Phillies activate Hoskins (fractured jaw) from DL

The Philadelphia Phillies activated outfielder Rhys Hoskins from the 10-day disabled list on Saturday ahead of their game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Hoskins had been on the DL since May 30 with a fractured jaw.

Outfielder Dylan Cozens, who was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to fill Hoskins’ roster spot, was placed on the 10-day DL in a corresponding move.

Hoskins fractured his jaw when he fouled a pitch from hard-throwing Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen off his face.

Hoskins, 25, is hitting .233 with six home runs and 28 RBIs this season.

Cozens, 24, went 2-for-9 in his limited action, though he did slug a two-run home run against the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday.
