Padres' Eric Hosmer: Could play less against lefties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hosmer will open the season as the Padres' everyday first baseman but could find himself in a platoon if his struggles against southpaws continue, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Though Hosmer's hefty contract all but ensures that he'll receive regular playing time for the foreseeable future, the team could choose to lessen his exposure to left-handed pitching if Hosmer is unable to improve upon the .231 batting average and atrocious 59 wRC+ he registered against southpaws last season. Those numbers are hardly flukes; Hosmer was even worse in 2018, posting a .179 average and 45 wRC+ in 242 plate appearances against lefties. Per Cassavell, Wil Myers and Ty France are candidates to platoon with Hosmer at first base if the Padres ultimately decide to go in that direction.

The D'backs rallied for five runs in the bottom half of the inning however, and the Padres never caught up. Hosmer has swatted 22 homers and tallied 99 RBI and 72 runs scored in 159 games this year.

The first baseman has strung together a modest six-game hitting streak, going 12-for-25 (.480) over that stretch to boost his slash line on the season to .290/.336/.456.

Padres' Eric Hosmer: Receives breather Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hosmer heads to the bench for a maintenance day after starting the last 42 games, with Wil Myers taking over at first base for the Friars versus lefty Madison Bumgarner. Hosmer could perhaps use the day off given his .205/.237/.273 slash line over 21 games in July.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite his recent success, Hosmer's month-long batting line still sits at a disappointing .173/.189/.231. All three of Hosmer's extra-base hits during that stretch have been doubles, and he has scored just one run in 12 games.

Padres' Eric Hosmer: Two-hit game against Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hosmer went 2-for-3 with one run in Monday's win against the Brewers.

This was Hosmer's first game in the last week without an RBI, but runs were hard to come by for both teams in the Padres' 2-0 win against Milwaukee. The 29-year-old is currently on pace to surpass his career high of 104 RBI thanks in part to his recent surge in run production (12 RBI in seven games).
