1B - PHI - IL60
Phillies' first baseman Rhys Hoskins is out for the remainder of the 2021 season due to a tear in his lower abdomen.
Hoskins was just placed on the 10-day IL with what the Phillies initially thought was a groin strain, but it looks to be a much more serious injury than they initially suspected. Hoskins will have season-ending surgery to repair a tear in his lower abdomen, a huge blow to the Phillies and their long shot playoff hopes. Hoskins will end the 2021 season with 27 home runs, 71 RBIs, and a slash line of .247/.334/.530.
Phillies' first baseman Rhys Hoskins has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a left groin strain.
After returning from the IL on Sunday, Hoskins again finds himself on the IL after being diagnosed with a left groin strain. Hoskins played just three games, but was quite productive in those outings, going 3-for-8 with three homers. The Phillies are five games behind the Braves, and without Hoskins and his power in the lineup, a late playoff push seems all the more daunting. Brad Miller is starting in Hoskins' absence, and it looks like that should continue to be the case while Hoskins recovers. Miller is hitting just .218 with 12 homers and an OBP of .310, and as such, shouldn't garner much fantasy consideration.
Rhys Hoskins has returned to the Phillies' lineup on Wednesday against the Rays.
Hoskins just returned from a groin injury, so the team has been mixing in some off days for him. He'll hit cleanup in tonight's game against Ryan Yarbrough and the Rays.
Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins went 2-for-3 with two home runs and a walk in Sunday's win over the Padres. The two homers give him 26 on the year.
Hoskins appears to be fully recovered from his grown injury and should be a solid source of power for fantasy managers heading into their H2H playoffs or final weeks of roto leagues.
The Phillies announce they have activated first baseman Rhys Hoskins from the 10-day injured list. He had missed more than two weeks of action due to a groin injury. In a corresponding move, third baseman Alec Bohm has been optioned to Triple-A.
Hoskins is in the Phillies' starting lineup on Sunday, batting fifth and playing first base. He is slashing .244/.332/.509 with 24 homers, 68 RBI, 46 walks, and 108 strikeouts this season. The 28-year-old had put together a phenomenal .435/.500/.957 line over the final seven games before his placement on the injured list.
