MLB Hot Stove: Colorado Rockies Acquire Minor League OF Jamie Hoffmann

According the official Colorado Rockies twitter account, the Rockies have claimed minor league OF Jamie Hoffmann off waivers from the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Hoffmann, a drafted hockey player and an undrafted baseball player, hit 22 home runs and a .295/.355/.495 slash last year with the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Playing all three outfield positions for Albuquerque in 2011, Hoffmann is primarily a center fielder -- and an athletic oufielder -- as Hoffman stole 14 bases in 2011 and 17 in 2010.

The 27-year-old Hoffmann figures to start the year in Triple-A for the Rockies, but may compete for a fourth outfielder position on the Rockies' 25-man roster. Hoffman is already on the Rockies' 40-man roster.
