07:23 AM ET 11.21 | The Rockies may have a deal in place for veteran righty LaTroy Hawkins, but that may not mean the offseason's complete in the Mile High City. "We don't look at it like our bullpen is closed," assistant general manager Bill Geivett said Tuesday. "It's only Nov. 19, and we've just made one move, so we are still looking for ways to improve our club." ... Among the free-agent possibilities are Jose Vera, Joe Smith and Edward Mujica. However, those relievers are likely looking for three-year deals. Snaring Hawkins was actually the second major move the Rockies have made this offseason. Two weeks ago, the Rockies picked up the $4.25 million mutual option on right-handed setup man Matt Belisle, even though Belisle struggled in 2013, going 5-7 with a 4.32 ERA. "We think Matt has real value for our club," Geivett said.
