UPDATE: The Brewers sign LaTroy Hawkins


UPDATEThe Brewers have signed LaTroy Hawkins. It’s a two year deal. Not sure on the money yet, but it’s all done but for the physical.

11:29 A.M.

USA Today’s Bob Nightengale (and others) are reporting that the Brewers are getting close to signing setup man LaTroy Hawkins.  Nightengale says that the Brewers have a “strong interest,” and that they’re “moving fast” on him and could sign him today.

Hawkins has been great for the Astros, putting up a 1.71 ERA in his last 84 1/3 innings.  He’d be a great pickup for the Brewers.
