The Kansas City Royals have offered first baseman Eric Hosmer a seven-year contract worth $147 million, according to multiple media outlets.

The offer comes after the San Diego Padres proposed a seven-year deal worth $140 million. People close to the situation have given updates anonymously. 

Hosmer, 28, wants a deal that spans at least eight years. In 2017 he batted .318 with 25 home runs and 94 RBI.
