Mets Trade Rumors: Scott Hairston A Tigers Trade Target?

New York Mets outfielder Scott Hairston is reportedly a trade target of the Detroit Tigers (via Jon Morosi). Just days ago, the Mets said they would listen to offers for Hairston, albeit only for players who could help the team as early as the 2013 season (via Joel Sherman). The Tigers are looking for a right-handed bat and Hairston could seemingly provide what Detroit is looking for.

Hairston, 32, is hitting .259 with 12 home runs and 39 RBI this season for the Mets. For his career, he is hitting .279 against left-handed pitching. In 2012, he is hitting .308 against lefties with nine homers and 24 RBI.

However, according to Adam Rubin, while Detroit and New York did speak on Friday, a deal for Hairston does not seem likely. Stay tuned to see if the Mets can make a deal for Hairston with the Tigers or another team by the MLB trade deadline on July 31.
