Padres promote Hoffman to coordinator
September 12, 2013
SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Padres have promoted Trevor Hoffman to upper level pitching coordinator and special assistant to general manager Josh Byrnes.
Hoffman, the former star closer, will evaluate and help coordinate all pitchers at Double-A, Triple-A and the big league team.
Byrnes says Hoffman ``will be a key part of finishing the development of our younger pitchers.''
Byrnes cited Hoffman's expertise, passion and communication skills as being critical for helping young players.
Hoffman had been a special assistant to the president and CEO the last three years following his retirement in January 2011.
Hoffman's 601 career saves, in 677 chances, are the second-most in major league history.
