Angels purchased the contract of 1B Brad Hawpe from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Hawpe will provide depth for Saturday's doubleheader. The 33-year-old is likely to be sent back down immediately following the game.

Brad Hawpe is expected to be called up from Triple-A Salt Lake for Saturday's doubleheader against the Red Sox.

It's well deserved, as Hawpe is hitting .305/.405/.504 with six home runs, 28 RBI and a .909 OPS in 37 games this season in Triple-A. The 33-year-old hasn't played in the big leagues since 2011 with the Padres.

Angels signed 1B/OF Brad Hawpe to a minor league contract.

Hawpe, 33, didn't play at all in the majors last season and failed to earn a spot with the Pirates during spring training. The former All-Star will serve as organizational depth.

Pirates released 1B Brad Hawpe.

Hawpe struggled mightily in spring training and was never a candidate for the Pirates' Opening Day roster. He won't draw any major league interest, but should be able to latch on with another team after spending last season with the Rangers as organizational depth.

Brad Hawpe homered in the bottom of the eighth to help the Pirates edge the Orioles 4-3 on Monday.

Hawpe was 3-for-23 with 10 strikeouts this spring before taking Daniel Schlereth deep for his first home run. He's not going to make the Pirates, but perhaps he'll be able to impress one of the other 29 teams before Opening Day.

Brad Hawpe went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts on Thursday and is 2-for-20 with nine strikeouts this spring.

The Pirates weren't counting on Hawpe when they took a flier on him a couple of months ago, and he hasn't emerged as a threat to make the team. If he wants to continue his career in Triple-A, he'll be given that opportunity.

Pirates signed 1B/OF Brad Hawpe to a minor league contract.

Hawpe was released by the Rangers last season after failing to earn a promotion beyond the Double-A level. He'll receive a spring training invite with the Pirates, but isn't likely to crack the Opening Day roster.

Rangers released 1B-OF Brad Hawpe.

Hawpe asked to be cut after failing to earn a promotion beyond the Double-A level. He batted .260 with a .764 OPS in 152 plate appearances for the Frisco RoughRiders.

Brad Hawpe has been placed on the disabled list at Double-A Frisco because of elbow fatigue.

Hawpe underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last August and is still rebuilding the strength in his right arm. The 32-year-old should be fine after a few weeks of rest but seems unlikely to have any sort of impact at the major league level this season.
Thu, May 31, 2012 09:54:00 AM

Rangers re-signed 1B Brad Hawpe to a minor league contract; assigned him to Double-A Frisco.

Hawpe was released by the Rangers last week after batting .261/.370/.478 in 13 games this spring. He'll stick around as a depth for the major league roster.
Fri, Apr 6, 2012 05:36:00 PM

Rangers released 1B Brad Hawpe.

Hawpe was not open to accepting a spot in the Rangers' minor league system and will instead look to sign on quickly with a team that has an opening in the major leagues. The 32-year-old outfielder-first baseman batted .261/.370/.478 in 13 games this spring.

Brad Hawpe (hamstring) made it through his Cactus League debut without any setbacks.

Hawpe is recovering from a sore right hamstring and working his way back from Tommy John surgery. He's expected to compete for a spot on the Rangers' Opening Day bench.
Mon, Mar 12, 2012 12:31:00 AM

Brad Hawpe (hamstring) will not play in a B-game on Thursday.

Hawpe was originally scheduled to play first base and lead off every inning Thursday, but he's evidently still a couple of days away from game action. The 32-year-old has been slowed with a sore right hamstring this spring and is also working his way back from Tommy John surgery. He's falling behind in his efforts to win a bench job this spring.
