Sources: Brewers, Hawkins agree on 2-year deal

BY Ken Rosenthal • December 9, 2009

The Brewers, making their second addition of the day, have reached agreement with free-agent reliever LaTroy Hawkins on a two-year, $7.5 million contract, major-league sources said Wednesday.

The deal is pending a physical.

Earlier in the day, the Brewers reached agreement with free-agent left-hander Randy Wolf on a three-year, $29.75 million deal.

The Brewers will be Hawkins' eighth team. He spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Twins before brief stints with the Cubs, Giants, Orioles, Rockies, Yankees and Astros.

He is 60-81 with a 4.51 ERA and 87 saves in his 15 seasons in the majors.
