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.
The Reds placed Jeff Hoffman on the 10-day IL with a shoulder injury. Cionel Perez was called up to take Hoffman's place on the roster.
Hoffman left his Wednesday start with a shoulder injury, so it's no surprise that he'll hit the IL immediately. The exact nature of the injury is unclear, but teams are often careful with shoulder injuries for pitchers, so expect Hoffman to be out of action for at least a few weeks. The big right-hander currently sits with a 4.31 ERA and 1.46 WHIP.
Reds pitcher Jeff Hoffman left Wednesday's start with shoulder soreness. Hoffman lasted 1.1 innings after 46 pitches, two hits, two earned runs, and five walks.
Hoffman has struggled a bit with walks this year given his 12.4% walk rate. Outside of Hoffman's slider, which elicits a 43.3% whiff rate, the rest of his pitches aren't that great. This could open up a spot for Tejay Antone until Wade Miley returns from the IL if Hoffman misses time.
Jeff Hoffman (3-3) picked up the win Friday against the Brewers, allowing one run on two hits and four walks over five innings. He struck out seven.
This was Hoffman's first win since April 16, and ended his streak of four straight starts allowing at least two runs. Hoffman has posted a 6.13 ERA in May, a marked increase from the 3.33 ERA he posted in April.
Jeff Hoffman did not factor into the decision Sunday against the Rockies, allowing five runs (two earned) on five hits and three walks in four innings. He struck out five.
Hoffman got through three innings with little trouble, but Colorado exploded for five runs in the fourth. He's gone five starts without a win, and hasn't reached the fifth inning in any of his last four outings. He has a 4.67 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, and 32 strikeouts in 34.2 innings. He lines up to face the Brewers next weekend.
