Hairston unsure of quick resolution

By Adam Rubin

Scott Hairston told ESPNNewYork.com on Saturday it's unclear whether he will have a resolution to his free agency soon. "Hard to say," Hairston said.

Hairston's comments came amidst reports that Cody Ross -- the other big free-agent, righty-hitting outfielder remaining on the market -- is signing a three-year, $26 million deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

ESPN's Jim Bowden speculates that Ross to Arizona means the Diamondbacks may trade Justin Upton or Jason Kubel.
