Hawksworth has surgery; Hairston next
LOS ANGELES -- Following the Dodgers' 8-4 loss against the Giants on Wednesday, it was revealed that Jerry Hairston will have season-ending arthroscopic hip surgery in the next couple of weeks and that Blake Hawksworth had season-ending arthroscopic shoulder surgery earlier in the day.

Hairston, who hit the disabled list Aug. 12 with left hip inflammation, is expected to need four to six months to recover. The veteran utility man was hitting .273 through 78 games this season, his first with the Dodgers.

Hawksworth has been on the DL all season after right elbow surgery, and he had his rehab shut down at the beginning of July after feeling pain in the area of his clavicle. The reliever is expected to miss another year.

Hairston is under contract next year at $3.75 million, while Hawksworth is a non-tendered player.
