  • Padres' Eric Hosmer: Takes seat Sunday

    Hosmer is out of the lineup Sunday against the Giants.

    Hosmer finds himself on the bench for the second straight game to close out the season for the Padres. The 31-year-old could still make an appearance off the bench Sunday, but if not he'll end 2021 with a .270/.337/.396 slash line, 12 homers, 65 RBI and 53 runs in 564 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Eric Hosmer: Sitting Saturday

    Hosmer will be on the bench Saturday against the Giants.

    Hosmer owns a strong .991 OPS over his last nine games, though his season-long .270/.338/.396 remains disappointing for a first baseman. Jake Cronenworth will start in that spot Saturday.

  • Padres' Eric Hosmer: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Hosmer will sit Sunday against Atlanta.

    Hosmer's playing time has slipped recently, as he now finds himself on the bench for the fourth time in eight games. His .268/.336/.396 season slash line is good for a modest 102 wRC+, not a good enough number for an everyday first baseman on a team that was trying to contend. Jake Cronenworth will start in his absence.

  • Padres' Eric Hosmer: Not starting second game

    Hosmer isn't starting the second game of Friday's twin bill against Atlanta.

    Hosmer appeared in the conclusion of the suspended game Friday, but he'll retreat to the bench in the nightcap. Jake Cronenworth will start at first base while Tommy Pham enters the lineup in left field.

  • Padres' Eric Hosmer: Posts four-hit night

    Hosmer went 4-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 8-6 win over the Padres.

    Hosmer's four hits didn't translate to much on the scoreboard, as he was left on base three of the four times he reached. He did double in the ninth and finally scored as the Padres made a mini-comeback to make things interesting but largely wasn't rewarded for his efforts at the plate. The 31-year-old has just one home run since Aug. 9, which is something that's been missing from his game this season after he averaged anywhere from 18-25 home runs from 2015-19. For the year, Hosmer is slashing .271/.340/.395 with 11 long balls, 63 RBI, 50 runs scored, five steals and 45:93 BB:K over 531 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Eric Hosmer: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Hosmer isn't starting Tuesday's game against the Giants.

    Hosmer went 0-for-3 with two RBI, a walk and a strikeout Sunday, but he'll retreat to the bench for the second time in the last three games. Jake Cronenworth will shift to first base while Jurickson Profar starts in right field.

  • Padres' Eric Hosmer: Sitting Saturday

    Hosmer is not in Saturday's lineup against the Cardinals.

    Hosmer has started each of the last seven games, during which time he's hit .250/.276/.357. While it's not out of the ordinary for Hosmer to draw a day off, Jake Cronenworth returned to the lineup after a week-long absence and is starting at first base. If the Padres continue to play Cronenworth at first base and keep Fernando Tatis at shortstop -- he is starting there Saturday -- Hosmer's playing time could dip significantly to close the season.

  • Padres' Eric Hosmer: Returns to bench Friday

    Hosmer is not starting Friday against the Dodgers, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Hosmer will sit for the third time in five games against lefty Julio Urias. Jurickson Profar draws the start at first base and will bat sixth.

    Hosmer is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Angels.

  • Padres' Eric Hosmer: Blasts 11th homer

    Hosmer went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Monday's 7-5 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Hosmer went deep off Matt Peacock in the seventh inning to extend the Padres' lead to five runs. In addition, he was intentionally walked in the ninth inning. It was his first home run since Aug. 9. The 31-year-old is slashing .268/.336/.390 with 11 long balls, 56 RBI, 47 runs and five steals in 474 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Eric Hosmer: Reaches base three times

    Hosmer went 2-for-3 with a home run, an additional RBI, two additional runs scored and a walk in Monday's win over the Marlins.

    Hosmer had an excellent all-around performance Monday and reached base three times while also being responsible for five of the team's eight runs across the board. The first baseman is hitting .279 with a .744 OPS on the season. Hosmer has gone hit less just once since June 25, a span of 13 games.

  • Padres' Eric Hosmer: Smashes ninth home run

    Hosmer went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, walk and strikeout in the Padres' 6-2 win against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

    Hosmer took Taylor Widener yard in the second for his first long ball since July 18 and later walked in the fourth, the second time this month he's reached base multiple times. The first baseman is slashing a decent .275/.339/.391, though the slugging is Hosmer's lowest since 2012.

  • Padres' Eric Hosmer: Sits Sunday

    Hosmer is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.

    Hosmer will take a seat for the second time in five games, and more frequent off days look to be in his future following the acquisition of Adam Frazier. Though the Padres recently moved an everyday player in Fernando Tatis (shoulder) to the injured list, Jake Cronenworth and Frazier aren't expected to settle in as replacements for the superstar shortstop. Instead, rookie Ha-Seong Kim is expected to be installed as the primary shortstop in Tatis' stead, so Hosmer will continue to vie with Cronenworth for work at first base.

  • Padres' Eric Hosmer: Takes seat versus lefty

    Hosmer is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    The Padres' recent addition of Adam Frazier may not result in Hosmer losing out on steady work against right-handed pitching, but the lefty-hitting first baseman should find himself on the bench regularly versus lefties like Oakland's Sean Manaea, who is on the bump for the series finale. Jake Cronenworth will bump over from second base to cover first base in place of Hosmer, whom the Padres could be eager to move ahead of Friday's trade deadline if they can find a team willing to cover a portion of the money remaining on his eight-year, $144 million contact. That could be a tough task, given that Hosmer's .707 OPS is the second-lowest mark among the 25 qualified first basemen in MLB this season.
