Yankees Call Padres About Jerry Hairston, Are Rebuffed

New, 1 comment

Jerry Hairston Jr. helped the Yankees last season as a right-handed-batting utility infielder picked up at the trading deadline, and Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Yankees have looked into acquiring him from the Padres. “But Hairston is now an important everyday cog on a first-place team,” Sherman writes, which means the Padres have deemed him off-limits.

Sherman’s post outlines potential alternatives to Hairston, including Cody Ross, but each has his drawbacks.
