Orioles second baseman might miss opener

Postby WebHamster » Fri Mar 05, 2004 3:00 am

Fort Lauderdale, FL (Sports Network) - Baltimore Orioles second baseman Jerry Hairston broke his right ring finger during an exhibition contest Thursday, leaving his status for the team's season opener against the Boston Red Sox on April 4 in doubt.

Hairston, who was battling Brian Roberts for a starting spot, was hurt while sliding into third base in the first inning. He singled to lead off the home- half of the frame, stole second and was then injured as he stole third base.

Hairston had missed two intrasquad games after a problem with his physical, but was checked out and considered to be in good health.

The 27-year-old infielder played in only 58 games last season due to injury. He still finished the campaign with a .271 average, 25 runs scored and 14 stolen bases.

Entering his seventh major league season, Hairston owns a career .254 average with 24 home runs and 81 stolen bases in 444 games.
