Hoffman was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday.
Hoffman was unable to complete three innings Thursday and has a 6.75 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in seven major-league starts this season, so he'll make his way back to the minors. It's not clear who will slot into the starting rotation Tuesday for the Rockies.
Hoffman allowed one run on three hits with five strikeouts and four walks across 2.2 innings during a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Thursday.
Although he only yielded one run, Hoffman allowed seven base runners in under three innings. It took him 82 pitches to earn eight outs. His ERA did manage to decrease, but he is still 1-3 with a 6.75 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 36 strikeouts in 33.1 innings this season. His next start will be Tuesday at the Giants.
Hoffman held the Padres to one run on three hits and two walks while striking out two over five innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Friday.
Hoffman had given up at least five runs in three of his five starts, but tightened his reins to keep the Padres in check, surrendering his only run via a solo shot to Hunter Renfroe in the second inning. The 26-year-old has struggled to make much of a positive impact on the Rockies' rotation this season, compiling a 7.04 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 31:9 K:BB over seven appearances (six starts). Up next, Hoffman will take on the Diamondbacks on Thursday.
Hoffman (1-3) gave up six runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven through 4.2 innings to take the loss against the Mets on Sunday.
It was trouble from the beginning as Hoffman gave up a three-run home run in the first inning and continued to give up hard contact throughout this outing. He did force 12 swinging strikes, but it just wasn't enough to make up for the repeated mistakes. His experience in the majors has not been impressive this season as he has given up at least five runs in three of his five starts and has an 8.06 ERA. Hoffman will look for better results in his next start Friday hosting the Padres.
Hoffman (1-2) allowed five earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out seven across six innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Cubs.
Hoffman was beaten by the long ball, with three of his five earned runs coming from homers. The 26-year-old made his first road start of the season -- getting away from the treacherous Coors Field -- though that didn't solve his home-run problem (he's let the opposition take him deep at least once in each of his last three starts). He now has a 7.29 ERA and 1.48 WHIP across 21 innings. More positively, he has a 22:5 K:BB, skills that indicate he may deserve better results. He'll look to turn things around in his next start, currently scheduled for Sunday at the Mets.
Hoffman (1-1) earned the win Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six through five innings of work.
The win was Hoffman's first since 2017. The 26-year-old has failed to make a major impact since then, spending most of his time in the minors. Hoffman got the call up again May 24 and had some trouble with location in his last outing, but managed to turn things around Wednesday with pivotal strikeouts to work his way out of jams. Despite the improvement, Hoffman's ERA still sits at an ugly 7.20 with a 1.60 WHIP through three starts. His status in the rotation is uncertain, but with Kyle Freeland and Antonio Senzatela struggling, Hoffman has a shot to make another start again soon.
Hoffman allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks over five innings in Friday's 8-6 win over the Orioles. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.
Making his second start of the season, with the last coming April 23, Hoffman struggled but the Rockies were able to cover the damage to get him off the hook for the loss. Hoffman owns an 8.10 ERA and 1.50 WHIP this season in the majors, and it's unclear whether he'll remain as the Rockies' fifth starter or head back to Triple-A Albuquerque to make room for another arm.
Hoffman was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to start Friday's game against the Orioles, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
As anticipated, Hoffman has been promoted to the big leagues and will toe the rubber for the series opener. He started one game earlier in the season April 23 against the Nationals, surrendering four runs while punching out six over five innings. Yency Almonte was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Hoffman will likely be called up to start Friday's game against the Orioles, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Hoffman, a former top prospect, has been a strikeout machine at Triple-A and in his lone MLB start this season, tallying 50 strikeouts in 40.2 innings across the two stops. However, he has not been successful at preventing runs in his harsh pitching environments, giving up 34 earned runs over those 40.2 innings. Given that it is a home start, he is a very unappealing streamer, assuming he is indeed tabbed as Friday's starter.
Hoffman could be promoted from Triple-A Albuquerque to start Saturday's game against the Orioles, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Due to a slew of off days, the Rockies have been able to get by without a fifth starter since Tyler Anderson was demoted to Triple-A on May 4. A need for another starter will finally arise Saturday, and Hoffman looks like the top candidate to fill the opening in light of his recent turnaround with Albuquerque. Over his last four outings, Hoffman has posted a 4.50 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 31:9 K:BB across 24 innings. With Anderson having since developed a knee injury that will require potential season-ending surgery, Hoffman could be in line for an extended stay in Colorado if he fares respectably in his initial outings.
