Hoskins went 1-for-3 with a home run, an additional run scored and two walks in Tuesday's loss against the Yankees.
Hoskins had gone eight straight games without a home run but snapped that skid here with a solo bomb in the second inning off Domingo German. The slugger now has 21 homers on the season and has a realistic shot at posting the second 30-homer campaign of his big-league career. He's also seeing the ball well, as he's hitting .304 with a 1.170 OPS across 56 plate appearances this month.
Hoskins is not in the lineup Thursday against the Cubs, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Hoskins will not start Saturday's game against Atlanta.
Hoskins' power is as present as ever this season, as his eight homers tie him for ninth in the league. His plate discipline has been strangely absent, however, as his 33.6 percent strikeout rate and 6.6 percent walk rate are both far worse than his career 24.1 percent strikeout rate and 14.6 percent walk rate. Despite those shaky numbers, there's been no indication that his day off Saturday is anything other than a routine one. Brad Miller starts at first base in his absence.
Hoskins is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers.
Hoskins finds himself on the bench for just the third time this season.

Brad Miller will be the first baseman in his absence.
