Eric Hosmer Debuts Tonight: The first wave of the young elite prospects in the Kansas City Royals organization arrives today, as the team called up 21-year old first baseman Eric Hosmer, the #1 rated prospect in the #1 minor league system according to Baseball America. The team made the decision despite the fact that waiting another month would have saved one more year of arbitration eligibility. Former GM Jim Bowden: “Put all of that together, and Hosmer will develop into a hitter not only is capable of winning a batting title but — perhaps even more impressively — an OPS crown someday. To me, it’s always an exciting day in baseball when future stars are born. Welcome to the Show, Mr. Hosmer!” [ESPN’s Sweet Spot Blog]
