Laynce Nix Joins CAA Sports

As Laynce Nix searches for his next club, he'll be represented by a new agency.  The outfielder/first baseman has joined CAA Sports, according to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet (via Twitter).  Nix was previously a client of Lagardere Unlimited.

Nix, 32, was designated for assignment by the Phillies on August 6th and granted his release six days later.  The veteran, who was on the backend of a two-year, $2.5MM deal, was expected to be a quality reserve bat against right-handed pitching, but things weren't clicking for him in Philly this year.  

The folks at CAA will now try to sell teams on Nix's pre-2013 performance.  The older brother of Yankees infielder Jayson had a career .245/.290/.429 slash line prior to this season.
