  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Reinstated from injured list

    Hoffman (undisclosed) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday.

    Hoffman landed on the COVID-19 injured list Friday, but his quick return likely means that he didn't test positive for the virus. He should be available out of the bullpen Wednesday against the Cubs after right-hander Jared Solomon was sent down.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Placed on injured list

    Hoffman was placed on the injured list for an unspecified reason Friday.

    Since the Reds didn't provide an injury designation for Hoffman on Friday, it seems likely that he's on the COVID-19 injured list. Assuming that's the case, he'll be eligible to return as soon as he clears the league's health and safety protocols, but his return timetable depends on whether he's tested positive for the virus. Right-hander Jared Solomon was recalled to take Hoffman's place in the rotation.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Gives up two runs

    Hoffman came on in relief of Reiver Sanmartin during Friday's loss to Atlanta and gave up two runs over 2.2 innings, allowing two hits and a walk without striking out a batter.

    Those two runs ultimately mattered, as a Reds rally in the ninth inning ended up one run short. At least Hoffman got some length in the game to save the back end of the bullpen, but he's in a role that provides little fantasy viability.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Inks deal with Cincy

    Hoffman agreed to a one-year, $925,000 contract with the Reds on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.com reports.

    Hoffman posted a 4.56 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 79:45 K:BB over 73 innings for Cincinnati last season, and he's now officially under contract for 2022. The 29-year-old struggled as a starter but pitched better out of the bullpen, and he figures to remain as a reliever this season.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Dormant since shelling

    Hoffman hasn't pitched in the last two weeks since getting shelled against the Tigers on September 3, when he gave up four runs and served up two homers over 1.2 innings.

    The Reds have been carrying an eight-man bullpen and yet Hoffman hasn't been used at all. What's strange is that was basically Hoffman's only bad outing as a reliever -- in 18.0 previous innings of relief, he had a 1.00 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with a 24:7 K:BB. Nonetheless, manager David Bell hasn't had the confidence to use him during a tough stretch for the Reds.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Moving to bullpen

    Hoffman will shift to a bullpen role going forward, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    Hoffman returned from a shoulder injury to start Wednesday's game against the Mets, but he gave up five runs on seven hits and three walks in four innings. The right-hander struggled with command during his start and only threw 44 of his 82 pitches for strikes. Vladimir Gutierrez will take his place in the rotation starting Tuesday against the Cubs.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Handed loss in return

    Hoffman (3-5) took the loss Wednesday as the Reds were routed 7-0 by the Mets, giving up five runs on seven hits and three walks over four innings. He failed to strike out a batter.

    The right-hander wasn't really fooling anyone in his first appearance since May 26, as he tossed only 44 of 82 pitches for strikes and served up two homers. Hoffman hadn't allowed multiple homers in any of his 10 starts prior to landing on the IL with a shoulder impingement, but his control and command were both shaky prior to the injury. On the season, he sports a 5.20 ERA and 39:30 K:BB through 45 innings.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Reinstated prior to start

    Hoffman (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's start against the Mets.

    Hoffman had been on the injured list since late May due to a right shoulder impingement, but he made four rehab starts at Triple-A Louisville prior to his activation. He most recently pitched July 7, when he tossed 82 pitches across 5.1 innings during his rehab outing. Manager David Bell said that the Reds will consider using a six-man rotation going forward, but it's not yet clear whether Hoffman will remain in the rotation following Wednesday's start.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Starting Wednesday

    Hoffman (shoulder) confirmed Saturday that he's set to return from the injured list to start Wednesday against the Mets, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Reds manager David Bell hinted earlier in the day that the team was looking at temporarily going to a six-man rotation, and it appears that will indeed be the case. It's not clear whether Hoffman will be in line for multiple starts or if he'll make just one before retreating to the bullpen. It's also possible he sticks around as a starter while Vladimir Gutierrez loses his place, though Gutierrez's 4.29 ERA in nine starts this season beats Hoffman's 4.61 mark in 10 trips to the mound.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Temporary six-man rotation

    The Reds will consider going with a temporary six-man rotation when Hoffman (shoulder) comes off the IL next week, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Manager David Bell wants to give Tyler Mahle and Luis Castillo a couple of extra days given that they didn't get much more than their usual rest after last weekend's series in Milwaukee. "There is a chance we would add (Hoffman) in for a couple of reasons," Bell said. "Some of our starters with (Tyler) Mahle pitching tonight, Luis (Castillo) pitching tomorrow, they're getting an extra day or two, but not an extra four days. There was only so many guys we could do that with, where we could give them a larger break."

