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.
