Hawkins returns from disabled list
DENVER -- The Angels reinstated LaTroy Hawkins on Saturday after the right-handed reliever missed 30 games with a fractured finger on his right hand, which he suffered on May 6 while fielding a ground ball on the last play of the game against Toronto.

To make room for Hawkins, Bobby Cassevah was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake.

"LaTroy is the type of guy you don't realize how good he is until he's gone," said Angels manager Mike Scioscia. "We definitely missed what he could bring to our bullpen depth, whether he was coming in [during] the middle of the game or pitching late.

Hawkins has given up one earned run in 8 1/3 innings this year. In 24 appearances against the Rockies, he owns a 1.80 ERA. He pitched for the Rockies on their 2007 National League championship club.

"We'll see what inning he comes in, but he's ready," Scioscia said "We're excited to have him back and have a different dimension to our bullpen."

Hawkins entered Saturday's game with one out in the sixth inning and pitched two-thirds of an inning of scoreless ball.
