"We're very pleased," said General Manager Kevin Towers, who listed keeping Hoffman as his first priority of the offseason.
Hoffman, 36, is guaranteed $2.5 million in 2004. If he finishes a certain number of games, he can lock in a salary of up to $6 million for 2005.
Hoffman was paid $9 million this year. On the disabled list until September after two shoulder operations, the four-time All-Star came back with eight scoreless outings out of nine.

The deal only contains $500,000 in incentives, so Hoffman took quite the discount to stay in San Diego. The option for 2005 will become guaranteed if the closer reaches certain performance levels. Padres GM Kevin Towers would not be specific, but he said the numbers should be easily attained if Hoffman has a good season.
