Default ...::Royals | 2018::...

Since opening day is approaching

Eric Hosmer offered a $147 million, seven-year deal to stay with Royals, report says

The Royals have offered Eric Hosmer a seven-year, $147 million contract, according to a report from Bob Nightengale of USA Today.



The report, which cited anonymous sources close to Hosmer, said the offer was $7 million more than a seven-year, $140 million deal offered by the San Diego Padres.
The Royals’ deal for Hosmer would represent an average annual value of $21 million dollars per year and double the largest contract in franchise history, a four-year, $72 million contract given to Alex Gordon following the 2015 season.
The Royals have pursued Hosmer all offseason, believing a long-term deal for their first baseman could fit within the club’s plans for a long-term rebuilding movement. The market for Hosmer has also been slow to develop after the Red Sox appeared to pass and other big-market teams, including the Dodgers, Cubs and Yankees, were out of the market for first baseman.

White Sox land relievers Luis Avilan, Joakim Soria in 3-team, 5-player trade



Seeking to bolster their bullpen, the White Sox acquired left-hander Luis Avilan and right-hander Joakiam Soria in a five-player, three-team trade Thursday that included the Kansas City Royals and Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Dodgers reportedly gave the White Sox $2 million in cash considerations in exchange for minor-league infielder Jake Peter, and the Dodgers acquired left-hander Scott Alexander from the Royals in return for infielder Erick Mejia and right-hander Trevor Oaks. The Royals reportedly sent an additional $1 million to the Sox.
Avilan is expected to earn $2.3 million through arbitration in 2018. Soria is set to earn $10 million as part of his contract.
“This deal provides us with additional late-inning options as we look to solidify our bullpen,” Sox general manager Rick Hahn said in a statement. “Both Avilan and Soria provide us with veteran depth and enhanced flexibility moving forward.”

Avilan, 28, was 2-3 with a 2.93 ERA in 61 games last season for the Dodgers. He struck out 52 in 46 innings — or 10.2 batters per nine innings.
Soria, 33, was 4-3 with one save and a 3.70 ERA in 59 games for the Royals last season. He has 204 career saves.
He struggled in two seasons after returning to the Royals in 2016, posting a career-high in walks (27 in 66 2/3 innings). His ERA also rose to 4.05 that season.
Alexander, 28, emerged as a key pitcher for the Royals last season, going 5-4 with four saves and a 2.48 ERA in 58 games. The Dodgers lost durable Brandon Morrow from their bullpen when he signed with the Cubs this offseason, and lefty Tony Watson became a free agent.
The 24-year-old Peter hit a combined .279 at Class AA and Class AAA in the White Sox organization.
Kansas City got 24-year-old starter Trevor Oaks, a righty who went 4-3 with 3.83 ERA at Triple-A for the Dodgers, and 23-year-old infielder Erick Mejia, a switch-hitter who spent most of the season at Double-A for Los Angeles, batting .278 with 28 stolen bases overall in the minors.

Good for Cain. Surprised he got anything over a 3 year contract.

Royals have traded LHP Ryan Buchter and DH/1B Brandon Moss to Oakland for right-hander Jesse Hahn and Minor League right-hander Heath Fillmyer. This could clear some payroll space for a certain free-agent first baseman you know.

So what's the holdup on Hosmer signing? We've offered him the best deal.

The #Padres got their man. Eric Hosmer is their new first baseman.

Eric Hosmer has agreed to an 8-year contract with the #Padres that includes an opt-out after 5 years, source says.

Vargas and Moylan are gone. Vargas to the Mets, Moylan to the Braves.

I'm pretty pumped for all of these changes as it'll hopefully mean cheap seats this year.

Royals are resigning Mike Moustakas to a 1 year deal.

Mike Moustakas, who turned down a $17.4 million qualifying offer from the Royals, has agreed to a one-year contract with his former team that guarantees him $6.5 million.

Royals have had 4 draft picks in the top 40 picks... and they have taken 4 college pitchers.
