There was a thought the Red Sox could potentially sign first baseman Eric Hosmer, but it may not happen.

According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, the Padres have become clear-cut favorites to sign Hosmer after two face-to-face meetings, but the Red Sox are still lurking.

The first baseman played in all 162 games last year for the Royals and finished batting .318 with 25 home runs and 94 RBIs.
