good news on hoskins, no surgery, phillies, philadelphia, mlb
By Annie Ross
The Phillies got good news yesterday about injured Rhys Hoskins, who doesn’t need surgery.
“It looks like it’s going to be more of a weeks thing than a months thing,” manager Gabe Kapler said about Hoskins’ recovery. “That’s obviously really good news. I thought it was a moment to celebrate because we know we’re going to have him back sooner. We know he’s not going to have his mouth wired shut.”
Hoskins broke his jaw Monday, when he fouled a pitch off his face in the ninth inning of a loss to the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. Dodgers physicians cleared Hoskins to play Tuesday and he hit a pinch-hit double later that night. But a CT scan following Tuesday’s victory revealed a fractured jaw.
The Phillies officially placed him on the 10-day disabled list yesterday, recalling outfielder Dylan Cozens to take his place on the roster.
“I forget the wording about the fracture, but it’s stable,” Kapler said. “That’s why it didn’t require surgery.”
The purpose of journalism, and in this case any Philly digital site, is to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.”
