The New York Yankees are also interested, which could drive up the price beyond what the Braves would be comfortable with, which may be a good thing, considering that Hairston has exactly no lead-off qualifications.
Hairston hit 20 homers with a .263 batting average and .299 on-base percentage last season with the New York Mets. The nine-year veteran has a lifetime .247 average and .302 OBP.
Such a move would force Martin Prado or Andrelton Simmons to hit first in the lineup, and there's the fact that Hairston simply isn't consistent enough to be genuinely reliable.Tags: Atlanta, Atlanta Braves, MLB, Scott Hairston
