The Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers both have made offers to closer Trevor Hoffman, according to sources familiar with the negotiations.

The Dodgers' offer is for one year with a one-year option, and is reportedly for more than $4 million. Details of the Brewers' offer are unknown.

Discarded by the San Diego Padres, Hoffman is thought to prefer Southern California, having spent 15½ of his 16 big-league seasons in San Diego.

The Dodgers are hoping to replace Takashi Saito, whom they non-tendered after he suffered from an elbow injury last season, and buy more time for Jonathan Broxton, who is developing into a closer.

The Brewers, who took a shot at Eric Gagne (and found he was better suited as a setup man) in 2008 and then had closer Salomon Torres retire after the season, also are rebuilding their bullpen.

Hoffman earned $7.5 million last season. The Padres offered less than $5 million to return in 2009, then rescinded the offer.

Hoffman, who accumulated all but two of his career 554 saves with the Padres, had 30 saves last season, but his 3.77 ERA was his highest in 13 years. He turned 41 in October.
