Four Teams Considering Trot Nixon

According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, four teams watched 33 year-old outfielder Trot Nixon audition in Tucson today: the D'Backs, Blue Jays, Mariners, and Dodgers.  Nixon earned $4MM in '07 while hitting .251/.342/.336 for the Tribe in 354 plate appearances.  He was pretty much injury-free.

Nixon's calling card had typically been his ability to rake right-handed pitching.  He hit .256/.352/.345 against righties in '07, drawing plenty of walks but displaying no power.  Rather than a platoon he seems in line for a bench job this year.
