Jerry Hairston Jr. is in the lineup today, meaning he has been activated off the disabled list. Unfortunately, the corresponding move is Justin Sellers heading to the disabled list with a bulging disk in his back.
Hairston is batting .315/.403/.463/.866 on the season, which isn’t even the best part, as he was one of the best defenders in the MLB for the month of April. Sellers underwent an MRI the other day due to numbness and weakness in his leg, so it’s safe to say the bulging disk was the cause of that.
That injury saves the roster spots of either Elian Herrera or Ivan De Jesus.
