Phillies slugger Rhys Hoskins has signed on with super agent Scott Boras, according to industry sources.
Boras represents some of biggest stars in baseball, including Bryce Harper. He also represents Phillies Jake Arrieta and Vince Velasquez.
Just last week, Harper and Hoskins shared a “man hug” on the field at Citizens Bank Park. Could the two someday be teammates? It is not out of the question. Harper will be a free agent this winter. The Phillies have big dollars and are expected to make a splash in free agency. They are expected to pursue Harper and Manny Machado. Harper is an outfielder, Machado an infielder.
Hoskins, 25, is in his first full season in the majors. Last week, he became the first Phillie to reach 30 homers since Ryan Howard in 2011.
Hoskins was previously represented by the Legacy Agency.
