Player Notes
Eric Hosmer ended Sunday's game against the Twins by hitting a walk-off double to score Lorenzo Cain.

Advice: Cain reached on a walk to start the ninth. After a pitching change, Hosmer delivered a double against Twins reliever Aaron Thompson to bring his teammate home and end the festivities. He also walked once to finish 1-for-3. Hosmer recently missed three games with a sprain of the left ring finger, but the injury was not of the major variety and he should be fine moving forward. The 25-year-old first baseman is slashing .287/.354/.437 with eight homers and 41 RBI this season.

Advice: Hosmer had missed the last three games with a minor left ring finger sprain. He should be fine.

Fri, Jul 3 Rotoworld
Eric Hosmer (finger) took some soft-toss swings on Wednesday.

Advice: Hosmer remains out of the lineup, but he's working toward a return in the coming days. The first baseman also planned to play catch and field some grounders before Wednesday's game. The left ring finger sprain is still day-to-day at this point.

Eric Hosmer (finger) is not expected to return to the lineup until at least Thursday.

Advice: Hosmer is nursing a sprain of his left ring finger. He had to be pinch-hit for on Sunday due to the ailment and will not play in the series versus the Astros that runs through Wednesday. The disabled list doesn't appear to be under consideration at this point. Kendrys Morales will handle first base until Hosmer is ready.

Eric Hosmer (finger) is expected to miss the next few games.

Advice: Hosmer is dealing with a mild sprain of his left ring finger. He was able to start Sunday's game in the designated hitter spot but had to be removed late for a pinch-hitter. It doesn't sound like the disabled list is under consideration at this point, but it appears we won't see him again until later on in the week.

Eric Hosmer is nursing a mild sprain of his left ring finger.

Advice: It's not keeping him from playing, but he will be used in the designated hitter spot rather than at first base Sunday, flip-flopping with Kendrys Morales. The ailment doesn't seem to affect Hosmer at the plate, so fantasy owners shouldn't have second thoughts about using him.
