PITTSBURGH -- LaTroy Hawkins, who was unable to pitch Friday because of a lingering triceps issue, is not a candidate to be placed on the disabled list before the All-Star break, Terry Collins said.

The roster maneuver does not make sense with only two games remaining before a four-day break.

Hawkins suggested to reporters Saturday afternoon that he will be available for an inning tonight if needed.
