Hairston will be 37 years old in May, needed surgery to repair his injured hip, and has just one season remaining on his contract, but he’s been a solid part-time player while hitting around .270 with a .345 on-base percentage in each of the past two seasons.
Hairston previously won a World Series with the Yankees in 2009, going 1-for-8 in limited postseason action, and will top $20 million in career earnings this season.
