3 weeks agoAfter finishing 2018 with 34 home runs and a .246 batting average, many were expecting further growth from Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins. Instead, his peripherals stayed relatively the same, while his average and home runs dropped, causing him to finish 2019 with a line of .226-29-85-86-2. Some are still calling for growth from the 26-year-old slugger, but his underlying metrics suggest that this might be it. His wxOBA was 118th in the league and lower than his xOBA. His xBA was in the 4th percentile, while his xSLG was in the 36th and Hard Hit % was in the 48th. He did experience a three-point jump in his BB%, but his barrel% dropped and pop-up% increased. Overall, there's not a whole lot to be excited about other than the pop and counting stats. He should finish with a line close to .230-30-90-85, but in a league with power aplenty, Hoskins doesn't warrant being taken at his ADP high inside the top 100. He's more fitting around 130-140 range if you're desperate for power late.--Eric Samulski - RotoBaller
