Hoffman was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday. Hoffman was up for one start and failed to impress, lasting just 3.1 innings and giving up three runs on eight hits Friday against the Mariners. He was sent down to make room for Jon Gray, who was recalled in a corresponding move.
Hoffman lasted just 3.1 innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Friday, giving up three earned runs on eight hits, striking out two and walking one as the Rockies eventually triumphed 10-7. Making a spot start after Antonio Senzatela was scratched due to a blister, Hoffman made an early exit against Seattle after he conceded eight hits and was chased from the contest after throwing 77 pitches. The outing gives him a 9.35 ERA and a 2.54 WHIP at the big-league level this season, so he hasn't shown he can deliver impactful fantasy numbers even if he does end up staying in the bigs for another turn in the rotation.
Hoffman will be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque and take the mound versus Seattle on Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Antonio Senzatela was scratched from the start due to a right middle finger blister. Across five appearances with the Rockies this year, Hoffman has posted a 10.13 ERA over 5.1 innings of relief. This will be his first major-league start of the year, though he's served exclusively as a starter for Albuquerque this season.
Hoffman was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday, Nick Groke of The Athletic Denver reports. Hoffman made five appearances for the Rockies after being called up June 8, but he was tagged for six earned runs over 5.1 innings -- to be fair, five earned runs came in one game -- so the team decided to send him down to open up room for returning relievers Mike Dunn and Scott Oberg. Hoffman figures to be back with the Rockies at some point this summer.
Hoffman was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday. Mike Dunn was placed on the disabled list with a left rhomboid strain, and Hoffman was promoted as a corresponding move. He has not pitched since June 1, so he will be available out of the bullpen this weekend against the Diamondbacks. Hoffman has a 4.29 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 61:25 K:BB in 50.1 innings (10 starts) in the Pacific Coast League.
