Jerry Hairston Jr. played through a hip injury for two months before finally shutting things down last week and now it sounds like he won’t be playing again this season.
Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times reports that an anti-inflammatory injection did nothing to ease Hairston’s discomfort and he 36-year-old utility man “could be headed for arthroscopic surgery.”
In playing through the injury Hairston hit just .204 with a .556 OPS in 44 games dating back to mid-June, which probably has the team wondering if he’d have been better off getting it taken care of immediately.
Dodgers trainer Sue Falsone indicated that Hairston would be fully healthy by spring training if he does have the surgery and he’s under contract for next season at $3.75 million.
