In 79 games for the Mets in 2011, Hairston, 31, hit .235 with a .303 on-base percentage, seven home runs and 31 RBI in 145 plate appearances. Hairston hit .167 through April, but...

Mets Notes: Cedeno, Hairston, 40-man issues and CRG

The Mets have reached agreement with infielder Ronny Cedeno on a one-year deal, worth just north of $1 million. The Mets had no backup shortstop on the roster so Cedeno certainly fills a need. He’s very good insurance in case Ruben Tejada regresses or if Daniel Murphy gets injured again. Cedeno is not much with the bat in his hands, as he has a lifetime OPS+ of 68 in 2,309...

I took a look at his 132 at-bats last season and never mind for a second that he batted .235, but did you know if you prorated his numbers over 500 at-bats, Hairston would have hit 28 home runs with 96 RBI? Of course he won...
