Hawkins and Yankees agree to deal

The Associated Press is reporting that the Yankees and reliever LaTroy Hawkins have agreed on a one-year, $3.75 million deal.

He was 2-5 with a 3.42 ERA in 55 1-3 innings pitched for Colorado last year.

It's only a one-year deal, so the Yankees won't be on the hook for that much if he's another Kyle Farnsworth. They needed bullpen help, and there wasn't much out there, so I can't blame the Yankees for targeting Hawkins. Hopefully it works out in the end, but I'm not extremely confident he'll get the job done.

At least they learned from their mistake and didn't give a mediocre reliever a multi-year deal.
