NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Veteran reliever LaTroy Hawkins won’t be returning to the New York Mets next season.

WFAN and CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman confirms Hawkins has reached an agreement with the Colorado Rockies on a one-year deal — with an option for 2015 — worth $2.5 million.

Hawkins, one month shy of 41, will serve as the Rockies’ closer, Heyman reported.

Colorado “blew away” New York’s offer, the New York Daily News reported.
