Hosmer went 1-for-1 with a solo homer, a walk and two runs scored before being lifted in Sunday's 14-2 loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

If he doesn't end up returning to Kansas City in free agency, Hosmer had a fitting ending to his prodcutive tenure with the team. He finishes the season slashing .318/.385/.498 while tying last year's career best of 25 home runs.

EDGE Analysis

Hosmer now has four consecutive multi-hit games and is up to an impressive .328/.393/.517 slash line with 24 homers, 85 RBI and 87 runs for the year. He's quietly putting together another strong fantasy campaign and might be saving the best for September -- when it matters most.

Hosmer went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

His seventh-inning shot off Dan Jennings was Hosmer's 22nd of the season, and put what had been a tight ballgame out of reach. The first baseman is putting the finishing touches on an impressive August in which he's posted a .306/.393/.520 slash line with six homers and 20 RBI through 27 games.

Hosmer went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI Wednesday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Hosmer's walkoff three-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth turned a 4-3 deficit into a 6-4 win. The first baseman was also responsible for narrowing the gap earlier with a seventh-inning RBI single. This effort raised Hosmer's slugging percentage over the .500 mark to .503, continuing what has easily been the most productive season for a player that had never previously topped .465.

Hosmer went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and four RBI during Tuesday's loss in Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

Simply put, the 27-year-old is having an outstanding season. The lack of offense around Hosmer is arguably the only factor holding him back from a potential AL MVP Award. He's played in all 119 of his team's games while posting a career-high .314 batting average and .186 ISO.

EDGE Analysis

The first baseman got the party started with two outs in the top of the first inning by smashing his 19th homer of the year.

Hosmer went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Monday's loss to St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Hosmer has quietly gone about his business this season to the tune of 18 homers, 61 RBI, six stolen bases, 68 runs and a .315/.371/.498 slash line. He doesn't have the power that the top-tier first basemen offer, but Hosmer's reliability and cross-category production is still extremely valuable.

EDGE Analysis

After a trio of 0-for-4 goose eggs against the Mariners, the first baseman was productive in the second half the twin bill, swatting three hits -- including his 17th homer of the year in the sixth inning. Hosmer has now reached the 60-RBI threshold for the sixth time in seven seasons and continues to hit north of .300 (.316) this year.
