The Phillies just announced moments ago that Rhys Hoskins will miss the remainder of the season as he must undergo surgery to repair a torn abdominal muscle. Can’t exactly say the news ends their season the way most did when Braves’ Ronald Acuna Jr. went down — mainly because the Phillies’ season is already shot.
Hoskins going down is more of a nail in the coffin.

Philadelphia now sits five games back of the Atlanta Braves who were just swept in their two-game series with the Yankees, so one would think this was the time for the Phillies to strike. They ended up sputtering on the field, losing seven of their last ten, and now the Hoskins news for dessert.
We know Phillies fans usually focus on the rain — however, now is the time for that doom and gloom mentality. The Philadelphia Phillies are done. And per usual, we wish Rhys Hoskins the best of luck in surgery and in his recovery towards a healthy 2022 campaign.
