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.

Jimmy Rollins re-signs with the Phillies


The Philadelphia Phillies have reached agreement with shortstop Jimmy Rollins on a three-year, $33-million contract, according to ESPN.

The contract also contains a vesting option for a fourth year worth $11 million, the source said.

With completion of the deal, Rollins will stay with the organization that has been his baseball home since 1996, when the Phillies selected him in the second round of the amateur draft.

Rollins seemed to confirm the deal on Twitter, writing, "I see you all know by now. Gotta deal with me for 3 (4) more years!" Rollins, 33, is a three-time All-Star, three-time Gold Glove winner and won the National League MVP award in 2007. He is fourth on the Phillies' career list behind Richie Ashburn, Mike Schmidt and Ed Delahanty with 1,866 hits, and ranks among the franchise's top five in games played, plate appearances, runs, total bases, doubles, triples and stolen bases.

Rollins joins Jose Reyes (Miami), Alex Gonzalez (Milwaukee), Rafael Furcal (St. Louis) and Clint Barmes (Pittsburgh) as the fifth starting shortstop to sign a multi-year deal as a free agent this winter.

Although Rollins had expressed interest in signing a five-year deal upon entering the free-agent market, the contract could still keep him with the Phillies through the 2015 season, when he will be nearly 37.

Rollins will be reunited in Philadelphia this season with fellow Oakland, Calif., native and close friend Dontrelle Willis, who signed a one-year deal with the club Thursday.
