Royals lose Eric Hosmer to the Padres. Here’s why and how the contract offers differed

At first glance, the San Diego Padres’ contract offer to free-agent first baseman Eric Hosmer appears roughly similar to the overall dollar number dangled by the Kansas City Royals. But the Padres front-loaded their deal, guaranteeing Hosmer $105 million in the first five years, while the Royals likely included smaller yearly salaries in 2018 and 2019 to Hosmer before a new local television contract kicks in.
