Phillies rookie Rhys Hoskins homers in fifth consecutive game (Video)
The likes of Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger are rightfully getting all the publicity, but there is another rookie slugger quietly making a name for himself in Philadelphia.
Left fielder Rhys Hoskins was called up by the Phillies and made his MLB debut on Aug. 10. In that short period of time, he’s hit 11 home runs, including a bomb on Sunday that meant he had homered for the fifth consecutive game.
Maybe we should start scheduling @RhysHoskins22 tweets.

Hoskins has been doing some crazy things since he was called up. He won’t get the publicity of Judge and Bellinger because he’s playing on a team that isn’t anywhere close to contending, but he’s proving to be just as exciting as his counterparts so far.
