Hosmer went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in the first game of a double header against the Red Sox on Wednesday afternoon.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The bomb was his eighth of the season. Similar to last year, Hosmer is off to a wonderful start. He is hitting .333/.395/.565 with 17 extra-base hits, 20 RBI and 21 runs. Last season, he hit .310 in April and smashed seven homers in the first two months.

Hosmer went 2-for-4 with his fourth home run of the season Sunday versus Seattle.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 26-year-old's impressive 18-game hitting streak came to an end Saturday, but he got right back to it Sunday, upping his average back to .333 with the pair of base-knocks. Hosmer's OPS sits at .912 through 24 games and he seems poised for another excellent season in the heart of the Royals lineup.

Hosmer went 3-for-4 against the Angels on Wednesday, but his two-run homer in the first-inning accounted for all the Royals' scoring in a 4-2 loss.

Competitive Edge Analysis

That's now 17 consecutive games with a hit for Hosmer, a career-long streak during which he's lifted his average from an early .214 to .333; that said, the counting stats still haven't really been there (just eight RBI and 10 runs) with the Royals' offense as a whole still stuck in first gear. It looks like Hosmer's on track for another strong season, but his power contributions will never fit in with the upper class of first basemen.

Hosmer went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk Sunday against the Orioles.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hosmer's second blast of the season gave the team a lead in the sixth inning that they wouldn't relinquish. He's now hit safely in 14 straight games, and his slash line sits at .314/.360/.486.

Hosmer went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Monday's loss to the Astros.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Royals didn't bring their clutch-hitting bats to the park in this one, stranding a small Midwestern town on base, and the three hitters ahead of Hosmer went 2-for-14, so circumstances conspired to limit his counting stats. Nonetheless, Hosmer's off to a .318 start even though six of his seven hits have come in just two games. We'll need to see more consistency moving forward, but even though the 26-year-old is still looking for his first homer, he should again provide a solid combination of power and average for fantasy owners.

Hosmer went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's win over the Mets.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 26-year-old wasn't exactly squaring the ball up Sunday, but his seeing-eye RBI single opened the scoring and he later reached on a diving bunt single. Hosmer posted the best all-around season of his career in 2015, and his Opening Day performance bodes well as he looks to continue his evolution.

Hosmer went 2-for-4 with his second home run of the spring in Saturday's split squad loss to the Rangers. He's hitting .400 (12-of-30) this spring.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After just nine home runs in 2014, Hosmer bounced back with 18 home runs last season. He had hit 14 or more home runs in every season before 2014, so it looks like he'll hit 14 or more again if spring training is any indication.

Hosmer went 1-for-4 with a game-winning two-run home run and a walk in a 5-3 win over the White Sox on Wednesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

That is now back-to-back games with a homer and it makes for four in his last 10 games. Hosmer is having the season that everyone has been anticipating for years, as he maintains a .301 average with 18 homers, 32 doubles and 91 RBI in 154 games played. The lefty is still just 25-years-old and he may be even better next season.

Hosmer is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Indians.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 25-year-old went 2-for-4 with his 16th homer of the year and two runs scored in the Royals' AL-Central-clinching win over the Mariners on Thursday. He will be rewarded with a day off Friday, as will most of the team's regulars, as Drew Butera steps in for the start at first base.

Hosmer went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo homer and two runs against the Mariners on Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The power production remains low for first base, but Hosmer's been a credit to fantasy owners everywhere else, as he's now sitting on a carer-high .304 batting average, with his 87 RBI and 93 runs also representing career bests. He's certainly been one of the big keys to the Royals' run to the AL Central title, which they clinched Thursday.
