PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins had Tommy John surgery on his left elbow last week, and the team says he is expected to return to play in four to six months.
Hoskins injured his ulnar collateral ligament when his non-throwing arm collided with a baserunner on Sept. 12 against Miami. Dr. Steve Cohen performed the surgery on Friday. Pitchers typically need several more months to recover.
Hoskins batted .245 with 10 homers and 26 RBIs in 41 games for the Phillies in 2020.
