MLB Trade Rumors: Nationals Deal Jerry Hairston To Brewers

The Washington Nationals have made another trade, sending utility man Jerry Hairston Jr. to the Milwaukee Brewers for 23-year old prospect Erik Komatsu. The trade was first reported by ESPN baseball analyst Chris Singleton and has been confirmed by many other reports. It has not been made official, but it likely will soon.

The timing of the trade is interesting because the Nationals just sent down Roger Bernadina to the minor leagues. They had seemingly been planning to go with a center field platoon of Hairston and Rick Ankiel, but not anymore. Will the Nationals really hand the everyday job to Ankiel, or is there a bigger trade on the horizon before Monday's trade deadline?

Hairston had been hitting .268 with four home runs and 24 RBIs in 75 games this season. Komatsu is currently hitting .294 with six home runs and 40 RBIs in Double-A.
