Rangers re-sign Hairston to one-year deal
ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers and utilityman Jerry Hairston Jr. agreed to a minor league contract on Friday.
Texas acquired the 30-year-old Hairston from the Chicago Cubs last season and he played both infield and outfield for the Rangers. He batted .205 with three doubles and six RBIs in 63 games with Texas.
The Rangers obtained Hairston from the Cubs on May 31 for slugger Phil Nevin and cash.
Hairston is a .257 career hitter with 30 homers, 200 RBIs and 107 stolen bases in nine major league seasons. He spent his first seven seasons with Baltimore.
