Hoskins sidelined, CT scan shows a fractured jaw

Rhys Hoskins has a fractured jaw and is likely heading to the disabled list, according to MLB.com's Todd Zolecki.
Hoskins fouled a ball off his face in the ninth inning on Monday. He didn't start on Tuesday but did pick up a pinch-hit double in Tuesday's 6-1 win at Dodger Stadium.



Hoskins and manager Gabe Kapler originally believed the only issue to be a laceration inside the bottom lip, but multiple reports indicate a CT scan found the fracture earlier today.

There is no timetable yet on his return.

Hoskins has been struggling at the plate all month, hitting just .161 in May with two homers and nine RBIs.
