Hairston could opt for surgery on ailing left hip
LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Jerry Hairston is still in a lot of pain and surgery on his left hip could be an option for the veteran utility man.

He said the team originally thought Hairston would be out for only 15 days, but now it appears it could be much longer.

"Jerry has not really responded well," said Mattingly, who added Hairston is debating his options.

Hairston hit the disabled list on Aug. 12 with left hip inflammation after being bothered for weeks.
