Rhys Hoskins Signs Two-Year $34 Million Deal with Milwaukee Brewers

After spending five years with the Philadelphia Phillies, Rhys Hoskins found a new home in Milwaukee. The 30-year-old first baseman is set to join the Milwaukee Brewers after signing a new two-year deal, reportedly worth $34 million. Hoskins is set to receive a $12 million salary this season, followed by an $18 million salary in 2025 with a $4 million buyout. His new deal also comes with a mutual option after 2026, and he could earn another $18 million in 2026 with a $4 million buyout if both sides agree to exercise their options. General manager Matt Arnold confirmed Hoskins’ new deal and described him as a worthy addition to the Brewers’ roster. "We are excited to add the power bat, leadership, and experience of Rhys Hoskins to our lineup. Rhys is a proven winner who has worked tirelessly to get back on the field, and we look forward to his return to action this season," said Arnold in a statement. Hoskins is joining the Brewers after missing the entirety of the 2023 season after tearing the ACL in his left knee during a training session in March. He underwent surgery for a torn ACL but is expected to make a full recovery before joining the Brewers next season.
