JAYSON NIX RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: Diamondbacks beat Pirates on controversial call

Controversy was afoot once again in Phoenix on Sunday, and this isn’t a good look for second base umpire Lance Barrett. Andy Marte grounded into what looked like an inning-ending double play, but Jayson Nix’s throw hit Nick Ahmed in the hands as Ahmed slid into second. Barrett ruled the contact incidental instead of intentional, allowing the game-winning run to score. When you...

Phillies Outright Nix, Galvis Breaks Clavicle

Jayson Nix is gone. He’s been outrighted off the 40-man roster, so he can either accept a trip to Lehigh Valley, or become a free agent. A corresponding move will come before tomorrow’s game against the Los Angeles Angels. Which move that will be is unclear. It could be Cesar Hernandez or Ronny Cedeno. It’s unlikely to be Darin Ruf, who just started his rehab assignment at...

Phillies Acquire Jayson Nix from Rays, Send Aumont to Iron Pigs

Yankees’ Jayson Nix succeeding in a thankless situation
