Yankees Have Some Interest In Jerry Hairston Jr.

The Yankees appear to have inquired on Jerry Hairston Jr., according to Marc Carig of the Star Ledger (on Twitter). The 34-year-old played second, third, short and all three outfield positions with the 2009 World Series Champion Yankees. 

Last year, Hairston batted .244/.299/.353 in 476 plate appearances as a utility infielder and occasional outfielder for the Padres. He reached double digits in home runs for the second time in his career, matching his homer total from 2009 (10).

Hairston has at least one other suitor; there's mutual interest with San Diego. The 13-year-veteran has played for four clubs other than the Yankees and Padres.
