LaTroy Hawkins struck out the side to earn the save against the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
It wasn't exactly a murderer's row of hitters -- Hawkins had to face Alfredo Marte, Jake Lamb and Tuffy Gosewisch in the 10th inning -- but it was still nice to see from the 41-year-old. Hawkins now owns a 2.93 ERA and 18 saves through 40 innings this season. Aug 10 - 11:03 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies are expected to hang on to LaTroy Hawkins.

Hawkins is 41 and would have some value on a contending team in a middle relief role, but the Rockies like his veteran presence and plan to pick up his $2.25 million club option for 2015. Hawkins has saved 17-of-18 chances this season while sporting a 3.09 ERA. The Pirates and a couple other clubs had expressed interest.

According to's Thomas Harding, the Pirates have interest in Rockies closer LaTroy Hawkins.

The Bucs are looking for some easy and inexpensive ways to upgrade their bullpen, and the 41-year-old Hawkins fits that mold. He has posted a 3.09 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 35 innings this season out of the Colorado bullpen on a salary of just $2.25 million. Hawkins also carries a $2.25 million club option for the 2015 campaign.

LaTroy Hawkins allowed two runs and stranded the bases loaded in a non-save situation against the Nationals on Wednesday.

Hawkins entered the game with a four-run lead and got two quick outs before the Nationals strung together four straight hits. A fielding error loaded the bases with the winning run at first, but Ian Desmond struck out to end the threat. Hawkins has a 3.09 ERA after Wednesday's outing, and the struggles of Rex Brothers and Adam Ottavino have given the 41-year-old some job protection in his hold on the Rockies' closer role.
Jul 23 - 8:00 PM

LaTroy Hawkins collected his 17th save of the season in Wednesday's defeat of the Padres.

Hawkins allowed a walk but no hits in a mostly clean and efficient ninth inning. The 41-year-old was on the brink of losing his grip on the Rockies' closer gig at the end of May, but he has settled in since with a 2.53 overall ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 32 innings for the season.
Jul 9 - 6:30 PM

LaTroy Hawkins earned his 14th save with a scoreless ninth inning against the Giants on Sunday.

Hawkins worked around a walk to close out the come-from-behind victory, facing the bottom of the order and Gregor Blanco. The 41-year-old has just an 11/6 K/BB ratio in 25 innings but owns a 2.88 ERA. Given the reliance on balls in play his ERA is likely to take a step back, but he needs to be owned while he's getting saves for the Rox.

LaTroy Hawkins earned his 13th save of 2014 in the Rockies' defeat of the Giants on Saturday.

The veteran right-hander made the Rockies' ninth-inning rally stick with a perfect bottom frame. Hawkins has not allowed a run since May 20, keeping talented young setup men Rex Brothers and Adam Ottavino at bay.
Jun 14 - 8:00 PM

LaTroy Hawkins picked up his 11th save of the season as the Rockies beat the Braves on Saturday.

It was an important save conversion for Hawkins, who has struggled pretty mightily this season. He still has a rough 4.15 ERA and 1.44 WHIP, and Rex Brothers and Adam Ottavino remain worthwhile fantasy stashes.
May 24 - 7:27 PM

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said late Wednesday that he's sticking with LaTroy Hawkins at closer.

Hawkins has a 4.41 ERA and 1.53 WHIP on the year, and opponents are hitting .314 against him. But the veteran right-hander is still somehow 10-for-11 in save opportunities. "I look at the body of work for the whole season," Weiss told reporters Wednesday. "He's had a couple of tough ones the last couple of times out, but I think his stuff is still intact." Rex Brothers and Adam Ottavino remain excellent fantasy stashes.

LaTroy Hawkins blew his first save of the season, but the Rockies walked off in the tenth inning on Sunday against the Padres.

Hawkins came in with a 6-4 lead but served up a one-out, two-run home run to Everth Cabrera to knot the game up at six apiece. Despite the one blown save, Hawkins has been shaky since the calendar turned to May and now owns a 4.11 ERA with a 6/3 K/BB ratio in 15 1/3 innings.
May 18 - 8:00 PM

LaTroy Hawkins picked up his 10th save of the season on Friday, allowing a run on three hits in his inning of work against the Padres.

It wasn't the smoothest of sailing, but as he has every time this season, Hawkins managed to get the job done. He has now converted each of his first 10 save chances on the season, though it comes with a 3.14 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 6/3 K/BB ratio in 14 1/3 innings.
May 17 - 12:03 AM

LaTroy Hawkins recorded his eighth save by hurling a perfect ninth inning Monday against the Diamondbacks.

Not a bad start to the 41-year-old's Rockies' career, as he's now 8-for-8 in save conversions to go with a 2.61 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 5/2 K/BB rate over 10 1/3 innings. The Hawk won't blow anyone away, but he's learned all sorts of tricks over the years -- including his vaunted "quick pitch" -- and should be able to hold onto ninth-inning duties assuming his body doesn't betray him.
Apr 29 - 12:46 AM

Despite giving up a two-run bomb to Adrian Gonzalez, LaTroy Hawkins recorded his seventh save Friday against the Dodgers.

It was the first homer and just the second and third runs allowed by Hawkins in 9 1/3 innings this season. He's yet to blow a save.
Apr 26 - 2:26 AM

LaTroy Hawkins recorded his fourth save with a scoreless ninth Thursday against the Padres.

Rex Brothers has been wild in the early going and Hawkins has yet to experience a misstep, so it doesn't look like the Rockies' closer gig will change hands anytime soon. Hawkins thus far has allowed three hits and one run in 5 2/3 innings of work.
Apr 17 - 9:59 PM

LaTroy Hawkins earned his third save of the season Tuesday in the Rockies' 3-2 win over the Padres.

So far, so good for Colorado's 41-year-old offseason import. Since allowing a run in his Rockies' debut, Hawkins has strung together four consecutive scoreless appearances. He's 3-for-3 in save conversions to go with a 1.93 ERA and 0.86 WHIP. He's outpitching Rex Brothers right now.
