Star First Baseman Eric Hosmer Signs With New Team

Padres Optimistic In Pursuit Of Eric Hosmer

According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune and Jon Morosi of MLB.com, Eric Hosmer has agreed to an eight-year contract with the San Diego Padres.

But by adding Hosmer on a reported eight-year, $144 million contract that is front-loaded through the first five seasons, the Padres have placed a bet on his intangibles by offering him the richest deal in their history.

Hosmer hit career high.318 last season with 25 home runs for the Royals.

Hosmer played a key role in helping the Royals reach the World Series in both 2014 and 2015, with the latter trip resulting in a championship.


Nunez gets a guaranteed $6 million, according to multiple reports, including $4 million this season and a $2 million buyout.

Throughout the quiet months on the free-agent market this winter, agent Scott Boras - who represents Hosmer - and the Royals harped on Hosmer's leadership skills. The next year, Hosmer would win his second Gold Glove.

Two years later, Hosmer returned to Petco Park as the American League's starting first baseman in the 2016 All-Star Game.

MLB All-Time saves (601) leader Trevor Hoffman walks with his family into the infield jersey retirement ceremony held by the San Diego Padres prior to the game against the Florida Marlins at Petco Park on August 21, 2011 in San Diego, California. He may not be J.D. Martinez but Hosmer is loved around the baseball world for his leadership and intangibles. In 100 games last season, Cron hit.248 with 16 homers and 56 RBIs.
