Eric Hosmer has had a nice season thus far. However, Hosmer has a lot of company in the under 25 1B ranks. This poll doesn't include Jonathan Singleton and Yonder Alonso who may be pushed to the OF due to being blocked by the MLB team's 1B. So how does Hosmer rank among the young up and coming 1B in MLB?
In my opinion... Hosmer tops the list. Freddie Freeman is tearing the hide off the ball right now. Justin Smoak has the potential to be great. However, Hosmer combines great defense, a solid approach at the plate and the potential to hit for power.
