Brewing a Winner? Milwaukee Adds LaTroy Hawkins to the Mix

According to reports, including ESPN's Jayson Stark, the Milwaukee Brewers have landed another veteran free agent.

Reliever LaTroy Hawkins has agreed to a two-year, $7.5 million deal to potentially close in Milwaukee.

Hawkins was in Houston last year and rebounded from a stretch of rough seasons starting when he left Minnesota for the Chicago Cubs.

In 2009, Hawkins was 1-4 with 11 saves and 19 holds in 65 games. He had a 2.15 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP on the campaign.

He split 2008 between the New York Yankees and Astros after spending 2007 in Colorado and 2006 in Baltimore. In the middle of 2005, the Cubs traded him to the San Francisco Giants for David Aardsma and Jerome Williams.

The Brewers have been perhaps the most aggressive team at the Winter Meetings with free agents, already adding starter Randy Wolf and catcher Greg Zaun.
