Phillies Rhys Hoskins Has A Torn ACL

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Philadelphia Phillies announced Thursday that first baseman Rhys Hoskins has suffered a torn left ACL.

Hoskins was carted off the field after suffering a non-contact injury during his team’s spring training game against the Detroit Tigers today.

The Phillies have not yet disclosed a timeline for Hoskins’ recovery, the injury presumably means he’ll miss the entire 2023 season.

The 30 year-old Hoskins is scheduled to become a free agent after the season. The Phillies are already without their superstar Bryce Harper, who will miss the start of the season while recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Last season, his sixth with the Phillies, Hoskins batted .246 with 30 home runs and 79 RBIs. He also belted six postseason homers during Philadelphia’s improbable run to the World Series last year, including four in the National League Championship Series.

In Hoskins’ absence, the Phillies could slide Alec Bohm over to first base and slot utility man Josh Harrison in at third.

The Phillycould also put Darick Hall at first base, though his glove leaves a lot to be desired. That would open up the DH spot for Bohm, Nick Castellanos, or Kyle Schwarber.
