The Cardinals are looking for outfield help after dealing Skip Schumaker, and Scott Hairston is a potential target.
With Skip Schumaker on this way to the Los Angeles Dodgers via trade, the St. Louis Cardinals could make an even bigger push for someone they were previously interested in, free agent outfielder Scott Hairston.
Hairston should be due at least a modest raise with whomever he signs. He hit .263/.299/.504 for the Mets last season with a career-high 20 home runs and 57 runs batted in, seven shy of a career high. The San Francisco Giants, Philadelphia Phillies and the Mets' subway rivals, the New York Yankees, are also reportedly interested in Hairston.
