Jayson Nix Designated for Assignment

One of the first stories that we published when we launched last year was the news of the Jayson Nix signing. Almost a year later, we have news about him again as the New York Yankees have designated him for assignment in order to make room for Mariano Rivera on the 40-man roster.

This is not a goodbye for Nix. Chad Jennings of LoHud tweeted that Nix agreed to a one year contract worth $900K and avoided arbitration, but will head to the minor leagues. If he clears waivers, he will be able to rejoin the Major League club for Spring Training in Tampa.

As a utility player in 2012, Nix hit .243 with four homeruns and 18 runs batted in.
