PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Twenty-six days before the pitchers and catchers report to Clearwater, the Phillies are still waiting to hear from the two biggest names on the free agent market: Manny Machado and Bryce Harper.
Both have received offers from the Fightins’.
CBS3 caught up with Rhys Hoskins and asked him about the Phillies trying to sign both guys.
“Well, I think they are two players that are generational talent and I think anytime you have an opportunity to add a guy like that to your team you should take it. They’re really good players and they make any team they’re on that much better,” said Hoskins.
On Friday, Hoskins accepted the “Champion of Spirit Award” for his commitment to the Muscular Dystrophy Association in Spring Garden.
In the past, Hoskins has hosted children who suffer from the neuromuscular disease at a meet-and-greet and Phillies game.
The Phillies slugger has also fundraised for the 2018 MDA Muscle Walk
