Jeff Hoffman (3-5) was saddled with the loss in his return from the IL Wednesday against the Mets. He allowed five runs on seven hits and three walks across four innings. He did not record a strikeout.
Hoffman struggled in his first start since returning from a shoulder injury. He flashed some upside earlier in the season, but generally his fantasy upside is limited. He tends to be wild, and doesn't put up good strikeout numbers. In 45 innings this season, he has a 5.20 ERA, 1.67 WHIP, and a 39:30 K:BB. He'll start again early next week against the Cubs.
