LaTroy Hawkins defects from Mets

By Adam Rubin

LaTroy Hawkins has departed the Mets. The reliever has signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal to close for the Colorado Rockies, USA Today reports.

Hawkins, who turns 41 next month, went 3-2 with a 2.93 ERA in 72 appearances for the Mets this past season. He also converted 13 saves after Bobby Parnell was lost for the season with a herniated disk in his neck.

Hawkins earned $1 million in 2013 with the Mets.

Thanks to the #Mets organization and there great fans for the opportunity to pitch in a such a great city #lgm #Mlb Now off to #BowHunting
