2017 FANTASY BASEBALL STATUS REPORT: RHYS HOSKINS 1B PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES

It can't be that easy.  Hitting a baseball is supposed to be the most difficult thing to do in all of sports but don't tell that to Philadelphia Phillies rookie first baseman Rhys Hoskins who made MLB history Friday night by clubbing a home run in his seventh straight game.  That awesome feat now beings Hoskins to a .283 average with 9 home runs in just 16 major league games which is incredible and it speaks to the massive natural power the 24-year-old has and made him such a big prospect in the first place.  When the Phils called up Hoskins a few weeks ago, I called it a run to the wire moment and so far we are seeing why.  The power should not be a total shock of course as Hoskins went into his promotion with the Phils with a ridiculous 29 home runs and 91 RBI in just 115 games at Triple-A and that showed how potent a bat the kid carries.  The future is very bright here and what is even more exciting is that Hoskins' 17.6 K.9 so far with the Philes shows he doesn't have the gaps in his swing that most young power prospects have.  Hoskins is as impressive a slugger as I have seen in awhile and next season he should be one of the more popular upside picks in fantasy baseball drafts.
