Jerry Hairston Jr. to DL with leg injury
Hairston, a key contributor for the Padres in their bid to win the NL West title, has a stress fracture of his right tibia and he will be out four-to-six weeks.
Hairston came off the 15-day DL on Sept. 12 after having a strained right elbow.
He said if the Padres advance to the NL championship series he might try to play.
