1. Eric Hosmer

We have all been excited about the breakout performance that Mike Moustakas has put together thus far in the 2015 season, but we seem to be overlooking the season that Eric Hosmer has had thus far. Typically a slow starter, Hosmer had been solid over the first three weeks of the season before truly getting himself going this past week.

In the past seven days, Hosmer has posted a .345/.387/.655 batting line, slugging two home runs and three doubles among his ten hits. While Hosmer did strike out eight times in his 29 at bats this week, he more than offset that amount with his power and ability to drive the ball.

Currently hitting at a .315/.402/.489 rate this season, Hosmer is showing excellent patience at the plate and has been hitting the ball well. In fact, he looks like the player he was over the final four months of the 2013 season once George Brett got his hands on him. Now, to have him break out at the same time as Moustakas is truly rewarding the patience that the Kansas City Royals had.

While Eric Hosmer has been solid offensively, he has become known more for his glove. If he keeps hitting like he has been, that perception may change.

Now, which players were cold for the Royals last week?
