Twins Interested In LaTroy Hawkins

TUESDAY: The Twins now have some competition from the Tigers for Hawkins.

MONDAY: According to Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Twins have interest in bringing righty reliever LaTroy Hawkins back.  Hawkins came up through the Twins' system as a starter, but eventually found his niche as a setup man before signing a free agent deal with the Cubs.  Christensen talked to a person close to Hawkins who believes he'd like to come back to Minnesota.

Multiple teams have shown interest in Hawkins since the Yankees designated him for assignment.  They might be able to unload some of the $1.25MM still owed to him.  Hawkins lost a mile an hour off his fastball this year, and wasn't able to maintain the strong groundball and low walk rates he had in Colorado in '07.
