Hoskins arrives early to work in outfield

Pitchers and catchers don't report to camp until Wednesday, but Rhys Hoskins has already been putting in work at the Phillies' facility in Clearwater, Fla., for a week.

The 24-year-old slugger reported early, as he prepares for his first full season in the Majors. Hoskins broke out as a rookie in 2017, setting a new record with 18 home runs in his first 50 games.

"It's always good coming from the West Coast to get out to Florida a little early, get acclimated so when camp comes and starts, we can hit the ground running," Hoskins said.
