Hawkins isn't expected to be traded by the Rockies before the July 31 deadline, CBSSports.com reports.
Signed to a one-year deal in the offseason, Hawkins has been indispensable out of the bullpen for the Rockies, who have gotten precious few good performances from their relievers this season. After tossing two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 16-inning loss to the Cubs, Hawkins sports a 2.92 ERA and 1.16 WHIP to go along with 17 saves. While he would certainly represent an upgrade in middle relief for several contenders, Hawkins carries an affordable $2.25 million club option for 2015, when the Rockies will hope to be more competitive in the NL West race.