Hoffman struck out 10 over 5.2 innings Sunday in Triple-A Albuquerque's 5-3 win over Fresno. He gave up two runs while scattering four hits and two walks.
Hoffman has rebounded from a rough start to the Pacific Coast League season to accrue 27 strikeouts against five walks over his last three appearances. The improved control Hoffman has displayed of late could put him in position for a promotion to the big club when the Rockies require a fifth starter again May 25. Colorado is currently getting by with a four-man rotation following the demotion of Tyler Anderson, who hasn't pitched for the Triple-A club after experiencing left knee issues.
Hoffman was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday.
With Kyle Freeland (finger) expected to miss just one start, Hoffman is no longer needed in the rotation following Wednesday's spot start. As such, he'll return to the minors to remain stretched out while Daniel Murphy (finger) takes his place on the active roster. The right-hander allowed four runs on six hits over five innings while striking out six in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.
Hoffman (0-1) took the loss Tuesday, giving up four runs on six hits over five innings while striking out six as the Rockies fell 6-3 to the Nationals.
A four-run third inning did Hoffman in, but he otherwise was solid in the Coors Field spot start. He could return to Triple-A Albuquerque if Kyle Freeland (blister) misses the minimum as expected, but Hoffman would also be on schedule to take Sunday's start if the Rockies decide to replace the struggling Tyler Anderson in the rotation.
Hoffman will be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to make a spot start Tuesday against Washington, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
With Kyle Freeland (finger) on the 10-day injured list, Colorado has chosen Hoffman to toe the rubber Tuesday night. The 26-year-old righty hasn't found much success in the minors so far in 2019, posting a 13.89 ERA with a 13:8 K:BB over 11.2 innings of work (two starts).
Hoffman could be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to make a spot start Tuesday against the Nationals, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Kyle Freeland was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday after he was revealed to have suffered a blister on his left middle finger, creating the need for a temporary addition to the rotation. With long man Chad Bettis making a 37-pitch relief appearance in Monday's series opener, the Rockies don't appear to have any viable replacements for Freeland on the active roster, so look for the team to delve into the minor-league ranks for a spot starter. Hoffman, who last pitched for the Triple-A club April 16, represents one of the more logical fill-in options by virtue of having a fresh arm and already possessing a 40-man roster spot.
Hoffman's scheduled start against the Braves on Wednesday has been postponed due to rain, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.
The game has been rescheduled for Aug. 26. Hoffman was expected to be summoned from the minors to make a spot start in place of the injured Tyler Anderson (knee), but is no longer needed -- at least for the time being -- thanks to the postponement. According to Thomas Harding of MLB.com, the Rockies will skip Hoffman's turn in the rotation and give Jon Gray the ball Thursday on regular rest. The young right-hander could be in line for a start early next week if Anderson isn't ready to return from the IL when first eligible.
Hoffman is expected to be called up to start Wednesday against the Braves, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Hoffman is expected to start in place of Tyler Anderson, who is on the injured list due to left knee inflammation. He hasn't been officially called up yet, as the Rockies may be waiting to see whether or not inclement weather in Wednesday's forecast will allow the game to be played.
Hoffman was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Chad Bettis (neck) was named the team's fifth starter Sunday, leaving Hoffman to open the season in the Isotopes' rotation. The flamethrowing right-hander posted a 6.63 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 17:5 K:BB through 19 innings this spring. He figures to be one of the next men up should an opening arise in the big-league rotation.
Hoffman is among the pitchers scheduled to pitch in the Rockies' exhibition opener Saturday versus the Diamondbacks, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Chad Bettis will start the Cactus League contest, with Hoffman slated to follow either directly behind him or after another reliever. Incidentally, both Bettis and Hoffman -- along with Antonio Senzatela -- will be vying for the final spot in the Colorado rotation throughout the spring. Of the trio, Hoffman pitched the least at the big-league level in 2018 (8.2 innings), but he's the most impressive of the group in terms of raw stuff thanks to a fastball that was clocked as high as 98.6 miles per hour during a training session this offseason, per Saunders.
Hoffman is in the running for a back-end rotation spot this spring, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Hoffman had a lackluster 2018 showing, struggling to a 4.94 ERA in 105 Triple-A innings and a 9.35 ERA in 8.2 MLB innings. However, he was once one of the Rockies' top prospects and put up decent strikeout numbers in the minors last year (8.7 K/9). He has an outside chance to crack the Opening Day roster, but he'll need to outperform Chad Bettis and Antonio Senzatela to garner a rotation spot.
