Hairston played for the Baltimore Orioles (1998-04), the Chicago Cubs (2005-06), the Texas Rangers (2006-07), the Cincinnati Reds (2008-09), the World Series champion New York Yankees in 2009, the San Diego Padres (2010), the Washington Nationals (2011), the Milwaukee Brewers (2011) and the Dodgers (2012-13).

--The Los Angeles Dodgers plan to keep All-Star outfielder Matt Kemp, his agent Dave Stewart said Wednesday.
Stewart said he met with Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti on Wednesday and was told the team plans to keep Kemp rather than trade him.
"He said that they're not going to move him," Stewart said, via the Los Angeles Times.
Stewart said Kemp is pleased with the news.
"He never wanted to leave," Stewart said.
The Dodgers have talked to several teams about Kemp during the winter meetings and earlier in this offseason, according to ESPN.com, and had even said they would take on some of the $128 million remaining on the center fielder's contract over the next six seasons.
The 29-year-old Kemp is recovering from surgeries on his shoulder and ankle this winter, after a season in which he spent three lengthy stays on the disabled list.
Kemp played in a career-low 73 games, hit just six home runs and slugged a career-low .395 -- more than 100 points lower than his career slugging percentage going into the season.
--The New York Mets and 40-year-old right-hander Bartolo Colon have agreed to a two-year contract worth $20 million, multiple media outlets reported.
Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com first reported the deal, which is still pending a physical.
Colon, who turns 41 on May 24, went 18-6 with a 2.65 ERA in 190 1/3 innings for the Oakland Athletics this past season. He was an All-Star and finished sixth in the AL Cy Young voting.
The Mets will be Colon's eighth team as he enters his 17th major league season. He has a career record of 189-128 with a 3.94 ERA.
Colon was suspended 50 games for failing a performance-enhancing drug test late in the 2012 season.
