Yanks ready to deal Hawkins
The Astros are close to a deal with the Yankees that would send reliever LaTroy Hawkins to Houston for a low minor leaguer, according to a source with knowledge of the discussions. Hawkins would be the second prospective free agent the Astros have traded for this month. They also obtained "rent-a-starter" Randy Wolf from San Diego on July 22.
