The Angels and LaTroy Hawkins have agreed to terms on a one-year contract, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times. Hawkins will earn $3MM in the deal, tweets Scott Miller of CBS Sports.

The Angels had been pursuing bullpen help aggressively for weeks, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today (on Twitter), and figure to use Hawkins as a setup man in front of closer Jordan Walden. The Angels turned their attention to Hawkins after unsuccessfully trying to acquire Ramon Ramirez from the Giants, tweets Danny Knobler of CBS Sports.
Not a bad pickup for the Angels. Hawkins bounced back last year after disastrous, injury riddled 2010 season. $3 million is fair considering what other relievers are making this offseason. At least they didn't go overboard and sign a closer for ridiculous amounts of money. Walden blew some saves last year but it was his rookie year and he has filthy stuff. I do wonder what the Giants were asking for Ramon Ramirez though.
