Phillies Top Power Prospect Rhys Hoskins Owns The Maine Monster.

Can’t remember the last time the Phillies system had the leader in home runs in all of minor league baseball with Rhys Hoskins’ 20 homers at AA.  Jose Pujols is the leader in homers at A- with 13 and the hottest long ball hitter at A+ is Zach Green who has hit homers in each of his last three games for 10 on the season.

Last night in Portland, Maine Hoskins again hit a three-run homer over the Maine Monster for No. 20. Watch the Video HERE.  It was Hoskins third long ball this season over the Maine Monster.  Watch his two previous blasts, one back on April 29 HERE and May 1st, HERE.(Fast forward to the 7:10 minute  mark to see)

Hoskins has hit a homer in each of his last three games to drive in sixth runs.  In addition to leading all of minor league baseball in homers, he is now tied for second in RBIs in the International League with 59.

His 20 homers allowed him to pass teammate Dylan Cozens who has 19 homers for the minor league lead.

Not to be out done, the Clearwater Threshers, Zach Green, also went deep for his third game in a row last night.  He now has 10 homers and 45 RBIs to lead the Threshers in both categories in only 59 games.

In Green’s last four gamers he has gone 9 for 21 with three homers and 12 RBIs.

What a power lineup the Phillies could have in a year or two with the likes of Hoskins Cozens and Green in a major league lineup.

It will take some creative thinking to get both of them in a Phillies major league lineup such as moving Hoskins to left and Green to second. With Cozens in right that would be some power lineup.

In any event they are dominating minor league baseball in homers right now !
