Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins exited his team's Grapefruit League game against the Detroit Tigers on Thursday with an apparent left knee injury.
With the Phillies leading 1-0 in the top of the second, Hoskins ran behind first base to field a Austin Meadows chopper before falling to the ground in obvious pain.
The 30-year-old Hoskins was then carted off the field.
A native of Sacramento, Hoskins is set to enter his seventh big-league season.
In 156 games last season, Hoskins batted .246 with 30 home runs, 79 runs batted in and a .794 OPS.
The Phillies are set to open their 2023 campaign on Marc. 30 against the Texas Rangers.
