Colorado Rockies: Ranking the 40-Man Roster: 16-20
Jeff Hoffman: Starting Pitcher Points: 101 Highest Rank: 11 Lowest Rank: 23
Jeff Hoffman has the unenviable task of living up to being traded for one of the top five players in franchise history. He has the potential to not only break the starting rotation, but become one of the premiere arms in the rotation alongside Jon Gray.
Hoffman has some things to prove before he becomes a mainstay in this rotation. He finished the season 0-4 with a 4.88 ERA. His last game against the Brewers were a flash of his potential. He struck out seven allowing one run off only two hits.
Last season Hoffman talked about how he thinks debuting in the majors towards the end of the season like Jon Gray did, will be beneficial because he will know what to expect coming into his first full season. He also is talking to Gray and getting advice from him.
These rookies are growing and improving together. The Rockies young pitching is finally starting to be something to look forward to.
