Tigers offer Scott Hairston 2-year deal?

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Hairston could be a solid platoon option for Detroit.

UPDATE: Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski refutes the earlier report about Hairston, per Jason Beck of MLB.com:

_____________

The Detroit Tigers have offered a two-year contract to free-agent outfielder Scott Hairston, reports Jon Morosi of Fox Sports:

The Tigers could view Hairston as an option to replace free-agent Delmon Young as their everyday left fielder, even though Hairston has had most of his success as a platoon player . If the Tigers did want to platoon the righty slugger, they could pair him in left with the left-handed-hitting Brennan Boesch, who was thought to be trade bait earlier this week.

However, as things continue to move at lightning speed in Nashville, it seems that Hairston's camp does not see Detroit as a probable destination. Adam Rubin of ESPN matter-of-factly reports that Hairston will not go to Detroit:

The 32-year-old Hairston hit .263/.299/.504 with a career-high 20 home runs in 134 games for the Mets in 2012, hitting .286/.317/.550 with 11 home runs off of lefty pitching.
