The Yankees have reached a deal with right-hander LaTroy Hawkins.
He should fill the role that Luis Vizcaino sputtered in last season. The deal is for 1 year, $3.75 million.
Signings like Hawkins and Jose Molina may not garner the big, juicy headlines, but watch for these two veterans to be key players on the 2008 Yankee ball club.
Keeping the young guys while adding veteran pieces… in a way, it kind of feels like 1996 all over again…
