The Philadelphia Phillies moved Rhys Hoskins to first base after his disastrous season defensively in left field last year, and the veteran has been an adventure at his new position, too.

Hoskins made his fifth error of the season in the top of the first inning of Philly’s game against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday, and it was an embarrassing one. He thought he had scooped up a weak ground ball from Nolan Arenado and applied the tag, only the ball was never in his glove.

Hoskins is hitting .267 with 11 home runs and 36 RBI this season, so it goes without saying that he is a valuable piece of the Phillies’ lineup. It’s unfortunate that they play in the National League, because he has designated hitter written all over him.
