Phillies First Baseman Rhys Hoskins Just Went Down on a Non-Contact Injury, Had to Be Carted Off (UPDATE: ACL)
There’s not a ton you can say about the injury in these situations other than you just hope it’s not as bad as it looked.
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins was fielding a grounder, had to make a little change of direction, and it looked like his knee just gave out:
Ultimately the cart had to come out to take Hoskins off the field. A further update will come after more testing. Hoskins, 30, has hit .242/.353/.492/125 wRC+ in his career for the Phillies so far, and is set to hit free agency for the first time after this season.
UPDATE: Oof. It’s the ACL:
We know there’s an outside chance that Hoskins could be back very late in the year or in the postseason – his teammate Kyle Schwarber proved that – but it takes a really extreme case for that to happen. The more likely scenario is that the Phillies just lost Hoskins for the year. They’ve got a lineup that can still be outstanding without him, but that’s a very good bat to lose.
