Being at work, I can’t really go into detail about Hoffman. Greg Fertel at Pending Pinstripes, lucky for all of us, has done it for me.
My opinion: Hoffman’s pick screams “right-handed caddy for Granderson” to me. He can play a very good center field, had a good platoon split in 2009, and has the experience to stick to the roster. Basically, he can do everything that Gardner can except swipe bags, and for that reason Brett Gardner’s spot on the roster might be in trouble. For a Rule V pick, even the first overall, that’s a pretty good day.
Zach Kroenke was a bit of a loss, and I wouldn’t have been surprised to see the Yankees pick him with the 1st overall pick. He’ll get lefties out for Arizona, and that’s about it. Luckily for the Yankees, Kroenke will be followed in the system by Wilkins De La Rosa and Michael Dunn, so there isn’t a lot to worry about here. The Yankees certainly have faith in Damaso Marte now.
K. Teixeira isn’t much of a loss. He’s maybe our 6th or 7th best depth reliever.
