San Diego Padres land Eric Hosmer

The San Diego Padres and the former Kansas City Royals first baseman have agreed to terms on an eight-year contract, according to multiple reports. Eric Hosmer will not be a Royal next year. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately available, but they're expected to be significant and near the $20 million per season range.

Hosmer was drafted 3rd overall by the Kansas City Royals in 2008.

Prior to Hosmer's reported deal, Myers' six-year, $83 million contract signed in 2017 was the largest pact in Padres history.

First baseman Eric Hosmer is reportedly signing with the San Diego Padres.

Foxx, for his part, has never been married, but has two daughters, Corinne, 23, and Annalise, 7, from previous relationships. Jamie Foxx is not ready to talk about his personal life, and definitely not to the nosy media.

The Padres will look to Hosmer to be a cornerstone for the team over the next several years. Wil Myers used to hold that distinction.

With Hosmer joining the Padres as a four-time Gold Glove victor at first base, Myers will push to the outfield, according to Lin. That was simply an appetizer for Hosmer, whose combination of age and talent was too tempting for the Padres to let him pass.

In his seven years with the Royals, Hosmer had 127 homers, 566 RBI and finished with a.284 batting average.
