Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins will miss the remainder of the 2021 season after he was placed on the injured list with an abdomen tear that will require surgery, according to ESPN’s Joon Lee.
Hoskins said he will likely have surgery to repair the tear within the next week, with the expected recovery period ranging from six to eight weeks.
“It stinks,” Hoskins said. “The magnitude with where we are as a team and the time of year, as a player you want to be out there to help your team as much as you can. There’s been a lot of effort the last couple weeks to make that an option, but unfortunately sometimes the body just doesn’t respond.”
It’s a big loss for the Phillies, as Hoskins leads the team with 27 homers and 71 RBIs this season.
