DALLAS -- The Angels have signed themselves a free agent pitcher. Nope, not C.J. Wilson (yet?). Relief pitcher LaTroy Hawkins has signed with the Angels for one year and $3 million, reports Scott Miller of CBSSports.com.
Hawkins, 38, will join his ninth team, which is quite remarkable since he'd only played with one (the Twins) through age 30. He was terrible for the Brewers in 2010 before putting together a great bounce-back season in 2011. He had a 2.42 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 48 1/3 innings.
Unless the Angels swing a deal for a closer -- which feels unlikely -- Hawkins will serve as the setup man for young Jordan Walden.
