MIAMI — Phillies slugger Rhys Hoskins left Wednesday-evening’s win over the Miami Marlins after being hit by a pitch on the right hand.

Hoskins was hit by Miami’s Edward Cabrera in the top of the third inning.

Hoskins stayed in the game and played first base in the bottom of the third. He got out before the bottom of the fourth. Alec Bohm advanced from third base and played first base after Hoskins’ exit. Edmundo Sosa played third base.

Hoskins’ first diagnosis was a bruise. X-rays were negative.

“He will probably miss a day because he is in pain,” said manager Rob Thomson.

The Phillies have been hit hard by hand injuries this season. Bryce Harper missed two months with a broken left thumb. Jean Segura missed two months with a broken right index finger. Hoskins is second on the team in home runs (28) and OPS (.809) and third in RBIs (71).

No break was a good break.

“Every time a man takes one and goes in…” Harper said, shaking his head. “Look at me this year. Seggy too. It’s a shame it happened, but he’s okay. It’s good to know there’s no break.’
