    Hairston set to return from disabled list

    Hairston set to return from disabled list
    Veteran will likely join Reds in Toronto on Thursday
    By Brandon Harris / MLB.com

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Jerry Hairston Jr. will rejoin the Reds for Thursday's series finale at Toronto after he completed a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville.

    Hairston spent three games at Louisville rehabbing a broken left thumb he sustained while stealing a base against the Marlins on June 9. After he went 1-for-3 on Wednesday, he was taken out in the fourth inning of Louisville's game vs. Rochester in anticipation of his activation from the 15-day disabled list.

    The move isn't likely to be made official until Thursday. It's possible that slumping rookie shortstop Paul Janish could be sent down. Another possiblity is third baseman Edwin Encarnacion could be put on the DL if his lower back spasms don't improve.

    Hairston went 4-for-12 with a double, two runs scored and a strikeout during his rehab stint. He played shortstop on Monday and Tuesday before he moved to center field on Wednesday.

    "[Reds manager] Dusty [Baker] is the one who set up his schedule," Louisville manager Rick Sweet said. "Dusty wanted him at shortstop for two games and in center field for one."

    Hairston is one of five players to start at shortstop for the Reds this season and filled in strongly after Alex Gonzalez and Jeff Keppinger, Cincinnati's No. 1 and No. 2 options at the position, went down with injuries. Keppinger returned from the DL on Sunday.

    Hairston is batting .336 with one home run and 14 RBIs in 40 games -- including 22 starts at shortstop -- with the Reds this season.

    Pack your bags NoHo.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Keppinger, Hopper, and Hairston healty gives this team a much better bench and better contact in the line-up....

    You think they'll send Janish down instead of Hopper?

    They should. Janish has no business on a MLB roster at this point in his career.

    D doesn't seem to be a priority around here so I think it's a sure thing he'll go down.

    It's also entirely possible they DL EE if he's not progressing quickly enough.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Here's hoping today's line-up has Hairston in CF and leading off and Keppinger still in at shortstop.

    Re: Hairston set to return from disabled list

    I've been shocked at how well Hairston(aka Harriston) and Keppinger have played at short...Janish is clearly the best defender we have at this point but given the offensive struggles I'd lose him. As for Patterson he's also shocked me 'cause even though he does really suck I always had an idea that he was kinda indifferent to the game but lately it's become obvious that he really is putting out the effort(running out those fungo's he hits, etc..)and hopefully one day he'll figure it out. If he can learn to get on coupled with his D he'd be just what the doctor ordered. Don't get much past me, huh?

    Sending down Janish instead of Hopper is idiotic. I hope that isn't the choice.

    Janish will go. After all, Ross, Valentin, and Bako can all back up at SS. They play catcher, and are used to balls in the dirt.
