And although Kansas City is slated to lose several members of its core on the open market this winter, Hosmer still is relatively young and held in very high regard across the organization for his leadership skills.
The Kansas City Royals aren't giving up on all of their free agents just yet.
A lifetime.284 hitter, Hosmer is coming off his most productive Major League Baseball season to date -.318/.385/.498, with 25 home runs, 98 runs scored, and 94 RBI.
However, a deal for free-agent first baseman Eric Hosmer may be gaining traction.

If the Cardinals were inclined, they surely have the means to make a better offer for Hosmer. USA Today reports that the Royals have offered Hosmer a seven-year, $147 deal offer to compete with the reported seven-year, $140 million offer from the Padres. He could be waiting to see if other suitors emerge.
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.
But, for teams like the Royals and Padres who are rebuilding, then this gaudy contract is not worth throwing Hosmer's way. History has shown us that the longer the contract, typically it does not work out in the favor of the club. On Tuesday it was reported that the Chicago Cubs are also interested in the 27-year-old right-hander.
