Hosmer went on the 10-day injured list due to a fractured left finger Sept. 8 and has now reached his eligible return date. The 30-year-old has progressed to live batting practice and is no longer wearing a splint, so he appears imminently ready to rejoin the active roster.
Hosmer (finger) took part in live batting practice on the field prior to Tuesday's game, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Outfielder Abraham Almonte was recalled in a corresponding move.
Hosmer is expected to be able to return at some point during the final week of the regular season, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Hosmer suffered the injury on a bunt attempt Monday.

Hosmer (finger) was diagnosed with a fractured left finger Monday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Hosmer exited Monday's contest after fouling a bunt attempt off his finger. The severity of the injury was originally unclear, though he was ultimately diagnosed with a fractured left index finger.

He's added roughly 10 degrees to his average launch angle and in turn has added more than 130 points to his slugging percentage. The 30-year-old has also trimmed his K-rate back down and is even running a bit, so Year 3 in San Diego is looking a lot better than Years 1 and 2 did.
