Padres Withdraw Hoffman Offer

A couple of developments from last night:

The Padres withdrew their $4 million offer to Trevor Hoffman. General Manager Kevin Towers said last week he was trying to work out an agreement to keep the closer, but he sent a text message to The Associated Press on Monday night confirming "our offer was withdrawn." Towers would not comment on whether the Padres are still interested in signing Hoffman.

The Phillies signed lefty reliever Scott Eyre (one year, $2 million). Eyre was 3-0 with a 1.88 ERA in 19 appearances for Philadelphia. The world champs also agreed to one-year deals with Rich Dubee, first base coach Davey Lopes and hitting coach Milt Thompson.

Oh, and the Phillies get the Sunday night baseball opener on April 5.
