KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) - Eric Hosmer, the top prospect in Kansas City’s talent-rich minor league system, will start at first base on Friday night in his major league debut.

The Royals made the announcement moments after their 9-1 victory on Thursday over Baltimore. He will replace the struggling Kila Ka’aihue at first base.

KC’s first-round draft pick in 2008, Hosmer was hitting .439 for Triple-A Omaha with three home runs and 15 RBIs in 26 games. He had a slugging percentage of .582.
