Rhys Hoskins exits Phillies game after being hit by pitch on right hand


MIAMI -- Phillies slugger Rhys Hoskins left Wednesday night's win over the Miami Marlins after being hit by a pitch on the right hand.

Hoskins was hit by Miami's Edward Cabrera in the top of the third inning.

Hoskins stayed in the game and played first base in the bottom of the third inning. He exited before the bottom of the fourth. Alec Bohm moved over from third base and played first base after Hoskins' exit. Edmundo Sosa played third base.

The initial diagnosis on Hoskins was a contusion. X-rays were negative.

"He'll probably miss a day because he's sore," manager Rob Thomson said.

The Phillies have been hit hard by hand injuries this season. Bryce Harper missed two months with a broken left thumb. Jean Segura missed two months with a broken right index finger. Hoskins ranks second on the team in homers (28) and OPS (.809) and third in RBIs (71).

No break was a good break.

"Any time a guy takes one up and in ..." said Harper, shaking his head. "Look at me this year. Seggy, too. It's a bummer that it happened, but he's OK. It's good to know there's no break."
