Is Eric Hosmer’s Power Surge Legit?

In case you missed Eric Hosmer‘s crazy Bigfly last night here it is.

After beginning the 2013 season with just one HR in his first 223 at bats the former first round draft pick has been banging HR’s with a flurry in the last 2 months.  In Hosmer’s last 243 AB’s (58 games) he has pounded 13 long balls.  The Royals first baseman is slugging at a .550 clip during this time as well.

I think this is what the Royals management had in mind when they picked Hosmer ahead of Buster Posey, Justin Smoak and Ike Davis in the 2008 MLB draft.  At 23 years of age I do believe this power surge is a sign of things to come.
