Mariners Offer Contract To Laynce Nix

The Mariners added Jack Cust and Miguel Olivo at the Winter Meetings, but they continue to tinker.  The Ms offered a contract to outfielder Laynce Nix, tweets John Hickey of AOL Fanhouse.

Nix, 30, hit .291/.350/.455 in 182 plate appearances across 97 games for the Reds this year, playing mostly left field.  He was shielded against lefties by manager Dusty Baker.  Nix missed most of September with an ankle injury and was outrighted in November.
