Greenville, NC - 2011 Shaker High School graduate Jeff Hoffman is expected to make his return to the mound for the East Carolina University Pirates next Friday at Southern Miss.
The ace right hander suffered soreness in his pitching arm last week, prompting the ECU coaching staff to skip Hoffman through two turns of the rotation as a precaution.
On Tuesday night, the former South Troy Dodger said his arm, "feels great", and that he doesn't anticipate any more issues.
Hoffman is projected as a top five overall pick in the 2014 MLB Player Draft, which begins on June 5.
