numberFire: No one in baseball history has done what Rhys Hoskins is doing right now

It’s entirely possible that Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins is an alien.

That was the nickname given to him by his teammate, fellow rookie outfielder Nick Williams, after Hoskins slugged a pair of home runs on Tuesday night against the Miami Marlins, one of which tied the game in the bottom of the 10th inning. Oh, and the tying dinger was off of a 100 miles per hour pitch.

Wednesday night, Hoskins went deep again, his 17th home run in his first 33 games, and it came off of Marlins starter Dan Straily.

On the season, Hoskins is batting .310/.434/.784 with a weighted on base average (wOBA) of .488 and a weighted runs created (wRC+) of 205.
