Yankees Sign Jayson Nix

The Yankees have signed Jayson Nix to a minor league deal that includes an invitation to Major League Spring Training, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Nix, a 29-year-old who bats from the right side, will presumably compete for a utility job next spring.

Nix posted a .169/.245/.309 line in 151 plate appearances for the 2011 Blue Jays before they outrighted him to the minors in July. He posted double-digit home run totals in 2009-10, but has struck out in a quarter of his career plate appearances. The 2001 first rounder has MLB experience at shortstop, second, third and both corner outfield positions.

He’s okay. Made a few errors for the Jays but has a decent stroke at times. Can play lots of positions, gets injured at times lol

Bad News for Chavez! even though he may very well plan on retiring… I don’t keep up with the Chavez updates

I recall he most recently said he plans on playing in ’12.

It’s a minor lge deal and an invite. No way does it stand in the way of a Chavez return. Chavez will almost certainly get a mlb deal.

my daughters aren’t allowed around athletes, rappers or rock stars until their at least 25. Strictly account majors and pre-med/law students. Or swim team guys. Unless he’s the next Michael Phelps then I “ain’t” worried.

You see what you did, Selig? Now the Yankees are going to sign all the Jayson Nix’s of the world and there is nothing any team can do about it.

They actually don’t, they can just form a stem-cell army of super pitchers.

Hey, it is rumoured that the Yankees are going after the best pitcher on the market and are close to signing him.  Yep, it looks like that fireballing phenomenon Freddie Garcia is returning for another year in New York.   The rotation is set now, but Colon feels if Garcia deserves another contract, he rates one too.  That is also true for Zack Duke, Jo Jo Reyes, Jamie Moyer.  It is their dream to finish on a fourth-place Yankees team that miss the playoffs, even with an extra wild card in play.  lol.

At first I thought you were just talking your usual smack about the Yankees and dismissed it. But on second thought, you may be right, I mean, what fan is better qualified to recognize a forth place team more so than you?

Maybe he could fill Nunez’s spot when he gets traded.

MikhelB
3 years 9 months ago

More likely he’ll fill the spot left at AAA when Núñez gets traded and Laird gets promoted.

Reminds me of the scene in Major League where the list of spring training invitees is so terrible, one of them is actually dead.

“Has struck out in a quarter of his career plate appearances”

I had to re-read that, laugh, then read it again. Keep making money while you can, I suppose. Good luck Jayson.

Yep…it surely was.

You asked the same question to the first woman (or man) who saw you with your pants down, didn’t you?
