Eric Hosmer signs 8-year deal with Padres, per reports Eric Hosmer signs 8-year deal with Padres, per reports

First baseman Eric Hosmer agreed to sign with the San Diego Padres on Saturday night, hoping to supercharge their rebuilding efforts and landing their biggest free agent prize in franchise history, sources familiar with the deal told Yahoo Sports.

Hosmer, 28, hit.318 with a.385 on-base percentage last season, which were both career highs.

With the addition of Hosmer, the Padres will likely shift first baseman Wil Myers back to the outfield, where he played the majority of his professional career prior to moving to the infield full-time in 2016.

Salmonella Outbreak Possibly Connected to Opioid Substitute
Evidence suggests that the source of the outbreak is possibly kratom, which is a plant that is used as a substitute to opioids. Despite the fact that no passings have been accounted for, 11 individuals have been hospitalized.

Nunez gets a guaranteed $6 million, according to multiple reports, including $4 million this season and a $2 million buyout.

The Royals appeared to be in a battle all spring with the Padres for Hosmer. The deal reportedly includes an opt-out after the fifth season.

The Royals will have four picks in the top 40 during this summer's first-year player draft, but even if all those selections pan out, it will be years before they're ready. The next year, Hosmer would win his second Gold Glove. Not only that, but Hosmer and the Royals would become World Series champions, defeating the New York Mets in five games. He may not be J.D. Martinez but Hosmer is loved around the baseball world for his leadership and intangibles. After this successful season, Hosmer finished 24th in MVP voting. In the end, the Padres were willing to go with eight years, and that was enough to persuade Hosmer to head to San Diego.
