Mets make Scott Hairston signing official


According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY, Righty-hitting outfielder Scott Hairston is officially back on board with the Mets, on a deal that was expected to be worth $1.1 million.

Here's the official team release:

The New York Mets today announced the club has re-signed outfielder Scott Hairston to a one-year major league contract.

Hairston, 31, batted .235 (31-132) with 20 runs scored, eight doubles, one triple, seven home runs and 24 RBI in 79 games with the Mets last season.

The 6-0, 204-pounder hit three pinch-hit home runs in 2011, one shy of the single-season franchise record shared by Mark Carreon (1989) and Danny Heep (1983).

He started at all three outfield positions, appearing in 10 games (four starts) in leftfield, 10 games (eight starts) in centerfield and 15 games (11 starts) in rightfield. The Fort Worth, TX native also had a career-high five RBI on July 16 at Philadelphia.

Hairston has hit 75 career home runs and driven in 222 runs in 643 major league games with Arizona, San Diego, Oakland and the Mets.
