   Philadelphia Phillies After Bryce Harper moved to first base in 2023 and played the position at a high level, the writing is on the wall that the Phillies could move on from Rhys Hoskins next season. Hoskins will become a free agent in 2024 and didn’t play a single game last year due to a torn ACL suffered during spring training. Cold water was thrown on its market value.

He said Hoskins knew and made a good decision. So, with the former slugger considering wearing a different uniform next season, Andy McCullough of the Athletic reports that Hoskins will be going to the Phillies.
