roster. 

Vosler got into 36 games last season with the San Francisco Giants, slashing a solid .265/.342/.469 line, with four home runs, 12 RBIs, one stolen base and 14 runs scored.

The twenty-nine-year-old has the ability to play all four infield positions, as well as the corner outfield, which is very nice versatility.

For his major league career, Vosler holds a .228/.306/.421 triple-slash line, with seven home runs, 21 RBIs, three stolen bases and 26 runs scored over 77 games.

Vosler is a former 16th-round pick by the Chicago Cubs in the 2014 MLB Draft.
