Jerry Hairston, Jr. To Come Off Disabled List When Nationals Head To Houston

Jerry Hairston, Jr. has recovered from a slight fracture in his wrist suffered three weeks ago, and is ready to join his Washington teammates in Houston for their upcoming series with the Astros. Via Nats Insider:

Injured utilityman Jerry Hairston will join the Nationals in Houston tonight and be activated off the 15-day disabled list in time for tomorrow's series opener against the Astros, according to a club source.

Hairston hasn't played since June 29 in Anaheim, when he took a fastball from the Angels' Dan Haren off his right wrist, suffering a slight fracture in the process. The 35-year-old hoped to play through the injury, but it was severe enough to require a stint on the DL.

Before the injury, Hairston was serving a valuable utility role, already playing four positions for Washington. For the year, he is hitting .260 with two home runs and 17 runs batted in.

Hairston spent the last two evenings at Washington's Double-A affiliate Harrisburg, getting one hit in six at bats. In order to place Hairston on the active roster, the Nationals will need to make a corresponding personnel move, most likely after their game today with the Atlanta Braves.
