Royals, Hosmer agree to $12.25M deal to avoid arbitration

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Royals have known all along that they would have Eric Hosmer anchoring their lineup next season. All that was left to determine was exactly how much they would be paying him.

Beyond next year is anybody's guess.

The Royals and the All-Star first baseman agreed on a $12.25 million contract on Friday, avoiding arbitration with a deal that could take the 27-year-old Hosmer to free agency after the season.
