2017 Moderate 50 Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Plus bat speed; quiet hands; moderate barrel control; leveraged swing; extension; back shoulder will drop ocassionally; hips torque without leaking; leg kick with moderate load; stays balanced; seasoned approach; recognizes spin.
Power 50 Plus raw power; leveraged swing with plus bat speed; will play to average in-game.
Baserunning/Speed 20 4.50+ home to first; speed is not a part of his game.
Glove 50 Agile for a large player; displays average range; soft hands; first base profile.
Arm 60 Plus arm strength; not an asset as a first basemen.

Hoskins displayed an impressive game during his series against Hagerstown. While the profile is strictly first base, I think he will hit enough to provide average value at the position. His swing lacks any significant hole and he displayed consistent mechanics. There is some risk due to a lack of experience against higher competition.

Round Drafted: 5th round, 2014
Why: Seasoned bat with potential to hit at an average level.
