Hoffman Speaks Out On Being Claimed

All-time saves leader Trevor Hoffman discussed the odd situation he finds himself in: just a year after retaining 10-and-5 rights to veto any trade, he is waiting out a waiver claim from a still-unknown team, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

The claim, first reported by Foxsports.com, is unlikely to result in a trade. Hoffman, with a 1.85 ERA and 27 saves in 29 attempts, would net the Brewers two draft picks if Hoffman refused arbitration and signed with another team this offseason. Furthermore, Hoffman has said he'd like to remain in Milwaukee.

The claim comes as no surprise to Hoffman. As he told Haudricourt, “We’re 12 (games) out. I don’t think I’m the only person put through waivers.”
