Yankees Return Hoffmann To Dodgers

The Yankees Rule 5 pick Jamie Hoffmann cleared waivers and was returned to the Dodgers, reports Chad Jennings of The Journal News.  New York essentially acquired Hoffmann for Brian Bruney back in December, and he was was battling with Marcus Thames for the chance to serve as the Yanks' right-handed bench bat.  Neither player has done much in Spring Training so far.

Hoffmann, 25, hit .284/.360/.455 for the Dodgers' Triple A club last year while playing center and right field.
