Rhys Hoskins Looking Pretty Good in Batting Practice...
Rhys Hoskins taking batting practice today at CBP. Crushing the ball. He could be ready for some live pitching soon. He will most likely go to Clearwater for some work

Rob Thomson has previously said that if Hoskins is able to play in the postseason, it will be as a designated or pinch hitter. He also doesn’t think Rhys would be available before the World Series, communicating that thought in a recent WIP interview, but you never know. Get Hoskins some Aaron Rodgers-esque Eastern medicine routine and he’ll be emerging from the figurative darkness to spike the bat at CBP in October.
Here’s that full quote from the morning show:
“I think there is (a chance he returns). You know, this guy is making a lot of progress. Now, he has to go through a lot more testing with the training staff and doctors. But he is now hitting on the field. He’s taking, 70, 75, 80 swings a day. He ran the bases the other day. He’s really making a lot of progress and it’s really remarkable to think that we do have a chance, maybe by the World Series. It’s not out of the question. It would still be ahead of schedule, I would say, but it’s not out of the question.”
