Nothing to worry about here, no signs of panic, no argument that he's not going to be awesome... but Eric Hosmer is struggling a little bit.

No, this is no Ned Yostian attack. Just something to be aware of. In his last 75 PAs, Eric is hitting .221/.293/.250. On the season, Hosmer is now hitting .268/.316/.413. His OPS + is 104. His WAR is 0.2. After a hot start, we're seeing a normal thing: a rookie struggling to find his footing.

Carry on with your afternoon.
