SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres have promoted Trevor Hoffman to upper level pitching co-ordinator and special assistant to general manager Josh Byrnes.

Hoffman, the former star closer, will evaluate and help co-ordinate all pitchers at Double-A, Triple-A and the big league team.

Byrnes says Hoffman "will be a key part of finishing the development of our younger pitchers."

Byrnes cited Hoffman's expertise, passion and communication skills as being critical for helping young players.

Hoffman had been a special assistant to the president and CEO the last three years following his retirement in January 2011.

Hoffman's 601 career saves, in 677 chances, are the second-most in major league history.
