Hoskins has made a positive impression on manager Pete Mackanin early in camp, Ryan Lawrence of the Philly Voice reports. "I was told he's got a good idea at the plate and he sure looks like that, he sure looks like it," Mackanin said. "He's got a nice soft approach. It looks like he's really under control. That's good to see."
Miranda, who started Saturday's 13-3 Cactus League win over the Padres, impressed while giving up only one hit in two scoreless innings. "I thought he was really crisp," manager Scott Servais said. "He knows he's in there competing for a spot and it's good to see guys come out of the chute and get off on a good start."
