Reds Sign Jerry Hairston Jr.

Jerry Hairston Jr. is returning to the Reds on a one-year deal reports Mark Sheldon on’s hot stove blog. Sheldon writes

"A baseball source told that Hairston and the club agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth a guaranteed $2 million on Tuesday. It’s an incentive laden deal that could be worth up to $4 million. An announcement is expected on Wednesday."

Alex Gonzalez is not expected to be ready for 2009, so Hairston will be the starting shortstop in Cincinnati.
