Latest Update Hosmer Knocks in 2, Doubles in Route of Giants Wed Oct, 29, 02:27 AM
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 has looked like a new man in the postseason. According to a report earlier this fall, Hosmer changed his hand position during his load, allowing him to catch up to fastballs more easily. These types of anecdotes usually carry minimal water, but if it's any consolation, scouts have noted the issue dating back to his disastrous 2012. This could be the type of postseason a great career congeals around. But maybe it's not. He'll be a divisive player on draft day. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Hosmer is now 4-for-15 (.286) in the World Series and is hitting .386 (17-for-44) with two doubles, a triple, two home runs, 10 RBI and seven runs scored during the 2014 post-season. He was a big part of the team's four-run third inning and should continue to provide the Royals with a major offensive punch.Analyst: Howard Bender
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
