By Eric Jacinto
The Philadelphia Phillies, announced today that they have placed Rhys Hoskins on the 10-day DL for (Fractured Jaw) and recalled, #16 (Phillies Farm System), Dylan Cozens to the Majors. Cozens will most likely make his Major League debut sometime this weekend as the Phillies play the San Francisco Giants. Cozens will probably meet the team in San Francisco as the Phillies finish their four game series with the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight.
Dylan Cozens, is celebrating his 24th birthday today and what a birthday present to get called up to the major leagues. Cozens, was hitting .228 with ten home-runs with 25 RBIs and 26 runs scored and stole seven bases. Two years ago, Cozens hit .276 with 40 home-runs and driving in 125 runs for the Reading Phillies (Double-A team). 2016, was his best pro year of his career as he dropped off last season for Lehigh (Triple-A team) only hitting 27 homers, driving in 75 runs and stracking out 194 times.
Happy Birthday Dylan Cozens!
