Eric Hosmer had a great season for the Royals during his rookie season batting .293 with 19 homers and 78 r.b.i.'s. He finished 3rd in the A.L. Rookie of the Year voting behind Jeremy Hellickson and Mark Trumbo.
Former Royal Matt Stairs has played for 12 different teams during his career including 3 for the Royals from 2004-2006. Stairs ability to hit the long ball made him a quality left-handed pinch hitter. His 265 career home runs make him the all-time Canadian born leader and he also holds the record for most home runs by any player that has been on 10+ teams.
Finally, David Ortiz, the career leader in home runs by a designated hitter. I give you his home run from August 8, 2006 off Luke Hudson at Kauffman Stadium.
Thanks Brendan for a great trade!
