Eric Hosmer was a highly touted rookie and the former third overall pick would finish third in Rookie of the Year voting in 2011.  Hosmer would show steady numbers and a gradually increased power game, as he would belt 25 Home Runs in his last two years in Kansas City (2016-17).  A member of the 2015 World Series Championship Team, he would be named an All Star in 2016 and in 2017 would earn his lone Silver Slugger as a Royal while putting up a career high .318 Batting Average.

It should be noted that while Eric Hosmer did win four Gold Gloves he never had a positive Defensive bWAR and was never in the top four in top four in Total Zone Runs, nor was he ever first in Fielding Percentage and Range Factor per Game.  This was factored into his rank.
