Devastating Diagnosis Revealed For Rhys Hoskins

Another devastating injury has marred this 2023 spring training, and this time it's the Philadelphia Phillies taking the hit. The diagnosis is in on the frightening non-contact knee injury suffered by Phillies slugger Rhys Hoskins. And it's about as bad as it gets.

Hoskins will miss the entire 2023 season with a torn knee ligament. He'll have ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) reconstruction surgery. 

And even more disastrous for him, the 30-year-old is set to become a free agent after the season.

As a middle of the order bat, Hoskins hit between 27 and 34 home runs in each of his four full MLB seasons. He has a lifetime .846 OPS, and 148 HRs. 

The Phillies are also without team leader and superstar Bryce Harper for at least the first two months of the season, as he's recovering from Tommy John surgery.
