  • Cubs' Eric Hosmer: Contact hitter so far this spring

    Hosmer has gone 6-for-21 (.286) in Cactus League action so far, though five of those hits have been singles.

    Hosmer has one double and no home runs in spring training. The consistent contact has been encouraging, but the lack of power could last into the regular season, as the first baseman hit a career-low eight long balls last year in 104 games. Hosmer should see regular playing time for the Cubs, and he'll have some fantasy value if he maintains a high average, though fantasy managers will surely want to see an uptick in home runs.

  • Cubs' Eric Hosmer: Lands with Cubs

    Hosmer and the Cubs agreed to a contract Wednesday, Jesse Rogers of reports.

    The exact terms of Hosmer's deal with Chicago aren't clear, but the 33-year-old is presumably joining the Cubs on a short-term pact with the expectation that he settles in as the team's Opening Day first baseman. The addition of Hosmer could hurt top prospect Matt Mervis' chances of breaking camp with the big club, though Mervis could still be an option at the Cubs' unsettled designated-hitter spot. While splitting time between San Diego and Boston in 2022, Hosmer slashed a pedestrian .268/.334/.382 with a career-low eight home runs to go with 44 RBI and 38 runs.

  • Eric Hosmer: Officially released by Boston

    Hosmer was released by the Red Sox on Thursday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The 33-year-old was designated for assignment by the Red Sox last week and will now hit the open market. Hosmer appeared in 104 games last season between Boston and San Diego, and he had a .268/.334/.382 slash line with eight home runs, 44 RBI and 38 runs scored.

  • Red Sox's Eric Hosmer: Designated for assignment

    Hosmer was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Friday.

    The Red Sox were only on the hook for the veteran minimum portion of Hosmer's salary after acquiring him at the trade deadline from the Padres. However, they've ultimately decided his 40-man roster spot is best used on another player, and he'll presumably be released after clearing waivers. Hosmer has posted a .725 OPS with 20 home runs over the last two seasons. With Hosmer out of the picture, Triston Casas has a clear path to the first base job.

  • Red Sox's Eric Hosmer: Opting in

    Hosmer opted into the final three years and $39 million of his contract Tuesday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

    Hosmer signed an eight-year deal with the Padres prior to the 2018 season. While the contract allowed him to return to the open market after five years, his downturn in performance means that wouldn't be a wise move. Since signing the contract, he's hit .265/.325/.409. That's good for a league-average 100 wRC+, a mark that isn't good enough for a starting first baseman.
