Jeff Hoffman has a strong start for Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Thursday, April 19, 2018.

All four of the Colorado Rockies’ full season minor league affiliates were in action on Thursday and collectively had quite the struggle, scoring just three total runs on the day—all by the Lancaster JetHawks. In a piece of better news, Jeff Hoffman had a strong start for Triple-A Albuquerque in what was technically a rehab start. Hoffman is working his way back from a shoulder injury suffered in spring training and, while he doesn’t currently have a spot in the Major League rotation, he would likely be one of the top options should a member of the Rockies rotation go down.

In his third start of the season, the 25-year-old righty allowed just a single run across 423 innings of work. He allowed just two hits, walked one, and struck out six. Coming off a tough season in which he had a 5.89 ERA across 9913 innings with the Rockies and a 4.71 ERA in 4923 innings with Albuquerque, it would certainly be a boon to the Rockies pitching staff if he’s able to get himself on track.
