Eric Hosmer had a double and three RBI in a loss to the Pirates on Thursday.

Hosmer had an RBI groundout in the third inning before swatting a two-run double in the fifth. After a month of April in which the first baseman couldn't buy an RBI -- he drove in two runs in the entire month -- Hosmer now has 15 RBI through a little over half of May. Interestingly, as his run production has gone up, his hitting has gone a little cold, dropping his line to .269/.367/.487 in 41 games overall.

Eric Hosmer went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Padres' defeat of the Rockies on Tuesday.

Hosmer hit that two-run shot off German Marquez in the bottom of the first inning to give San Diego an early lead. The first baseman then added a single in the bottom of the third. He's batting .270/.369/.487 with six home runs and 16 RBI in 40 games this season.
May 15 - 6:29 PM

Eric Hosmer hit an RBI double in the 13th inning to beat the Cardinals 2-1 on Saturday.

It was the only hit of the game for Hosmer in his six at-bats. The double is the 13th of the season for Hosmer, and it scored pinch-runner Jordan Lyles to give the Padres the win over St. Louis on Saturday. The $144 million signing has struggled as of late, and his average is down to .261 to go along with five homers and 13 runs batted in during his first season with the Padres.
May 13 - 1:17 AM

Eric Hosmer hit a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Dodgers, his second in as many games.

Hosmer yanked a Tony Cingrani offering out to right-center in the fifth inning, his fifth homer of the year. He had three homers in 28 games prior to the Mexico series, so the first baseman may seek a career in the Mexican League after his MLB days are over. Keeping that power stroke would be a huge benefit to fantasy owners, as Hosmer is already hitting .297/.403/.534 even with the five homers.
May 6 - 8:15 PM

Eric Hosmer hit a two-run home run, his fourth of the year, in Saturday's win over the Dodgers.

A day after getting no-hit by Walker Buehler and company, Travis Jankowski ensured there would be no repeat by leading off with a triple. Hosmer then made sure the shutout was off the table, too, taking Kenta Maeda deep for the two-run shot. Hosmer is up to 10 RBI -- still incredibly low for his numbers and spot in the order -- with 17 runs scored in 30 games this year. The first baseman is batting .293/.393/.509 overall.
May 5 - 11:23 PM

Eric Hosmer drove in three runs on a pair of hits on Wednesday in a loss to the Giants.

Hosmer knocked in a pair on a two-run double in the third off of Derek Holland, and the second RBI game on a garbage-time single off of D.J. Snelton in the ninth. Hosmer now has eight RBI on the season, and while that's a low number, it has much more to do with the fact that the hitters who have batted in front of him have stunk. Hosmer's .303/.402/.505 line with 11 doubles is much more indicative of how well he's played in 2018.
May 2 - 7:01 PM

Eric Hosmer socked a solo home run in the top of the ninth inning Tuesday in San Francisco to help his team to a 3-2 win.

Hosmer ended up 2-for-4 with a triple, the solo homer and two runs scored. He has four consecutive multi-hit games, going 9-for-16 (.563) with three doubles, a triple and a home run during the impressive four-game span, bumping up his average from .250 to .298 just since April 27.
May 2 - 4:46 AM

Eric Hosmer went 2-for-4 with a double on Monday in a loss to the Giants.

Hosmer's double gives him 10 on the season, and he also reached via walk. The power numbers haven't been there for the 28-year-old first baseman, but he is getting on base, and his line is now up to .290/.398/.450 on the season. Expect (or hope) to see some more homers as we get into the summer from Hosmer.
May 1 - 1:59 AM

Eric Hosmer went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored in a loss to the Mets on Sunday.

The three-hit game was the first of the year for the first baseman. Hosmer has done some work on his season line the past two games, going 5-for-8 to raise his average from .250 to .281 in those two games. Hosmer still has just two homers as a Padre, and somehow just four RBI despite 14 runs scored, but he has nine doubles and should see more of those leave the yard as the season goes on.
Apr 29 - 8:25 PM

Padres activated 1B Eric Hosmer from the family medical emergency list.

Hosmer hasn't played since Monday. He's sporting a .259/.364/.412 with two home runs in his first 22 games with the Padres.
Apr 27 - 5:49 PM

Padres placed 1B Eric Hosmer on the family medical emergency list.

He should only be away from the club for a couple of days. Hosmer is batting .259/.364/.412 with two home runs and four RBI through the first 22 games of an eight-year, $144 million deal with San Diego.
Apr 24 - 5:34 PM

Eric Hosmer went 2-for-2 with four walks in a 13-5 crushing of the Rockies on Monday.

Hosmer also scored two runs, and he drove in two for good measure. The former Kansas City all-star now has his on-base percentage up to .364 after the big game, but his .259 average and .412 slugging percentage leave a lot to be desired. Expect to see more hits drop for Hosmer as the season progresses, and hopefully we see a power increase to go along with it.
Apr 24 - 12:07 AM

Eric Hosmer finished 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

Hosmer's homer came off of closer Kenley Jansen, adding to the woes of the Dodgers' closer. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners he also earned the golden sombrero, striking out four times. It's been a slow go for Hosmer, striking out 20 times across just 68 at-bats. Still, he remains a must-start across most fantasy formats.
Apr 18 - 4:32 AM

Eric Hosmer (back) is back in the Padres' lineup Monday.

Hosmer missed a couple games with back tightness, but he's ready to roll now. The Padres' prized offseason acquisition is sporting a .288/.364/.458 batting line with one home run over his first 15 contests this season.
