1B,LF - PHI
Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports that Rhys Hoskins underwent a different procedure than Tommy John surgery.
It was initially reported that Hoskins underwent TJ surgery with a 4-to-6 month recovery timeline. That seemed short, and the reason is because he actually underwent an internal brace repair. The 27-year-old is aiming to be ready for spring training 2021, but his recovery will be important to monitor this offseason.
1B/OF Rhys Hoskins will be sidelined for the next four-to-six months after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his left elbow Friday.
Hoskins missed the last two weeks of the regular season due to a UCL injury. He needed Tommy John surgery to correct the issue. The 27-year-old will rehab over the off-season and look to be a full participant at the start of spring training. There is a possibility Hoskins could be out at the start of the season. He slashed .245/.384/.503 with 10 home runs, 26 RBI and 35 runs over 185 plate appearances in 2020.
Rhys Hoskins (elbow) is unlikely to return prior to Sunday’s season finale.
Hoskins is “long shot” to play the remainder of the regular season, per Phillies manager Joe Giradi. It’s unclear at this time if Hoskins (if the Phillies qualify) will be available for the postseason. Hoskins remains day-to-day.
Rhys Hoskins (elbow), who was placed on the IL on Monday with damage to his left UCL, may need Tommy John surgery to repair the damage. The Phillies are hoping that he can return and play through the injury, since it is to his non-throwing elbow, but Hoskins needs to undergo further testing before a clear picture for his availability emerges. The Phillies will continue to update the situation as it develops.
Hoskins is slashing .254/.384/.503 with ten home runs in 151 at-bats for the Phillies this season. Fantasy owners in standard 12-team redraft leagues looking to replace Hoskins' pop in the line-up could look to add Jared Walsh, DJ Stewart, Bobby Dalbec, Mitch Moreland or Adam Duvall if they are available.
The Phillies placed 1B Rhys Hoskins on the 10-day injured list Monday.
Hoskins missed both games of Sunday’s double header due to a left elbow injury. He will miss at least the next 10-days. Look for Phil Gosselin to handle first base duties with Hoskins sidelined.
