Description: Cubs outfielder Scott Hairston went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer Thursday afternoon against the Padres.
Insight: Hairston has just four hits in 34 at-bats this season, but three were home runs. He was searching for an everyday job as a free agent this past offseason, but he has not found that with the Cubs. The team has used Nate Schierholtz as the everyday right fielder.

Description: The Cubs have reportedly signed outfielder Scott Hairston to a two-year contract. SOURCE: Ken Rosenthal, FOX Sports
Insight: Hairston wants to play everyday after playing a career-high 134 games last season with the Mets and hitting 20 homers, also a career high. However, he will probably have to split games with Nate Schierholtz in right field unless left fielder Alfonso Soriano is traded. Chicago also has retained David DeJesus, who can split time in center field with prospect Brett Jackson but also has experienced as a corner outfielder.
 
9/21/2012 10:26:00 PM

Description: Mets outfielder Scott Hairston is the rare hitter who has success against Phillies lefty Cole Hamels. In 28 career at-bats, Hairston owns a .393 batting average with five homers and a 1.505 OPS.
Insight: Hairston is hitless in his last three games (0-for-9), but his season-long numbers (.260, 17 HR, 48 RBI) are solid for just 323 at-bats. If he's in the lineup against Hamels, he's a must start.
