Washington Nationals OF Scott Hairston was taking groundballs at first base Friday, Aug. 9, as a way to make himself more versatile. Hairston has never played first base in his career. "Maybe it'll lengthen my career," he said. Hairston could become a right-handed option at first base next season. 2B Steve Lombardozzi was also taking grounders at first Friday with the team lacking a real righty hitting option at the position to spell 1B Adam LaRoche. LaRoche is hitting only .184 with a .552 OPS against southpaws this year. 1B Tyler Moore is 13-for-40 with four home runs in his last 10 games at Triple-A Syracuse, but manager Davey Johnson said Moore won't return to the team until September, when rosters expand.
