Hosmer went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs in the 7-6 win over the Reds on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Hosmer has gone deep in three straight games, giving him 16 with 62 RBI this season. Those three homers match his best monthly total since May and he still has plenty of time left in September.

Hosmer went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Saturday's loss to the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Hosmer took Matt Harvey deep in the fourth inning, marking his second homer in as many games and 15th of the season. The first baseman has been underwhelming in his first season with the Padres, slashing just .252/.318/.397 through 139 games.

Hosmer went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Hosmer connected for a two-run shot -- his 13th of the year -- in the first inning off Tyler Anderson. Over 18 games in August Hosmer is hitting .311 with three home runs, 11 RBI and 12 runs scored. While his .261/.325/.405 slash line is a far cry from that of last year (.318/.385/.498), he's been heating up recently and is currently riding a nine-game hitting streak.

Hosmer went 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and a stolen base in Friday's 9-4 loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Hosmer's fifth-inning homer was reviewed after it appeared that a fan interfered with Jon Jay's leaping attempt, but the ruling was confirmed, allowing the first baseman to tally his 12th long ball of the year. The 28-year-old has under-performed with his new club, slashing a disappointing .257/.321/.396 over 521 plate appearances. Hosmer does own a modest six-game hit streak, and a late-season hot streak would go a long way in restoring his dwindling fantasy value heading into the 2019 season.

Hosmer went 3-for-5 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 10-6 win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Since the start of July, Hosmer's batting average has fallen sharply, dropping from .273 down to .254 after Sunday's big day. He's had trouble settling into his first season with San Diego with just 10 homers, 44 RBI and a .711 OPS in 472 plate appearances. He'll need a strong August and September to get near his career .280 batting average.

Hosmer started both games of Sunday's doubleheader against the Phillies, going a combined 2-for-9 with an RBI and a pair of runs scored.

EDGE Analysis

Hosmer's production has really tailed off of late, posting an ugly .123/.147/.192 slash line with just three extra-base hits in 75 July plate appearances. The 28-year-old has generally been a consistent hitter over the course of his career, so fantasy owners will just have to write this off as a rough slump. Hosmer continues to bat in the heart of the Padres' lineup, so his counting stat production should rebound once his bat heats back up.

Hosmer is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers, according to Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune.

EDGE Analysis

It's certainly odd that Hosmer is not in the lineup Monday with the Padres being afforded an extra spot in the batting order while playing in the Rangers' park, but manager Andy Green simply decided it was time for a day off, and the reasoning does make sense: Hosmer has started every game since April 27, owns just a .673 OPS in June, and is 0-for-13 in his career against Monday's opposing starter, Cole Hamels. Expect Hosmer to be back in action Tuesday.

Hosmer went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Hosmer took starter Miles Mikolas deep in the fourth inning for his ninth homer on the year. This was Hosmer's second home run in the last three games, and he now has 29 extra-base hits this season (which ranks fourth among all MLB first basemen). The 28-year-old is hitting .286/.368/.480 with 31 RBI and 34 runs scored.

Hosmer went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Hosmer has gotten off to a strong start in June, slashing .353/.389/.588 with two doubles, two homers and six RBI through nine games. The Friars' big-ticket free agent has been as advertised since joining the club, also providing fantasy owners with consistent production at the first base position.
