    Rhys Hoskins joins a special group with his 50th career home run

    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.
