DENVER -- LaTroy Hawkins is returning to the Colorado Rockies and the veteran reliever may just possibly wind up as their closer. Hawkins agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal on Tuesday, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal has yet to be announced and is still pending a physical. The right-hander played an integral role in the bullpen for Colorado in 2007, when the Rockies made their only run to the World Series before being swept by the Boston Red Sox. Hawkins, who turns 41 in December, will be in contention for the closer role with left-hander Rex Brothers, who stepped in last season after Rafael Betancourt got hurt and finished with 19 saves. The Rockies also like the hard-throwing Brothers as a set-up man in the eighth inning. Hawkins spent last season with the New York Mets, going 3-2 with a 2.93 ERA and 13 saves in 70 2-3 innings. The Mets tried to keep him and made an offer. "Were happy for him. He did a great job for us last year," Mets GM Sandy Alderson said. "Was a terrific part of the team, in the clubhouse, as well as his role on the field. We wish him well. "Hes 41 years old. We werent necessarily counting on him to fill the same role for us next year. We certainly would have liked to have him in the pen, but going into the spring, I think that, again, given kind of the vagaries of relief pitching anyway and his age and what we had coming, it wasnt clear what his role would be." USA Today first reported the agreement. On his Twitter account Tuesday, Hawkins posted a thank you to the Mets organization and fans. He closed his tweet with, "Now off to BowHunting." Earlier this month, the Rockies took a big step toward keeping their bullpen intact as right-handed reliever Matt Belisle and the team exercised their mutual option for 2014. The bullpen had a 4.23 ERA in 2012. Colorado also exercised the club option on left-handed pitcher Jorge De La Rosa, who was solid on the mound last season as he finished 16-6 with a 3.49 ERA. De La Rosa is scheduled to make $11 million next year. The Rockies are coming off a season in which they finished last in the NL West with a 74-88 record. Nacho Monreal Jersey .A. Dickey, even though he was coming off a Cy Young Award in 2012. Many felt the Jays would regret giving up righthanded pitcher prospect Noah Syndergaard and catcher Travis DArnaud over the long haul. Mathieu Flamini Jersey . The San Angelo, Texas product, who was a high school and college quarterback sensation in the Lone Star State, will start his first CFL game with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (9-4) on Friday at Mosaic Stadium against the leagues top team, the Calgary Stampeders (11-2). http://www.arsenalsoccerpro.com/Customized/. Although the deal cannot be made official until the free agent moratorium period is lifted on July 10, Patterson has agreed to a three-year, $18 million extension to remain in Toronto, sources confirm to TSN. Calum Chambers Jersey . Trailing 5-4 in the third set, the 12th-ranked Isner fought off two match points and evened it at 5-5 with consecutive aces. The former University of Georgia star had his only service break of the match to go up 6-5 before firing the last four of his 30 aces to close out Ginepri, an Atlanta resident ranked 281st. Joel Campbell Jersey . Kuznetsov, who was selected by the Capitals in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, has been playing for his hometown team Chelyabinsk Traktor of the KHL.TORONTO - Its been a frustrating ordeal that has taken up the better part of two seasons, and involved more than dozen pairs of skates.But finally, Kevin Reynolds believes its over. Hes found a pair of skates that fit.And now the 24-year-old from Coquitlam, B.C., heads into next weeks Canadian figure skating championships in Kingston, Ont., more confident than hes been in ages, and with his eyes on capturing his first national senior title.I want to be able to show that I can be back in competitive shape, and Ive done everything that I can, and whatever happens at the national championships, whether its good or bad, Ill know I put my utmost effort into it, Reynolds said on a conference call Friday.Reynolds skate issues began early last season, when he couldnt find a pair of boots that properly fit his uniquely shaped foot: very narrow at the heel and wide in the front. He went through nine pairs of boots last season, four in the off-season. He finally gave up counting.So after having to withdraw from both Skate Canada International and the NHK Trophy, he switched his focus to other brands of boots, trying the best model available in every brand until he found one he liked.Which brand he chose, he preferred not to say Friday. Hell talk about that after the Canadian championships.But the new boots have allowed him to train hard for a solid four to five weeks, which is more than hes managed in almost two seasons.To be able to train my programs, to be able to train the quadruple jumps every day, and gain some of the consistency back, its really helped my confidence, and Im looking forward to putting things out there again, Reynolds said.In nine Canadian senior championships, Reynolds has won a bronze medal, and finished with silver medals the last three seasons behind Patrick Chan. But Chan, an Olympic silver medallist and three-time world champion, is taking this season off to ponder his competitive future, and Reynolds said a national title would bee the perfect way to mark his 10th appearance in the event.ddddddddddddAmong the other skaters eyeing the national title: 16-year-old Nam Nguyen, who won last years world junior championships. Reynolds said his small amount of decent training isnt the ideal preparation for the Canadian championships.Ive had to compress a whole years training into four or five weeks, he said.But being able to finally compete in a boot that fits, and wont break down after a couple of weeks of training — a secondary issue hed been encountering — has been a massive weight lifted.(The lack of confidence) was more of an issue heading into the national championships and Olympic Games last year, because I had never dealt with something of this magnitude before, Reynolds said. But it has been ongoing for so long that Ive really become almost accustomed to it, that things have not been as consistent as Id like, and Ive just had to fight through it, and do the best I can.Coming off a fifth place finish at the 2013 world championships, Reynolds had high hopes for last season. But after helping the Canadians win silver in the first ever team event at the Olympics in Sochi, the skater known for jumping ability stumbled to a 15th place finish in the individual event. Heartbreak and frustration would follow him into this season, as he pulled out of both Skate Canada International and NHK Trophy because of lack of preparation and a sprained ankle he suffered that he partly attributes to his ill-fitting skates.It was a very difficult decision for me (to withdraw from the two Grand Prix events), because I had felt like I had let people down that had supported me, and not only that but I couldnt believe at that point that the issues I had been dealing with had continued on for so long, Reynolds said.Ive had so many people helping me out, I just want to give back a little bit to all the people who have sacrificed their time and effort to try and help me along the way.
