Brewers Working On Hoffman Timetable

The Milwaukee Brewers hope to devise a timetable sometime in the next few days for the return of closer Trevor Hoffman to action. Even with that schedule to be determined, it is obvious that Hoffman will not come close to being activated on Saturday, the first day he is eligible to come off the disabled list. The all-time saves leader was placed on the 15-day DL, retroactive to March 26, with a right oblique strain.

"Will he be ready on the 11th? Probably not," manager Ken Macha said Sunday before the Brewers worked out at AT&T Park. "Let's wait until he gets on the mound and then we'll start looking at what the possibilities are." Macha said Hoffman would throw off a flat surface at a longer distance during a workout Monday. "If he comes through that, Roger said they may be able to give you a plan for what's going to happen," he said, referring to trainer Roger Caplinger. "It's going to be awhile." In Hoffman's absence, Macha plans to give right-hander Carlos Villanueva first crack at closing games. Villanueva has not previously filled that role in the majors.
