The Angels are going to be without 39-year old righty reliever LaTroy Hawkins for a while as he fractured his right pinkie last night while earning the save. Hawkins has pitched in 10 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 0-1 with 1 save, a 1.08 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP. The Angels were lucky that they dealt for Ernesto Frieri last week, as he is going to be a very important pitcher for the Angels now. The Angels are going to miss Hawkins.
UPDATE: (5/7/2012) – LaTroy Hawkins is likely going to be out 4-6 weeks.
