Hoskins avoids arbitration with Phillies
The Phillies on Friday avoided arbitration with four players, including veteran first baseman Rhys Hoskins. 

Per multiple reports, Hoskins agreed to a one-year, $12 million deal with the club. He made nearly $8 million last season. 

The club also worked out deals with Ranger Suarez ($2.95 million), Edmundo Sosa ($950,000), and newly acquired reliever Gregory Soto ($3.92 million). 

The club failed to work out deals with relievers Jose Alvarado and Seranthony Dominguez, so the next step for resolution is an arbitration hearing likely to be held in February. 

Per sources, Alvarado is seeking $3.7 million, and Dominguez is looking for $2.9 million. The negotiation process is allowed to continue, so it's possible deals are reached before a formal hearing. 

The Phillies last had an arbitration hearing in 2020 with J.T. Realmuto. The club won the judgment paying $10 million, while Realmuto was seeking $12.4 million. 

Hoskins and Alvarado are both eligible for free agency following the 2023 season.
