Today, is that day. The Yankees picked him up in the Rule 5 draft.
The reality is about two years ago, I had this idea that I could be a prospector. I would look around and find a real sleeper. I am spending money on Jose Tabata cards, but he wasn't a sleeper. He was a Yankees prospect who went crazy and was recently named an Arizona Fall player of the year or something.
Still, I thought I could find someone good and latched on to Jamie Hoffman for about a week. I ended up with two xfractor, a refractor and two chrome cards of Hoffman's 2006 Bowman
Last year, he hit .278 with 10 homers and 71 RBIs in double-A.
This season, he split time and hit .291 in double- and triple-A with 10 homers and 64 RBIs. In 14 games with the Dodgers, he hit just .182 with a homer, two doubles and seven RBIs.
Hoffman is 25.
