Phillies First Baseman Underwent Offseason Knee Surgery

He's coming off a nice 2022 season.

Philadelphia Phillies slugger Rhys Hoskins underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in mid-December to repair the meniscus in his right knee.
The surgery, performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache, was deemed a clean-up procedure to address the "wear and tear" Hoskins experienced during the 2022 season.

Despite the surgery, Hoskins has been a full participant in spring training and has been cleared for full baseball activities. He is set to make his Grapefruit League debut on Friday, giving him over three weeks to prepare for the regular season.

Although the team didn't announce the surgery until reporters inquired about Hoskins' absence from spring games, there doesn't appear to be any cause for concern about his delayed appearance in the Grapefruit League.

The twenty-nine-year-old is coming off one of the best seasons of his six-year career, posting a .246/.332/.462 triple-slash line, with 30 home runs, 79 RBIs, two stolen bases and 81 runs scored over 156 games.

Hoskins will look to build on those numbers in the upcoming season. Photo Credit: Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports
