LaTroy Hawkins was shelled in one-third of an inning, allowing five runs to the Athletics as the Rockies lost 11-2 on Monday.
The A's scored two runs on a Ben Zobrist double and a Billy Butler single, then added three more on a Brett Lawrie three-run homer. Hawkins has pitched well in four of his six outings this spring, but has been hit hard in the two others. He's entering what will be his final year in baseball, and the mix of his age (42), home ballpark, and vanishing strikeout rate makes him a risky play for fantasy purposes. Mar 30 - 7:55 PM

LaTroy Hawkins revealed in an interview on MLB Network Friday that the 2015 season will be his final one.

It's no surprise, of course, as Hawkins will turn 42 later this month and 2015 is the final year on his contract. The veteran reliever doesn't miss bats anymore but has remained an effective reliever, this past season posting a 3.31 ERA and 1.20 WHIP for the Rockies. He'll enter the 2015 campaign as the team's closer.

Rockies exercised RHP LaTroy Hawkins' $2.25 million option for 2015.

Hawkins fared pretty well as the Rockies' closer in 2014, posting a 3.31 ERA and 1.20 WHIP while converting 23 of 26 save chances. He should enter the 2015 campaign at the back-end of the bullpen again for the Colorado.

LaTroy Hawkins retired the only batter he faced Saturday in his 1,000th career appearance.

The 41-year-old Hawkins became the 16th pitcher ever to appear in 1,000 games, and it's an especially impressive feat given that he was a starter through age 26. His 98 career starts are the second most for anyone with 1,000 appearances, trailing Dennis Eckersley's 361 starts.

LaTroy Hawkins took his fourth blown save and second in a row after giving up two runs in the ninth Monday against the Mets.

Hawkins' terrific season seems to be coming apart here a little bit at the end, but hopefully he'll rebound and finish strong. Even after giving up four runs in three appearances this month, he's sporting a 3.28 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. He's 22-for-26 saving games.

LaTroy Hawkins hurled a scoreless ninth inning to earn his 21st save against the Giants on Monday.

The Hawk made things interesting, losing Mike Morse on a full count to walk the leadoff batter. The next batter, Joe Panik, hit the ball on the screws, but Charlie Blackmon snagged it in right field, and then Hawkins struck out both Gregor Blanco and Brandon Crawford to end the affair. The Rockies are thrilled with their return on investment from the 41-year-old (21 saves, 2.74 ERA, 1.13 WHIP) and value his veteran presence. Colorado plans to pick up his $2.25 million club option for 2015.

LaTroy Hawkins tossed a clean inning to earn his 20th save against the Marlins on Sunday.

Hawkins gave up three hits and a run in a non-save situation Saturday, so it was a nice rebound for the 41-year-old. This marks the third season in his long career that Hawkins has reached 20 saves. The right-hander owns a 2.80 ERA and 1.13 WHIP through 45 innings this season.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
