It’s Trevor Time in Milwaukee

Right Field BleachersCorrespondent IJanuary 8, 2009

Trevor Time is about to meet Miller Time.

If reports are true (AP,, LA Times), the Brewers are about to sign all-time saves leader Trevor Hoffman.

Pending the financial details, I’m thrilled with this signing.

More details as they arrive.

UPDATE (9:30 a.m.): The Brewers have sent Hoffman an offer sheet and are awaiting Hoffman’s agent to confirm the deal is finalized, according to Adam McCalvy. This should get done early today if there are no hitches.

UPDATE 2 (9:45 a.m.): Buster Olney just said on 540 ESPN Hoffman has agreed to terms with Milwaukee and will become a Brewer.

UPDATE 3 (11 a.m.): Haudricourt says it’s a one-year deal worth $6 million plus up to an additional $1.5 million in incentives. There is a team option for 2010. The Brewers will not announce the signing until Hoffman passes a physical.

That’s about what I expected the financial terms to be. I think it’s a nice signing for the Crew. I hope we hear a lot of “Hell’s Bells” in Miller Park next year.

UPDATE 4 (12:45 p.m.): Haudricourt has an update and there is no club option for 2010. He adds that Hoffman will reach all of his incentives if he finishes 52 games this season and the incentives start kicking in at 35 games finished.
