On May 28, Philadelphia Phillies slugger Rhys Hoskins fractured his jaw when he fouled a ball off his own face against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Just 12 days later, Hoskins made his return from the disabled list for the Phillies’ game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.

That’s an incredibly early return from a broken jaw, but Hoskins is wearing a special helmet with double C-flaps.

And it seems the Magneto look is working for him!

In his second plate appearance, Hoskins hit a go-ahead three-run dinger:

The Brewers have since taken a huge lead (10-3 in the 7th), but for a moment the guy with a broken jaw was the hero.

Philadelphia has badly missed Hoskins’ bat and went 3-7 with him out of the lineup. But they entered play on Saturday 32-29 and just 3.5 games back in the NL East (3 back in the Wild Card), thanks to one of the best pitching staffs in baseball to this point.
