Laynce Nix Elects Free Agency

Outfielder Laynce Nix has been outrighted by the Reds and elected free agency, according to MLB.com's Mark Sheldon.  Nix was considered a non-tender candidate, as the Reds have plenty of outfielders already.  In a few weeks they must decide whether to tender Jonny Gomes a contract (seems like a good idea to me).

Nix, 29, received the most playing time of his career since 2004 this year.  He hit .239/.291/.476 in 337 plate appearances, knocking 15 home runs and playing left field.  Reds manager Dusty Baker shielded him from left-handed pitching most of the year.