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Another rehab start coming

    Hoffman (shoulder) is scheduled to make a rehab start Friday for High-A Dayton.

    Hoffman will be pitching for the first time since July 7, when he tossed 5.1 innings (82 pitches) in his fourth rehab outing for Triple-A Louisville. At this point, Hoffman appears to be fully ramped up for starting duty, but the Reds don't seem to have a spot available for him in the big-league rotation. Rookie Vladimir Gutierrez has emerged as a reliable No. 5 starter since Hoffman landed on the shelf in late May with a right shoulder impingement.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Making fourth rehab start

    Hoffman (shoulder) will make a fourth rehab start with Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Hoffman has gone 10 innings without allowing an earned run during his rehab assignment. Despite the good results, the Reds don't seem to be in a hurry to bring him back or decide whether he'll start or relieve when he does return. They're also getting Michael Lorenzen back soon and have gotten good work out of Vladimir Gutierrez, which might explain their lack of urgency.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Third rehab start awaits

    Reds manager David Bell said Monday that Hoffman (shoulder) will make a third rehab start for Triple-A Louisville later this week, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Hoffman's second rehab outing came Sunday, when he struck out six over four scoreless frames. He was capped at 49 pitches in that outing, so the Reds may want to see him increase his count to the 60-to-75 range before activating him from the 10-day injured list prior to the All-Star break. The Reds have yet to determine Hoffman's role upon returning from the IL, but he would have to settle for bullpen duties if the club opts to keep Vladimir Gutierrez in the rotation.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Starting rehab assignment

    Hoffman (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

    Hoffman has missed nearly a month after exiting a late-May start with a sore shoulder. That could mean he requires multiple rehab outings before being activated from the injured list, though the Reds have yet to specify when they expect him back.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Rehab assignment coming next week

    Hoffman (shoulder) has been throwing bullpen sessions at Triple-A Louisville this week and is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with the affiliate next week, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Hoffman, who hasn't pitched since May 27 due to right shoulder soreness, will likely make one or two rehab starts for Louisville while the Reds weigh whether to bring him back as a member of the rotation or bullpen once he's activated. Before landing on the shelf, the right-hander was serviceable but unspectacular over his 10 starts, posting a 4.61 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 41 innings. Meanwhile, Vladimir Gutierrez (2.74 ERA and 1.09 through four starts) has been impressive as Hoffman's replacement in the rotation, and his quality work may be enough to keep him ahead of Hoffman in the pecking order when both are healthy.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Rehab assignment not imminent

    Manager David Bell said Tuesday that Hoffman (shoulder) could go on a rehab assignment later this month, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Bell was far from specific in updating the right-hander's return timeline, but it appears evident that he's a ways out from going on a rehab assignment. Given that he'll likely need to make multiple rehab outings when that time comes, a mid-to-late-June return to the Reds seems like the absolute best-case scenario at this point.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Diagnosed with shoulder impingement

    Hoffman was diagnosed with a right shoulder impingement Thursday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    Hoffman was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, but his shoulder injury won't require surgery. The right-hander is heading back to Cincinnati to be further examined, and a better idea of his return timetable could come into focus once his visit with the medical staff is complete.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Lands on injured list

    Hoffman (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    Hoffman left his start Wednesday against the Nationals with right shoulder soreness, and the issue is evidently serious enough to cause him to miss at least one start. His expected return date is not yet clear. The righty is pitcher better than usual this season after finally escaping Coors Field, but his 4.61 ERA and 1.59 WHIP are still not particularly impressive. Cionel Perez was called up in a corresponding move.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Nursing sore shoulder

    Hoffman exited Wednesday's start against the Nationals with right shoulder soreness, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The 28-year-old struggled with his command Wednesday and issued five walks before being lifted with the injury after 1.1 innings. Hoffman's availability for his next turn through the rotation is in question due to the injury.

  • Reds' Jeff Hoffman: Departs with injury

    Hoffman was removed from Wednesday's start against the Nationals with an apparent injury, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The 28-year-old threw only 20 of 46 pitches for strikes while walking five batters over 1.1 innings before exiting with the athletic trainer. It's unclear if the unspecified injury will affect Hoffman's next turn through the rotation.
