LaTroy Hawkins Agrees To Deal With Yankees

By  | 

The New York Yankees have reached a preliminary agreement on a one-year, 3.75-million-dollar contract with right-handed reliever LaTroy Hawkins.

A baseball official familiar with the negotiations says the contract is subject to Hawkins passing a physical.

Hawkins was 2-and-5 with a 3.42 ERA for the Colorado Rockies last season. The Rockies declined his 3.75-million-dollar option and gave him a $250,000 buyout.
