I like Rhys Hoskins a lot. I think he’s going to have a huge second half, and get the Phillies into the NL Wildcard game (along with a great supporting cast).
Last night on Memorial Day, he fouled a ball off his face and had to leave the game in the ninth. He was in the middle of a tough at-bat against Kenley Jansen.

He let the fans know he was okay:
All good guys, just a liiiiiittle swollen. Thanks for reaching out!
On the positive side I’ll get to wear a helmet flap like the cool kids now 😎 #GoPhils

Tonight, the Phillies tuned up my Dodgers 6-1 down at Chavez Ravine. He climbed in the box late as a pinch hitter against Daniel Hudson and ripped a double. Impressive to see.
