Just call him Rhys Hoskins, major-league record holder.
To say the Philadelphia Phillies rookie has impressed over his first 17 major-league games would be an understatement - and he's showing no signs of slowing down. On Saturday night, Hoskins wasted no time and went deep yet again, hitting his 10th major-league homer some 417 feet off the CubsKyle Hendricks in the first inning to give the Phillies a quick 2-0 lead.

Hoskins now stands alone in baseball history as the only player ever to have hit 10 home runs in his first 20 major-league games - and he did it in game No. 17.

Hoskins, the Phillies' No. 6 prospect according to MLB Pipeline, has now homered in four straight games, and eight of his last nine. On Thursday he became one of three players in history to homer eight times in his first 15 big-league contests.
The 24-year-old is now slashing 298/.420/.842 on the season, is one of seven Phillies hitters with a double-digit home run total this season, and sits one shy of tying Freddy Galvis for sixth on the team.

Maybe we should start scheduling @RhysHoskins22 tweets.

Because he homers EVERY day. https://t.co/uq2gPpisiv pic.twitter.com/1hzTTEnUih

We're going to run out of superlatives for Rhys Hoskins at the rate he's crushing baseballs.

For the fifth consecutive game, the Philadelphia Phillies rookie slugger blasted a home run, tying a franchise record. He joins the likes of Dick Allen, Mike Schmidt, Bobby Abreu, and Chase Utley (who did it twice in 2008) as the only Phillies to ever do this, courtesy of Baseball-Reference. That's good company.

On Saturday, Hoskins became the first player to ever reach 10 dingers before his 20th career game. Now he's the first to reach 11 in that span, as Sunday was only the 18th game of his young career. Sunday's blast was also his eighth in his last nine games

His home run off Chicago Cubs reliever Koji Uehara was the icing on the Phillies' victory cake, as well. They took Sunday's series clincher by a score of 6-3.

The kid is just not a home run hitter. He has very good plate discipline, especially with 2 strikes and isn't trying to hit a homer with every swing. Between Hoskins, Nick Williams and a healthy Odubel Herrera and Aaron Altherr, the Phils are starting to finally put some young talent together. Get a pitcher or 2 in the off-season and wait for the 2018 off-season and sign Manny or Harper and you have a nice club. Also when Trout comes home after 2020, this will be a young and dangerous team.

A pitcher or two??  Apart from Nola, they've got nobody as a starter or reliever that instills any confidence in me.  Even if Sixto Sanchez is the real deal, he's still a couple years away.  They need a lot more than 2 pitchers.  I don't know much about this coming year's draft class but it looks like the Phils will once again have first overall.  Please tell me there's a ready-made, can't-miss pitching prospect.

Philly should be happy with anyone of these guys.

Yes, 1 or 2 pitchers. Nola is very solid and if they can get a couple younger guys and a vet and wait until they start playing more consistent, then they will be fine. I think they move Hoskins back to 1st if they let Tommy Joseph walk and the infield isn't great, but it's good enough for now. I also wouldn't be surprised if they cut ties with Franco and use a stop gap until 2018 or go after Moose in the off-season.

Phils scouting asleep at the wheel and now the marketing department is as well.




How can you have a kid named 'Rhys' (pronounced 'Reese') and not have a section entitled 'Rhy's Pieces' in the outfield. Disgraceful.

How many games does it take to accrue Hall of Fame eligibility? Asking for a friend.

Rhys Hoskins hit a pair of home runs Tuesday night against the Miami Marlins to increase his career total to 16 over the first 32 games of his career. That's right, the Philadelphia Phillies rookie is averaging a dinger every other game.

None of his 16 homers were as timely as the second one of Tuesday's game though, as the first baseman dramatically improved his team's winning percentage by tying the game with a solo bomb in the bottom of the tenth inning with two out. The home run gained the Phillies 48.9 percent win probability.

Including Tuesday's six plate appearances, Hoskins is slugging a nearly-unfathomable .754 with a .424 OBP in 32 games.

Thus far he's got better plate discipline than Judge.  Franco seems to have improved since Hoskins's arrival, too.  He no longer needs to feel the pressure of being the focal point of the Phils' attempt to rebuild.

Isn't this like the 24th rookie to have some kind of a hot home run start this season?

Rhys Hoskins can't seem to go a day without hitting a home run.

The Philadelphia Phillies rookie (legend) hit the 18th home run of his season Thursday, hammering an offering from Miami Marlins right-hander Vance Worley into the right-center field stands.

Hoskins reached 18 home runs in just his 34th game. The fewest number of games needed to reach 20 home runs is 51, according to ESPN Stats & Info, which gives the 24-year-old 16 games to break the record.

In a mini slump now. I like his approach at the plate.
