Rhys Hoskins suffers knee injury during Grapefruit League game
The Phillies have struggled with a few injuries lately. Bryce Harper continues his rehab after “Tommy John” surgery. Andre Painter suffered a sprain at UCL. And Ranger Suarez is late after some forearm strain and probably not ready on opening day. And now that doesn’t look good for their hard-hitting first baseman.
The images evoke memories of Andrew McCutchen a few seasons ago.
The Phillies have depth at first base in Darick Hall, who strikes with the left hand, and in Alec Bohm, who found work in this position this spring. If Hoskins is running out of time (which seems likely looking at the injury), a combination of Hall and Bohm could cover first base, while providing an opportunity for players like Edmundo Sosa and maybe the surprise of spring Jack Cave.
