Angels activate reliever LaTroy Hawkins
DENVER (AP) Reliever LaTroy Hawkins has rejoined the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday after missing 30 games because of a broken right pinkie.
The Angels optioned reliever Bobby Cassevah to their Triple-A affiliate in Salt Lake City after activating Hawkins from the 15-day disabled list. Cassevah was 1-0 with a 7.20 ERA in four appearances with the Angels.
Hawkins fractured the finger on May 6 against Toronto while fielding a grounder. He was 0-1 with a 1.08 ERA in 10 appearances before the injury.
``We definitely missed what he could bring to our bullpen. We're excited to have him back,'' Angels manager Mike Scioscia said before Saturday's interleague game against Colorado.
