Padres Sign Jerry Hairston Jr.

Let the brotherly tradition continue - the Padres signed Jerry Hairston Jr. to a one-year, $2.125MM deal a few days after re-acquiring Jerry's sibling Scott.

Jerry Hairston began the 2009 campaign with the Reds, and was acquired by the Yankees at the trade deadline in exchange for minor leaguer Chase Weems. For the year, Hairston Jr. posted a line of .251/.315/.394, and earned a World Series ring while playing plus defense in small samples at left field, shortstop, and second base. Hairston Jr. also appeared at third base, center field, and right field.

The near-agreement was first reported by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports on Sunday, with MLB.com's Corey Brock adding the salary today.
