Eric Hosmer signs with Padres

Eric Hosmer signs with Padres

He also helped the Royals reach back-to-back World Series, including beating the Mets in 2015.

Late Saturday night, reports surfaced that Hosmer has agreed to sign with the San Diego Padres. The front-loaded contact is worth approximately $140 million, with Hosmer receiving $20 million for each of the first five years and $13 million each of the next three years, according to Bleacher Report.

Hosmer is in the prime of his career and was rumored to be looking for a multi-year deal. Both reportedly had offered Hosmer a 7-year contract while he held out for a 9-year deal.

For his career, Hosmer has hit.284 with 127 home runs and 566 RBIs in seven years with the Royals, who selected him third overall in the 2008 draft. The Chicago Cubs signed Yu Darvish last week, but other stars like J.D. Martinez, Mike Moustakas, Jake Arrieta, Lance Lynn, Alex Cobb, Carlos Santana and Jonathan Lucroy remain unsigned.

Eric Hosmer's extended run as a free agent appears to be nearing its end. Davis led the American League with 43 stolen bases for the Indians in 2016.

Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett won his salary-arbitration case, giving players a final 12-10 margin over clubs this year, only their fourth winning record since 1996.
