During the NL Wild Card Series, Hosmer went 2-for-12 with three RBI, one run, one walk and two strikeouts.
Hosmer is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants. Mitch Moreland will take over at first base as Austin Nola serves as the DH against lefty Drew Smyly. Hosmer has been hitting since his return from a finger injury Sept. 19 (.280 average) and will end the regular season with a career-high slugging percentage after never previously clearing .500 in his career.
Hosmer went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run during Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Angels. The veteran first baseman went deep during the opening frame, but the two-run shot was the only scoring the Friars were able to muster all day. Hosmer is now 3-for-15 with one homer, three RBI, one walk and five strikeouts in four games since returning from the injured list over the weekend.
Hosmer (finger) went 1-for-4 in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Mariners. Hosmer batted fifth and played the whole game at first base. He missed nearly two weeks with a fractured finger. Hosmer figures to battle with Mitch Moreland and Tommy Pham for playing time at first base or as the designated hitter the rest of the way. Hosmer has a .287/.341/.533 slash line with eight homers, three stolen bases, 32 RBI and 20 runs scored in 32 games this year.
Hosmer (finger) will be activated off the 10-day injured list Saturday and start versus the Mariners, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. The 30-year-old has been sidelined since Sept. 7 with a fractured finger on his left hand, but he'll return from the injured list for Saturday's contest. Hosmer and Mitch Moreland figure to split time between first base and designated hitter for the Padres.
