2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: RHYS HOSKINS SUFFERED FRACTURED JAW, OUT INDEFINITELY

The CT scan results that were taken on the jaw of Philadelphia Phillies slugging outfielder Rhys Hoskins came in Wednesday and the results were not good as a fracture was found due to the foul ball that hit him in the face Monday night.  As a result of the fracture, Hoskins was placed on the 10-day DL Thursday and prospect Dylan Cozens was called up to take his place on the active roster.  As far as Hoskins is concerned, the fracture is another low point in what has been a terrible May and an overall sophomore slump of a season.  He goes into the DL stint with just a .233 average, 6 home runs, and a sky-high 28.2 K/9 rate.  Strikeouts have been the big problem for Hoskins this season as opposing pitchers had a whole offseason to go to town on his weaknesses and despite drawing a ton of walks, the average has taken a major hit.  Add in the drastically reduced home run rate as pitchers refuse to give Hoskins anything good to drive and we have a disaster of a season in the making coupled with the DL stint.  Obviously given the cost and remaining upside, you want to stash Hoskins but he could be out until late June given the fracture.
