Eric Hosmer is likely to play right field in Thursday's Cactus League game.
Advice: The Royals play in Philadelphia the first weekend of the season, so Royals manager Ned Yost wants him to get some reps in the outfield. The DH spot won't be available under National League rules, so Billy Butler will play first base. Jeff Francoeur will sit in this scenario, but most fantasy owners won't be disappointed by that.

So he'll get a few games hopefully to open the season and then by interleague play, he should only need a couple more, correct? With that said, with Eric Hosmer's skill-set, he could put up Cespedes-type #s. That move to the OF can only help his value, as a 1B with mediocre power, his values dampened but as an OFer with a nice blend of speed & power, his value goes up...
I'm still obviously hoping that Hosmer is the "Post-Hype" Variety, but what does the Café think???
