INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers landed a pair of free agent pitchers Wednesday, reaching agreements with starter Randy Wolf and reliever LaTroy Hawkins, two people familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.
Wolf’s deal is worth $29.75 million over three years and includes a $10 million option for 2013, one of the people said Wednesday. Hawkins will get $7.5 million over two seasons, the other person said.
Both agreements are subject to completion of final details, the people said. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcements had been made.
Wolf, a 34-year-old left-hander, was 11-7 with a 3.23 ERA this year in the lone season of his second stint with Los Angeles Dodgers. He had a $5 million base salary and earned $3 million in performance bonuses based on innings.
Wolf also was a free agent last offseason. He agreed to the deal with the Dodgers on Feb. 6, about 1½ months after Houston offered a $27 million, three-year contract in an attempt to re-sign him. The Astros then withdrew the proposal a week later, citing the poor economy.
He is 101-85 with a 4.13 ERA in 11 major league seasons with Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Diego and Houston. The New York Mets also were interested in trying to sign Wolf.
Hawkins, a right-hander who turns 37 on Dec. 21, spent the last two seasons with Houston and went 1-4 with a 2.13 ERA and 11 saves in 15 chances this year. He had 45 strikeouts and 16 walks in 63 1-3 innings.
A veteran of 15 major league seasons, he is 60-81 with 87 saves and a 4.51 ERA. He also has pitched for Minnesota, the Chicago Cubs, San Francisco, Baltimore, Colorado and the New York Yankees.
