News: Hosmer (hand) is back in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale vs. the White Sox, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Impact: Manager Ned Yost indicated it was doubtful Hosmer would return from his hand injury before the end of the series, but the first baseman apparently checked out fine during batting practice Wednesday morning to earn the starting nod. He'll slot in to the three-hole for the Royals, nestling in between Omar Infante and Salvador Perez.(RotoWire, )

News: Hosmer has been scratched from Monday's lineup due to a right hand contusion, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Impact: As a late scratch just after the weekly deadline in many formats, Hosmer's removal from the lineup is poorly timed. Billy Butler will man first base Monday, while Salvador Perez is shifting to the DH spot. Hosmer is considered day-to-day after apparently suffering the injury during Sunday's 6-0 loss to Boston.(RotoWire, )

News: Hosmer went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Thursday's loss to the Tigers. Impact: Hosmer took over a month to hit his first long ball of 2014, but is starting to pick up the pace in terms of power, having now homered in back-to-back contests. His .113 isolated power remains the lowest mark of his major league career, but he at least appears to be trending in the right direction.(RotoWire, )
Wed. July 9, 2014
News: Hosmer went 1-for-2 with three walks, two runs scored and a solo home run Wednesday against the Rays. Impact: Hosmer parked his first long ball since June 15 on Wednesday, giving the Royals a 1-0 lead on Alex Cobb in the first. He continues to show exceptional plate discipline, as it was the second time this month he has logged three free passes, giving him a .485 OBP in July. There's still room for improvement, however, as his current .260 average is 13 points lower than his career mark. He'll look to build off this July momentum in the second half.(RotoWire, )
