Hosmer agrees to eight-year deal with San Diego

The Padres made a huge splash late on Saturday night when they signed Eric Hosmer to an eight-year deal, according to sources.

Hosmer will be paid $20 million per year for the first five seasons and $13 million in each of the final three, plus a $5 million signing bonus, according to Bleacher Report.

Hosmer, 28, spent the first seven years of his career with the Kansas City Royals.

The first baseman will be leaving Kansas City for the sunny shores of San Diego. The Royals and Padres were the two linked to him the most, and while neither regularly dabbles in the elite free agent market, San Diego ended up winning in the end. He also had a career-best.385 on-base percentage. Nunez can reportedly exercise a $4 million option for 2019. While that sub-.300 OBP is a cause for concern, Renfroe's hit 30 home runs in 480 major-league ABs. He'll slot into the middle of the order for skipper Andy Green, pairing with slugger Wil Myers for a rebuilding Padres club.

Carter got a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training on Sunday, while Young agreed to a one-year contract. He sprained home on a ground ball that tied the game, which the Royals won in 11 innings. With the Yankees last season, Carter batted.201 with eight homers, but the first baseman led the NL with 41 homers for Milwaukee in 2016.

Young spent last season with Boston, batting.235 with 25 RBI in 90 games.
