Philadelphia Phillies left fielder Rhys Hoskins is not in the lineup Tuesday at the Los Angeles Dodgers after fouling a ball off his face in the ninth inning of Monday's game in Los Angeles.

Hoskins, who sustained a cut on his bottom lip and had some swelling, told reporters he didn't expect to miss much time.

Earlier in the day, Hoskins tweeted to fans who had reached out to him.

Hoskins is hitting .229 with six home runs and 28 RBIs this season.
