FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- The Minnesota Twins reached an agreement with right-handed pitcher LaTroy Hawkins, avoiding an arbitration hearing that was set for Tuesday.
Hawkins agreed to a two-year contract, with a club option for 2003. Terms were not disclosed.
Twins manager Tom Kelly has said Hawkins will be his closer this season. He was 14-for-14 over a limited stretch as their closer last season.
