Fun with numbers: Where does Hosmer rank all-time among KC rookies?

Eric Hosmer crushed his 16th homer of the year on Tuesday, bringing his RBI total to 66.  KC’s first baseman debuted on May 6 and has played in 110 games (including Wednesday).  He is currently sixth in franchise history in both home runs and RBI among rookies.  Let’s take a look and see that Hos has a chance to move up a few notches in each category before the end of 2011:

Bob Hamelin, 1994  24 
Carlos Beltran, 1999  22
