KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Former Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer will honor the late Yordano Ventura. 

San Diego Padres MLB.com beat reporter AJ Casavell reports Hosmer will wear #30 as his new jersey in San Diego. 

Hosmer wore #35 in Kansas City, but that jersey has been retired by the club. 

Ventura was killed Jan. 22, 2016 in a car wreck in the Dominican Republic. 

The Padres formally announced Hosmer's contract on Twitter Monday evening. 

A press conference will be held in San Diego on Tuesday.
