Royals to hold Eric Hosmer out Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/22/14) Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer will be held out of Wednesday's series finale against the White Sox, MLB.com reports.

"It's definitely better," manager Ned Yost said before Tuesday's game. "He wanted to try to push it today, but he still has some weakness in his hand."

Hosmer has an active 16-game hitting streak, but the team is looking to rest him for a few days in hopes that the hand injury doesn't linger. He has hit .272/.319/.385 with six home runs and 44 RBI in 397 at-bats.

Hand issue keeps Eric Hosmer out for second straight game
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/22/14) Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer missed his second start in a row Tuesday against the White Sox, as he deals with a hand injury. Hosmer suffered the injury Sunday, and is considered day to day at this point.
Eric Hosmer scratched with hand issue Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/14) Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer has been scratched from the starting lineup Monday due to his hand injury from Sunday, the Kansas City Star reports.

Hosmer is riding a 16-game hitting streak that dates back to June 30. He has hit .272/.319/.385 with six home runs and 44 RBI in 397 at-bats. Billy Butler will take over at first base Monday, with Salvador Perez serving as the designated hitter.

Eric Hosmer showing signs of a resurgence?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/15/14) So far, the first few months of 2014 have gone for Eric Hosmer about like the first few months of 2013 did: with him shaping up to be one of the biggest disappointments in Fantasy. It started out well enough with him hitting .301 in April, but as we waited for the power to show up, his batting average gradually sank to the .250 range.

Things have picked up in July, though. He has hit safely in all 12 of the Royals' games for the month, batting .426 (20 for 47) with two home runs. It's not enough to right every wrong, but it's a start. And it's especially encouraging given that he had a similar turnaround last season. It came a month earlier, but from June 1 to the end of the season, he hit .318 with 16 home runs and an .862 OPS -- elite numbers, basically.

The most encouraging part? He has seven walks to just four strikeouts so far in July. When at his best, he doesn't strike out much, which certainly wasn't the case in May, when he had 23 strikeouts to six walks, or June, when he had 24 strikeouts to six walks. Maybe he was as discouraged by the lack of power in April as everyone else and began trying a little too hard to correct it.

Whatever the case, I have a hunch he's in for a big second half. He's done it before, after all.

Eric Hosmer gearing up for another second-half run?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/15/14) Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer finally seems to be hitting his stride offensively. He's hit safely in 12 July games and carries a 13-game hitting streak into the second half.

Hosmer is batting .412 (21 for 51) with two home runs, five doubles, seven RBI, eight runs, eight walks and one stolen base during his hitting streak. His batting average has increased from .246 to .268 in his last 13 games.

This appears to be the time of year Hosmer heats up since he has a career .310/.367/.475/.842 slash line in July. His second-half career slash line is .293/.348/.442/.791. In the second half last season, Hosmer hit .323 with a .379 on-base percentage, .473 slugging percentage, .852 OPS, eight home runs, 16 doubles and 39 RBI in 69 games.
