Royals' Eric Hosmer: Elbow swollen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hosmer has a swollen right elbow after being HBP in the WBC Championship game, 610 Sports Radio's Josh Vernier reports.

Hosmer didn't have to leave the game at all, so it doesn't appear to be anything overly serious. He'll take Friday off and will be reevaluated on Saturday, so expect another update on his status then.

Royals' Eric Hosmer: Goes deep to notch win in WBC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hosmer launched a game-winning, two-run home run in the eighth inning during Team USA's World Baseball Classic win over Venezuela.

After San Diego's thick-aired marine layer cost him a tater earlier in the game, the Royals' first baseman connected on a shot that cleared the right-centerfield fence. The impending free agent looks set to at least come close to matching his 25 home runs from 2016, but he'll need to reverse the two-year increase that gave him a 58.9 groundball percentage. Of course, that big-fly total was the six-year veteran's best, and if the 27-year-old takes to the air more, he'll offset the downside. Count him as a steady mixed league buy in the middle rounds, though overvaluing the power jump in AL-only leagues could hurt his owners.

Royals' Eric Hosmer: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hosmer agreed to a one-year, $12.25 million deal with the Royals on Friday, avoiding arbitration, MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan reports.

He received a $4 million raise over what he made in 2016 and will become a free agent after the 2017 season. Hosmer is entering his age-27 season, for what it's worth, and coming off a year where he set career highs in home runs (25) and RBI (104), but his .266 average was his lowest mark since 2012.

Royals' Eric Hosmer: Dealing with sore wrist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hosmer is out Sunday due to wrist soreness, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

Hosmer has reportedly been dealing with wrist soreness for the last few weeks. However, manager Ned Yost has said that the injury isn't anything serious. Looking onto the 2017 season, there's no reason to believe Hosmer's wrist ailment should hinder his future performance.

Royals' Eric Hosmer: Extends career-high homer total to 25
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hosmer went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Wednesday's contest against the Twins.

Hosmer's third-inning blast extended his career-high total to 25, and pushed his career-best RBI mark to 103. The first baseman is hitting just .250 this month, but he's fairly compensated by mashing five homers, tallying 21 RBI and scoring 14 runs during September.
