Scott Hairston


Hairston was recalled from Triple-A Tucson on Friday by the Diamondbacks to replace the injured Jeff DaVanon on the roster. DaVanon was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Sunday, with a sprained left ankle.


Hairston was recalled by Arizona from Triple-A Tucson on Monday. The 26-year-old second baseman was hitting .340 with 18 homers in 63 games at Tucson. He spent part of the 2004 and 2005 seasons with the Diamondbacks hitting .240 with 13 home runs and 29 RBIs in 116 games.


Hairston has been optioned to Triple-A Tucson by the Arizona Diamondbacks, opening a spot on the roster for outfielder Luis Terrero, who was activated from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday. In 15 games with Arizona this season, Hairston is 2-for-20 with a double and six strikeouts.


The Arizona Diamondbacks placed outfielder Luis Terrero on the 15-day disabled list a groin injury and recalled Hairston to replace him. The 25-year-old Hairston has hit .319 (32-for-141) in 40 games for Triple-A Tucson this season. He was 2-for-9 (.222) with a double in an earlier stint with Arizona.


Opening a spot on the 25-man roster for reliever Jose Valverde, the Arizona Diamondbacks have optioned Hairston to Triple-A Tucson. In limited action with Arizona this season, Hairston had two hits, including a double, in eight at-bats.

Hairston was called up when Jose Cruz went on the disabled list last month. He saw most of his time at second base last year, but since has moved to the outfield.
