Report: Yankees Closing In On Hawkins

Friday, December 7, 2007

The unknown team that engaged in talks with the agent of LaTroy Hawkins is believed to be the Yankees, according to the New York Daily News. I talked with someone close to Hawkins who said they were working on a contract the Meetings, so I expect a deal to get wrapped up soon. The Tigers were also showing interest in Hawkins, who is believed to be seeking a one to two year deal, worth 3 million dollars annually.
