Eric Hosmer Signs with San Diego Padres

MLB All-Time saves (601) leader Trevor Hoffman walks with his family into the infield jersey retirement ceremony held by the San Diego Padres prior to the game against the Florida Marlins at Petco Park on August 21, 2011 in San Diego, California.

According to Jon Morosi with MLB Network, Eric Hosmer's contract will be the largest in Padres history.

He backed it up with another strong year in 2017, posting a.318/.385/.498 triple-slash line with 25 long balls and 94 RBI en route to the most complete offensive year of his career.

Hosmer's presence at first base will move Wil Myers back to the outfield, where he played the majority of his career prior to being acquired by San Diego from Tampa Bay.

KMBC will have more on this breaking story.

First baseman Eric Hosmer is reportedly signing with the San Diego Padres. Hosmer will make $105 million in the first five years. It includes an opt-out after the fifth year.

Hosmer was one of several big-name free agents repped by Scott Boras remaining on the open market despite spring training already being underway.

He made one of the signature plays of the 2015 World Series run - he sprinted home in the Top of the 9 in Game 5 against the New York Mets to tie the game. He was also crowned the All-Star Game MVP in 2016 and enjoyed success during the second round of the 2017 World Baseball Classic there.

Hosmer has won two Gold Glove awards, is coming off his third straight season with at least 18 home runs and 93 RBIs.
