Royals call up Hosmer

54

The Royals have called up first base prospect Eric Hosmer, demoting Kila Ka'aihue. Interesting move for a couple reasons: (1) They are starting Hosmer's service time clock early. (1a) He has less than 350 plate appearances above single-A. (2) They didn't give Ka'aihue much time. To quote from the link (Royals Review): "Yes, after multiple avowals that the Royals would give him a season to prove himself, the Royals gave him 96 plate appearances." (3) This may suggest that the Royals are trying to contend this year. One might argue that the Indians did the same thing with Alex White, but at least that was a spot opened up by an injury, and as far as I can tell, White should go back down when one of our two injured pitchers returns, either Carrasco sooner or Talbot later. Royals fans debate the move at the link.
