Hairston, Weathers To Test Market’s Mark Sheldon has the latest on free agents Jerry Hairston Jr. and David Weathers.

  • Hairston expressed gratitude toward the Reds for giving him a shot this year.  The Reds made progress with his agent on contract talks, but don’t expect an agreement with Hairston or any of their other free agents to be reached by Friday.  Based on his quotes, it sounds like Hairston will at least listen to offers from other teams.  He posted a career-best .326/.384/.487 line in 297 plate appearances this year.
  • Weathers says he’s "flipped the page" on the Reds.  Talks never became serious, and the Reds never made an offer.  He’s looking forward to testing the market, and doesn’t expect to return to Cincinnati.  Walt Jocketty says he still wants to talk.
