Hosmer had a career-year at just the right time, hitting 25 home runs for the second consecutive season but raising his batting average to an impressive .318. That season garnered him a large contract from the Padres (after a lengthy wait), where he'll man first base for the next several seasons. Petco Park isn't nearly the pitcher's park it once was, and Hosmer shouldn't see too much of a dip in power with the move from Kauffman Stadium. The bigger issue for Hosmer is whether he can keep his average gains despite an extremely high ground ball-rate (fourth-highest in the league among qualified hitters last season). If he does, expect him to be a low-end starting first baseman in mixed leagues or a strong corner infielder.

Eric Hosmer agrees to 8-year deal with Padres

Eric Hosmer has agreed to terms with the San Diego Padres on an 8-year contract worth $144 million. The contract includes an opt-out after five years.

Fantasy Impact

The 28-year-old has now had back-to-back 25 home run seasons despite playing in one of the worst home run parks for left-handed batters. The Padres were the worst offensive team in 2017, so a potential dip in runs and RBIs would not be surprising. He'll likely bat cleanup behind Wil Myers in the upcoming season and is a decent mid-tier option at 1B, but fantasy managers should expect some regression in batting average after he hit .318 with a .351 BABIP.
