This will be an interesting switch for Hoskins, as he played first base exclusively prior to the 2017 season. He did log 30 games in left in the majors, so it's not entirely new to the slugger. However, this should help his fantasy stock nicely for 2018. He's currently eligible at both first base and outfield, which is outstanding when paired with his elite power potential. Hoskins projects to be a staple of the Phillies lineup for years to come, making him a valuable fantasy commodity.
Hoskins went 2-for-4 with a double and four RBI in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Dodgers.
Hoskins came in mired in a 1-for-13 slump, but broke out with an RBI single to chase starter Yu Darvish in the sixth inning before delivering the game's biggest blow with a three-run double in the seventh. The rookie phenom already has seven multi-RBI performances in September and has now smacked five doubles to go with his 18 home runs in 39 major-league games.
Hoskins went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Athletics.
Hoskins had a tough series against Oakland, going 0-for-11 with six strikeouts. The young slugger hadn't gone three games without a hit since his first three games in the majors last month. He'll try to bust out of his mini slump when the Phillies start a four-game set Monday against the Dodgers.
Manager Pete Mackanin said Hoskins will see more time at first base now that Aaron Altherr is back from his hamstring injury, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Hoskins has made 24 starts in left field and 11 starts at first base since his promotion from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He's likely to get 20-plus starts at first base this year which will give him eligibility at two positions next season in fantasy leagues.
Hoskins went 1-for-2 with a homer, a steal, three walks and two RBI Saturday against the Nationals.
Hoskins crushed his 14th homer of the season to tie the game at one in the second inning of a game the Phillies would go on to win. His incredible assault upon major-league pitching continues, as he's slashing an amazing .308/.433/.750.
