Eric Hosmer signs 8-year deal with Padres, per reports
The San Diego Padres are optimistic in the free agent being signed by them to a contract that revived talks with Eric Hosmer will result. The 28-year-old righty has been dogged by injuries throughout his six-year career, but finally managed to piece together a full season on the mound in back-to-back stints with the Rays and Mariners in 2017. He'll slot into the middle of the order for skipper Andy Green, pairing with slugger Wil Myers for a rebuilding Padres club.
Davis, 37, had signed with Oakland as a free agent before a year ago and was traded in midseason to Boston.
Hosmer was drafted 3rd overall by the Kansas City Royals in 2008. He set personal bests in average, OPS, and slugging percentage.
Hosmer, an All-Star first baseman in 2016 who has won two Gold Glove awards, is coming off his third straight season with at least 18 home runs and 93 RBIs.
