Andy Martino of the Daily News says the Mets have agreed to terms with Scott Hairston on a Major League contract, and Jon Heyman of CBS Sports says the deal is for around $1.1 million.
Joel Sherman of the New York Post says Hairston is in New York undergoing a physical.
In 79 games for the Mets in 2011, Hairston, 31, hit .235 with a .303 OBP, 7 HR and 31 RBI in 145 plate appearances. Hairston hit .167 through April, but .254 the rest of the season.
A career .274 hitter against lefies, Hairston hit nearly 30 points lower than that (.247) with one home run off left handers in 2011.
In late October, Andy Martino of the Daily News said, “Willie Harris and Scott Hairston will not be resigned until much later in the offseason, if they are re-signed at all,” according to a source.
