Philadelphia Phillies manager Gabe Kapler was not too concerned with the status of Rhys Hoskins, who left Monday night’s 5-4 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers after taking a foul ball off his face.
Hoskins fouled a ball off his face on a 1-2 pitch with two outs in the top of the ninth while facing Kenley Jansen.
The Phillies youngster was bloodied after being hit and had to be replaced by Pedro Florimon.
After the game, Kapler was not overly concerned about the status of Hoskins, who has a cut on his lower lip, according to MLB.com reporter Todd Zolecki.
For the season, Hoskins is batting .230 with 13 doubles and six homers for a .770 OPS.
