Harris: Rhys Hoskins Is As Advertised
Over the last three seasons in the Minor Leagues, Rhys Hoskins averaged 28 Home Runs and 99 RBI per year as he made his case to be on the fast track to the Major League level. After going hitless in his first three games with the Phillies, Hoskins has turned it around on the team's road trip hitting three home runs and tallying four RBI in two games in San Diego at a stadium that is known as a "Pitcher's Ballpark".
CSN Philly Pre and Post Game Host Marshall Harris joined The Sports Bash on Tuesday and talked about Hoskins finally in the Phillies lineup:
"This is a guy, he is as advertised. They just had to find room for him and it took them long enough, he should've been ready to go. He didn't have the best of starts over the weekend but sometimes you just have a rough series, its baseball. (Monday) night you could understand what the excitement is at the front office level, especially at the fan level. This team doesn't have players who have authoritative power. You look at Hoskins, he's more of an almost average guy in terms of hitting line drives. Those bombs he hit last night, those were line drives home runs that happened to go 400 feet and I think its just a preview of whats to come the rest of the season and far beyond that."
