Groin soreness for Rhys Hoskins, that’s why he’s out of the lineup today. Something Phillies will have to manage going forward. His career numbers vs. Marcus Stroman did not play into his sitting today, Girardi said.

They’re gonna have Brad Miller play 1st and bat 7th.
It’s a bummer because Hoskins has been raking as of late. Five hits and five RBIs in the four-game Washington sweep. He knocked in 19 runs in July and logged a 1.163 OPS and .310 average.
Big series for the Phillies against the Mets this weekend. Huge. Probably the most significant series since… God, I don’t know when. Biggest series in a long ass time.
