Hairston out two weeks...

Scott Hairston who missed a month at the end of the season with an oblique injury will now miss the first two weeks of camp with that same injury.

Almost immediately upon starting to hit in camp Hairston once again tweaked the side muscle while swinging the bat.  The treatment for the injury is rest and therefore the veteran will sit for two weeks.

If there is a silver lining it would be that the Mets get to see more of the other players vying for bench positions.

Outfielder Scott Hairston said he will take a break from baseball activities for at least two weeks after getting a cortisone shot Monday. “My goal right now is playing in games going into the last week of spring training,” Hairston said. “And I don’t think that’s [unrealistic].” source the Record
