07:07 AM ET 06.23 | The numbers that sentenced a venerable veteran to a demoted bullpen role are turning around, and closing games is again on the table. With the way Trevor Hoffman has been pitching lately, the possibility of the all-time saves leader closing for the Brewers again still exists, manager Ken Macha said Tuesday. Hoffman's most recent outing entering Tuesday, a scoreless eighth inning during a 1-1 ballgame on Sunday in Colorado, earned him the decision in the Brewers' eventual 6-1 victory. ... Since he gave up three runs and took the loss on June 1 against the Marlins, Hoffman has allowed only three hits. "After that outing, I'd feel pretty good about him coming in now," Macha said.
