Veteran reliever LaTroy Hawkins drawing some interest from multiple teams

Veteran right handed relief pitcher LaTroy Hawkins has played for 10 Major League Baseball teams in his career.

LaTroy was drafted by the Minnesota Twins straight out of high school in 1991 where he spent the first four seasons of his career in the minors until making his debut in 1995. Hawkins stuck with the Twins for almost 10 years before the Chicago Cubs showed some interest in him in 2004, where he eventually landed for two seasons.

After his first two teams of his career, he bounced from the San Francisco Giants, Baltimore Orioles, Colorado Rockies, New York Yankees, Houston Astros, Milwaukee Brewers, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and now the New York Mets.

According to Jon Heyman on Twitter, LaTroy Hawkins has around seven teams who are interested in his services for the 2014 season and possibly beyond. The 40 year old set up man/closer will more than likely sign the last contract of his career this offseason so wherever he decides to sign will more than likely carry a two year contract.

It must be good to have all these teams interested in you, it shows that you must be doing something right.

Right now I believe the Colorado Rockies, Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs are possibly on that list.
