MLB: Washington Nationals Acquire Scott Hairston From Chicago Cubs

Jul 7 2013, 11:53pm CDT | by

The Washington Nationals reportedly acquired right fielder Scott Hairston in a trade with the Chicago Cubs on Sunday night.

The Washington Nationals reportedly acquired right fielder Scott Hairston from the Chicago Cubs in a trade Sunday night.

The Washington Times' Amanda Comak writes the Nationals will send a still unnamed minor league pitcher to the Cubs to complete the deal.  Comak says Hairston, who earns $2.5 million annually, has a successful history against left-handed pitching which likely triggered the deal. 

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal notes the Nationals will use Hairston in the role which is currently being filled by Tyler Moore, who has struggled with a .151 batting average. 

Comak maintains the Nationals would be more comfortable using the veteran Hairston off the bench, citing manager Davey Johnson's dislike of younger players in reserve roles. Comak also adds Hairston is the type of player general manager Mike Rizzo is after.

The 33-year-old Hairston signed a two-year, $5 million deal with the Cubs in the offseason. He produced a .172 batting average with eight home runs and 19 RBIs this season with the Cubs.
