Rockies | LaTroy Hawkins joins team

The Colorado Rockies and free-agent RP LaTroy Hawkins (Mets) agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal Monday, Nov. 18. According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, Hawkins will be the team's closer.

Fantasy Tip: The declaration of Hawkins as the closer might be jumping the gun a bit, as Rex Brothers certainly will have something to say about that in spring training. Hawkins is a retread with a lot of miles, and if he should win the job, don't expect him to be among the elite fantasy options. It is likely he is used in a setup role instead.
