Rhys Hoskins has surgery; out 4-6 months.
Rhys Hoskins underwent Tommy John Surgery on his injured left elbow last Friday and is expected to miss 4-6 months.
The injury was terrible timing for Hoskins. Over the last 22 games before injuring his elbow against Miami in early September, he was hitting .275 with nine homers, 19 RBIs and a .979 OPS.
Tommy John surgery is no joke. For a pitcher, the average recovery time can take 12 to 14 months minimum to heal. Fortunately for position players the average recovery time tends to be half as long as pitchers.
Even better news for Hoskins, the injury to his elbow is on his non-throwing hand, so recovery time could even be quicker than that. Note: Didi Gregorius and Andrew Knapp both had Tommy John Surgery.
