Royals have made seven-year, $147 million offer to Eric Hosmer

Fantasy Baseball Breaking News

Things are starting to pick up for him, however, as the Padres apparently offered him a seven-year deal, and now it's being reported by Bob Nightengale that the Royals have their own seven-year offer out there, for $147 million.

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. For a small market team like the Royals or Padres, signing him to a seven-year deal could potentially make life hard down the road when trying to build a complete roster.

Big moves in the Major League Baseball offseason, with a couple of notable exceptions, have come to a screeching halt since the Winter Meetings, but first baseman Eric Hosmer could be one of the next pieces off the board.

However, a deal for free-agent first baseman Eric Hosmer may be gaining traction. Baseball folks see a franchise type player thanks to Hosmer's leadership, his athleticism, and his all-around play. Maybe! The Royals and Padres sure seem willing to do so. The calculus appeared simple: While Moustakas, 29, and Cain, 31, have also been at the centre of uncertain markets this winter, the Royals see Hosmer, 28, as a safer long-term investment, a cornerstone player who can serve a front-facing role in the clubhouse and potentially remain productive until the club is ready to contend again in 2022 or beyond. Another bonus: The club, along with every team in Major League Baseball, is reportedly set to receive a cash payment of $50 million or more after the league sold a controlling stake in its technology arm - BAMTech - to Disney a year ago.
