The SportsXchange

The Chicago Cubs announced Sunday that they designated outfielder Tony Campana for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Scott Hairston.

The move allowed the Cubs to finalize their two-year, $5 million free agent contract with Scott Hairston.

Campana, 26, hit .264 in 192 plate appearances and stole 30 bases for the Cubs in 2012. His on-base percentage is just .306 and his slugging percentage .300 in two major league seasons.

Hairston, 32, hit .263 with a career-high 20 home runs last season for the Mets. He has a chance to be the Cubs' starting right fielder.
