Report: Eric Hosmer finds new team after Red Sox release originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Eric Hosmer reportedly has found a new home in free agency.

The veteran first baseman has agreed to sign with the Chicago Cubs, according to ESPN’s Jesse Rogers. He was designated for assignment by the Boston Red Sox on Dec. 16 and released six days later.

Tomase: Red Sox’ projected 2023 lineup leaves much to be desired

Hosmer, 33, joined the Red Sox before the 2022 MLB trade deadline. He hit .272 with eight home runs and 40 RBI in 90 games for the San Diego Padres prior to the deal. With Boston, he was limited to only 14 games due to injury and hit .244.

The Cubs will only need to pay Hosmer the league minimum while he’s on the active roster. The Padres are on the hook for the former All-Star’s $13 million salary over each of the next three seasons.

With Hosmer out of the picture, prized prospect Triston Casas projects to be the Red Sox’ Opening Day starter at first base.
