Not Babe Ruth. Not Ted Williams. Not Mike Schmidt.
If you want to go more modern day, not Miguel Cabrera or Mike Trout, or even Aaron Judge.
None of those players have done what Phillies rookie Rhys Hoskins is doing. We are witnessing history in the making, and there are still 18 games left on the season.
With the two home runs he added Tuesday night, balls that traveled an estimated 844 feet combined, Hoskins stands at 16 home runs. That's in 32 games. He wasn't brought up until Aug. 10. He also has 34 RBIs. These are not misprints. Keep in mind he began his major league career 0 for 12, too.
Let's take a long drive, deep into the numbers for Hoskins. Watch these babies because they are way outta here.
• Fastest player to hit 16 home runs in MLB history (32 games). Courtesy of CSN’s Dan Roche, by comparison, here is the number of games it took these all-timers to reach 16 homers: Hank Aaron (137), Mike Schmidt (115), Barry Bonds (103), Willie Mays (55).
• MLB record for most homers after making debut Aug. 1 or later. Previous mark held by Ted Williams with 13 in 1953.
