Matt Hoffman
2013 Rank: 14
ETA: 2013
Position: LHP
Age: 24, DOB: 11/08/1988
Bats: L, Throws: L
Height: 6' 2", Weight: 225
Drafted: 2007, 26th (811) - DET
Twitter: @Matt_Hoffman44
Scouting Grades* (present/future): Fastball: 5/5 | Slider: 4/5 | Changeup: 4/5 | Control: 4/5 | Overall: 4/5

Things were looking good for the big, strong lefty when he was added to the 40-man roster following the 2011 season, his first as a reliever in Triple-A. He turned in a solid, yet unspectacular season, year two in Toledo, and then was designated for assignment to make room for catcher Brayan Pena on the roster. He can be up to 93 mph with his fastball at times with decent movement. He mixes in a slider and changeup, both of which can be average and his ability to keep the ball down enables him to elicit groundball outs. Even though he’s not on the roster, he still has the chance to be an effective lefty out of a big league bullpen soon.
