REPORT: Red Sox Targeting First Baseman Eric Hosmer

Jon Heyman of is reporting that the Red Sox are zeroing in on 1B Eric Hosmer to help boost their offensive potential. The 28-year-old first baseman had a terrific year in 2017—hitting .318 with 25 HRs and 94 RBIs. Hosmer's solid defense (three Gold Gloves) presents a well-rounded player who is in his prime—and also represents a positive clubhouse persona. Don't be surprised if Dave Dombrowski acts quickly to snare Hosmer and start the re-tooling process early in the off-season. Stay tuned! (Getty Images)
