Royals have made seven-year, $147 million offer to Eric Hosmer

Kansas City Royals Eric Hosmer celebrates after hitting a solo home run during the first inning of a baseball game against the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday Oct. 1 2017 in Kansas City Mo

That offer would top another offer reportedly before Hosmer, a seven-year, $140 million deal from the San Diego Padres.

The Royals are not the only team that is interested in signing Eric Hosmer, however. For a small market team like the Royals or Padres, signing him to a seven-year deal could potentially make life hard down the road when trying to build a complete roster. He hit.318 with 25 homers and 94 RBIs with a career-best.385 on-base percentage.

In September, Hosmer said he wasn't sure how his free-agent foray would end but hoped Royals fans would remember him fondly if he landed elsewhere, per John Pepitone of WDAF.

According to a report from USA Today, the Kansas City Royals have offered their free agent first baseman a franchise-record seven-year deal worth $147 million. Whichever team signs Hosmer figures to sign him with the idea that they can tap into his offensive potential by getting him to hit the ball in the air more often. He could be waiting to see if other suitors emerge. The fact that Hosmer is still just 28-years old is also intriguing.


Hosmer is seeking at least an eight-year or nine-year deal, but it's unknown whether either team will increase their offer to meet Hosmer's request.

The terms of the reported offer would represent an average annual value of $21 million per year and double the largest expenditure in franchise history, a four-year, $72-million contract given to Alex Gordon following the 2015 season.

This is certainly a bold stroke by Kansas City GM Dayton Moore.
