With his solo shot in the first inning Wednesday night against the Mets, Rhys Hoskins joined a select group.
It was Hoskins' 50th career home run and it came in his 192nd major-league game. He is the seventh-fastest player in baseball history to 50 homers.
Here's the list:
Rudy York: 153 games
Mark McGwire: 161
Gary Sanchez: 161
Ryan Braun: 171
Aaron Judge: 174
Ryan Howard: 182
Rhys Hoskins: 192
Hoskins added a double in his second plate appearance, giving him 35 doubles and 32 homers on the season. The only other players in the majors with as many doubles and homers this season are J.D. Martinez, Francisco Lindor, Jose Ramirez, Javier Baez, Matt Carpenter and Trevor Story.
The only two who have also walked as much as Hoskins are Carpenter and Ramirez.
Hoskins has done a lot of damage in a limited sample vs. Noah Syndergaard. He's 4 for 8 with two homers, two doubles, four walks and a .667 OBP.
