The word is spreading that Eric Hosmer has been promoted to the Kansas City Royals from Triple-A Omaha.

We did a Prospect of the Day for Hosmer a couple of weeks ago. He got even hotter after that was written, and was hitting .439/.525/.582 in Triple-A, with 19 walks and 16 strikeouts in 98 at-bats.

If I were the Royals, I would have promoted him, too. He's apparently too good for the Pacific Coast League, and the team still has a chance to compete this year. I've been a Kila Ka'aihue supporter, but I think at this point you simply have to go with Hosmer.
