A baseball official said free-agent Scott Hairston does not appear to be imminently signing anywhere, according to a report by Adam Rubin. And while speculation is that teams, including the Yankees and Mets, would like to hold the line on a contract for Hairston at one year, there is a belief the Mets could go to two years in order to re-sign the outfielder. Hairston seeks a multi-year deal. Either way, he clearly will get a raise from the $1.1 million base salary he earned in 2012 while slugging 20 homers in 377 at-bats — and hitting .286 with 11 homers in 189 at-bats against southpaws. Although I prefer a one-year deal myself, I still believe the Mets will sign him and that it likely will be a two-year deal. I wonder if he’d take a one with an option?
