Eric Hosmer has a $147 million offer from the Royals

12 January 2018

It seems that Hosmer also has been offered a seven-year deal by the Padres for $140 million, which makes it $1 million less than the deal from the Royals.

Eric Hosmer has always hit a ton of ground balls.

The St. Louis Cardinals could also be in the mix for Hosmer. This morning's Royals rumors are coming from Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

According to a report from USA Today, the Kansas City Royals have offered their free agent first baseman a franchise-record seven-year deal worth $147 million.

He spent his first seven years of his Major League Baseball career with the Kansas City Royals. If the Royals were to trade Duffy, not re-sign Lorenzo Cain, Mike Moustakas, Alicides Escobar, or Jason Vargas, then the message is not that they are trying to win now and signing Hosmer to a large contract probably wouldn't be in the best interest of the team. He could be waiting to see if other suitors emerge. Someone should sign Hosmer, and for a considerable amount of money, but are the Royals the team to do it? However, as we have seen with the new regime in Miami, completely rebuilding by trading away all a team's top players is not good for team morale or maintaining a strong fan base either.

Hosmer has said to have been wanting at least an eight or nine-year deal.

Yet the market for Hosmer, a Gold Glove first baseman with a World Series ring, has been slow to develop after the Boston Red Sox appeared to pass. Fox Sports Kansas City was recently bought by Disney.

The Royals are competing with the San Diego Padres, per the report, and might have to add a year or two to the deal to secure the left-handed bat.
