Rhys Hoskins' Replacement Suffers Injury; Phillies Forced To Make Roster Moves

The Philadelphia Phillies were dealt a massive blow when they lost first baseman Rhys Hoskins for the entirety of the 2023 season just before Opening Day.

Now, the Phillies are facing more bad news following an injury to Darick Hall during Wednesday's game against the New York Yankees.

Hall sustained a right thumb sprain while attempting to turn a single into a double and may need to be placed on the injured list.

In response, the team is reportedly considering recalling Kody Clemens, who was acquired in a trade with the Detroit Tigers in January. Clemens is known for his versatility on the field, with the ability to play multiple positions, including the infield and corner outfield spots.

Jon Heyman of the New York Post has reported that Clemens is expected to be recalled for the Phillies' home opener against the Reds on Friday.

If Hall does miss time, players such as Edmundo Sosa, Josh Harrison, and Clemens may see an increase in their playing time.

The 27-year-old had four hits, a double, a run scored, an RBI, and a walk through the first six games of the season. Photo Credit:  Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports
