Torpedoing an earlier report that he was signing with Cleveland, reliever Trevor Hoffman will remain with the Padres.

Ken Rosenthal (!) says the deal is for two years and $13.5 million, with an optional 3rd year, supposedly far less than Hoffman was offered by Cleveland.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman, however, so impressive in the Todd Solondz film “Happiness”, remains unsigned by any big league club.
