Eric Hosmer benched Wednesday against Chris Sale


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Royals first baeman Eric Hosmer is sitting Wednesday against White Sox ace left-hander Chris Sale as Billy Butler is taking his place.

Hosmer is 6 for 28 against Sale in his career and has just eight homers in 462 at-bats on the season.


Eric Hosmer showing some life again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/16/2014) Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer went 1 for 3 with a double, a walk and a run scored Monday against the White Sox, which was enough to earn him a mention in my latest blog post chronicling the major happenings in Monday's games.

It doesn't seem like much on its own, but with that performance, he's now batting .321 (9 for 28) with two homers and a 1.049 OPS in his last eight games. Whoop-ti-do.

After the way his season has gone, he'd have to do something Herculean to convince us to draft him as a top 10 first baseman again next year. I'm talking a Ryan Zimmerman-in-2013-type correction so complete that we forget he was having a down year before it, as in a .380 batting average or so and half a dozen home runs. Real craziness.

But as we watch it all unfold, I think it's worth reminding everyone he's only 24. We probably have at least another five years of overreacting to every hot streak, wondering if it's a harbinger of more. And I remain convinced, given his pedigree and those stretches every other year when he appears oh so studly, that one day it will be.

Here's hoping he doesn't have that Herculean finish so we can get him for dirt cheap next year.

Eric Hosmer likely out 3-4 weeks


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer had to be placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a fractured third metacarpal on his right hand, an injury he aggravated Thursday on a checked swing. Fortunately, as manager Ned Yost told MLB.com Friday, Hosmer's injury could have been worse.

"It's a non-displaced stress fracture," Royals manager Ned Yost said Friday. "That means it doesn't need to be casted, doesn't need surgery; just needs time to heal. He's a pretty quick healer, but it's probably going to be a 3-4 week ordeal."

Hosmer will continue to travel with the team while receiving treatment, and it is not yet clear if he will require a minor-league rehab assignment once the injury heals.

"When we get there, we'll figure that out," Yost said. "For now, we just want to get him healed up."
