Mets Sign Scott Hairston

The Mets have officially signed Scott Hairston, according to's Anthony DiComo (on Twitter). Like his brother Jerry, who signed with the Nationals yesterday, Scott is a CAA client.

Hairston spent the 2010 season in San Diego, where he hit .210/.295/.346 in 336 plate appearances. The 30-year-old, who played all three outfield positions last year, has a .278/.331/.498 line against left-handed pitching in his career. Willie Harris and Hairston should provide manager Terry Collins with alternatives to Carlos Beltran, Angel Pagan and Jason Bay in the outfield.
