Rhys Hoskins

It may be a bit harsh to include Hoskins on this list as no Phillies fans want him to fail for the rest of his career. Let's hope he makes his inclusion here look stupid with his tenure with the Milwaukee Brewers.

Hoskins signed with the Brewers for a two-year, $34 million contract with an opt-out after the first season. Even though he fills a need in Milwaukee, it is a highly risky move.

Hoskins is turning 31 and is coming off an ACL tear. There was speculation that he would have been back for the World Series if Philadelphia had made it last season. So, he is on track to be fully healthy next year.

Yet, even when fully healthy, things were never perfect with Hoskins in Philadelphia. Yes, he had 30 home runs in his last healthy season, but he also had career-low marks in hard-hit rate and fly-ball rate.

Plus, Bryce Harper stepping into playing first baseman and adding more versatility and defense than Hoskins in a position he has never played before doesn't bode well for Hoskins, especially after a serious injury.
