Phillies’ Rhys Hoskins Fractures Jaw on Foul Ball

Published

on

Philadelphia Phillies left fielder, Rhys Hoskins has fractured his jaw after fouling a ball off his face during the ninth inning of Monday nights 6-1 loss to the Dodgers.

In a freal-like accident, Hoskins fouled a 95 MPH pitch straight to the mouth.  Rhys was immediately taken out of the game and examined by team doctors.  He was tested for a concussion and was cleared to play on Tuesday by the Dodgers medical staff.  Rhys did not start Tuesday night but would add a pinch-hit double in the ninth inning.  But after a CT scan Wednesday, it revealed that Hoskins has a fracture to his jaw.

 

Rhys exploded off the start by hitting .303 and posting a .457 OBP during the first month of the season.  But as May came around, the struggles started for Hoskins.  During the last month, he has hit a mere .161 while striking out 32 times in just 100 at-bats.  Unfortunate foul balls didn’t just affect Rhys on Monday as utility player, Pedro Florimon is expected to miss multiple weeks after breaking his foot by a foul ball.

The timeline for Hoskins return is unknown but a DL stint is likely.  The Phillies have stated that there are surgical and non-surgical options to repair the jaw.  A clearer plan should be known in the upcoming days.

The New York Mets will likely be big sellers at the deadline and it appears that they are shopping starter Noah Syndergaard.

According to Newsday’s Tim Healey, the Mets have discussed Syndergaard with around six teams, adding that there’s “minimal urgency” on the Mets’ part to trade Syndergaard.

Per the report, the Mets would need to be “wowed” in order to move Syndergaard.

Syndergaard, 26, isn’t having the kind of season he is accustomed to, pitching to the tune of a 4.68 ERA, and is posting other career-low numbers.
