The Rockies filled their glaring late-inning void in the bullpen, agreeing to terms with veteran right-handed reliever LaTroy Hawkins, the Rocky Mountain News has learned.
The Rockies are expected to announce the signing today. Hawkins received a one-year contract with a base salary of $3.5 million plus a mutual option, according to a source close to the negotiations.
Not a bad signing I guess. I don't particularly think Hawkins is that great, but he's a good veteren in the bullpen to have with all the youngsters the Rox have there right now.
