KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Perhaps no one responded more positively to the Royals' decision to bring in George Brett and Pedro Grifol as the team's new hitting coaches in late May than first baseman Eric Hosmer, who resurrected his career in 2013. And with that resurrection came another honor. Hosmer, who also won his first Gold Glove last week, on Tuesday was named the Les Milgram...

Royals rumors: Hosmer not discussing extension with club

Going into 2011, Eric Hosmer was atop the prospect list for the Kansas City Royals. But, after 2 years of not to exciting results, his prospect shine was starting to fade.
