The Phillies have designated outfielder Jason Pridie for assignment, the club announced. In a related move, Laynce Nix has been activated from the disabled list.
Pridie, 28, has appeared in just nine games for the Phillies this season after seeing action in 101 games for the Mets in 2011. The outfielder signed with the A's over the winter but didn't play in a game for them following a 50-game suspension for a drug violation. Pridie posted a .231/.309/.370 batting line in 236 plate appearances for the Mets last year.
