A New Nickname for Rhys Hoskins? Scott Kingery Likes ‘Big Burly'

Second baseman prospect Scott Kingery was in town on Tuesday night to collect his Paul Owens Award given to the top position player in the Philadelphia Phillies minor league system every season.

He was a guest on Philly Sports Talk from Citizens Bank Park and during the Quick Six segment was asked by Michael Barkann what his favorite Rhys Hoskins nickname was?

"You've got Rhys Lightning. You've got Big Hos. Anything that sticks out to you," Barkann asked.

"On the back of one of his baseball cards it calls him a big burly first baseman. I think we need to make that stick. Big Burly something like that," Kingery said.

The big burly first baseman delivered yet again last night when he came through with 4 RBIs on the night, three of them coming in the seventh inning on a huge tie-breaking, three-run double that put the Phils up for good.

Much more on Hoskins' big night right here.

What are your thoughts on "Big Burly?" Any chance to stick?
