Twins Interested In LaTroy Hawkins

According to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Twins are "seriously interested" in acquiring LaTroy Hawkins. In the absence of Jose Valverde, Hawkins has collected eight saves and struck out nearly a batter per inning as the Astros closer. He makes $3.5MM this year and will become a free agent after the season.

The Twins have a bullpen ERA of 4.16 in 175.1 innings and Minnesota relievers are striking out nearly two batters for every one they walk (137/70 K/BB). R.A. Dickey, Jose Mijares and Matt Guerrier have been especially effective backing Joe Nathan.
