Rockies, ex-Wizard LaTroy Hawkins complete deal

DENVER – Relief pitcher LaTroy Hawkins and the Colorado Rockies have completed their $2.5 million, one-year deal.

Hawkins, who turns 41 in December, will compete with Rex Brothers for the closer’s role at spring training. The right-handed Hawkins pitched for the New York Mets in 2013, going 3-2 with a 2.93 ERA and 13 saves.

This will be Hawkins’ second stop in the Mile High City. He played a big role in the bullpen in 2007, when the Rockies made their only run to the World Series before being swept by the Boston Red Sox.

The veteran reliever will be looking to pitch in a 20th straight major league season.
