Rockies managing RP LaTroy Hawkins' workload
by Elliot Smith |

The Rockies are being careful with veteran reliever LaTroy Hawkins, limiting his innings despite being in situations where they could use an experienced arm, per

In eight appearances since returning from the disabled list, Hawkins ERA has dipped from 10.50 to 5.68.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

Hawkins, who was replaced as closer by Adam Ottavino, said his biceps tendon started bothering him in mid-March and gradually got worse.

“Hopefully, rest will help it,” he said “I haven’t had this in a long time. The last time I had biceps tendinitis like this, most of these guys were in high school.”
