Latest Update Hosmer collects lone Royal RBI Wed Oct, 15, 09:05 PM
Owns a sweet left-handed stroke. Has power potential and plate patience, can hit for average and is also a very good glove man and athlete. Displays all-round ability.
Flaws: : Must prove capable of hitting left-handers with consistency at the big-league level. Must also meet expectations, especially in terms of his home-run prowess.
Hosmer is raking this postseason to a tune of a .400 batting average. He has three RBIs and the Royals will need him to continue this if they want to win the World Series. Hosmer hit .270 with nine home runs and 58 RBIs in the regular season.Analyst: Colby Conway
Hosmer's been great all postseason, and now has two home runs, seven RBI's, and is batting .475 with six walks through six postseason games. He has been on fire, and apparently this is thanks to a tweak in his swing he made prior to the playoffs. Hopefully he can keep hitting well and carry his success over to next year as well.Analyst: Ben Diamond
Hosmer went yard for the second time in the series and helped lead the Royals top a sweep of the Angels as he went 4-for-10 with a double, two home runs, four RBI, three runs scored and three walks through the three games. His .270 average with nine home runs and 58 RBI over the season aren't numbers you want to see from your first baseman, but considering how slow he opened the year, the finish wasn't completely awful. Perhaps we're looking at a new guy heading into next season, but unfortunately, his numbers don't exactly rate with fantasy owners as anything more than just a corner infield play. He could turn around and completely out-produce his draft position next year, but we'd need to see him run the breakout season wire to wire for us to really believe in the change.Analyst: Howard Bender
After a disappointing regular season, Hosmer is 6-for-11 with four walks in three postseason games. It could be that he is finally putting everything together, or he could simply be the next David Freese.Analyst: Steve Pimental
