Phillies’ Rhys Hoskins Suffers Knee Injury in Grapefruit League Game
The Phillies have been battling some injuries of late.
- Bryce Harper continues to rehab from "Tommy John" surgery.
- Andrew Painter suffered a UCL sprain.
- Ranger Suárez is behind after some forearm tightness and probably is not ready for Opening Day.
And now it does not look good for their slugging first baseman.
Rhys Hoskins suffered a knee injury Thursday afternoon that led to him being carted off of the field:
The images invoked memories of Andrew McCutchen a couple of seasons ago.
The Phillies have depth at first base in Darick Hall, who hits left-handed, and Alec Bohm, who has gotten work at the position this Spring.
If Hoskins misses time (which seems likely by looking at the injury), a combination of Hall and Bohm could cover first base, while providing an opportunity for the likes of Edmundo Sosa and perhaps Spring surprise Jake Cave.
