Hairston returns from DL to start Friday's game
LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers activated utilityman Jerry Hairston from the 15-day disabled list Friday, and he was scheduled to play third base against the Astros. The club placed Justin Sellers on the 15-day DL as a corresponding move.

Hairston was placed on the disabled list on May 7 after straining his left hamstring legging out an infield hit in Chicago. He played rehab games with Triple-A Albuquerque Wednesday and Thursday.

Sellers, who is suffering from a bulging disk in his back, was hitting .205 in 19 games with Los Angeles.
