JAYSON NIX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yankees Eliminated: More Painful This Year Than Last Year

When the 2014 Yankees season began, not making the playoffs for the second straight year was the furthest thing from my mind. After all, this was a team that had won 85 games in 2013 with journeymen like Jayson Nix and farmhands like Zoilo Almonte.  Now, with such additions as Brian McCann and Jacoby Ellsbury, it seemed a shoe-in that they would surpass that mark and return to...

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...

D-backs beat Pirates on walk-off slide

PHOENIX -- Arizona runner Nick Ahmed put his arms up as he slid into second base and deflected a potential double play relay in the 10th inning Sunday, giving the Diamondbacks a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates lingered on the field to argue with the umpires, to no avail. There was no video review of the final play. With runners at the corners and one out, Andy Marte...

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

On Friday, the Phillies rounded out their bench by acquiring Jayson Nix, brother of Laynce, from the Tampa Bay Rays for cash. Nix, 31, will be Jimmy Rollins’ backup at shortstop. Last season with the Yankees, Nix hit 236 with three homers and 24 RBIs in 86 games. He can also play second base, third base, and has played in the outfield. Not a bad move to make as the final bench...

Yankees’ Jayson Nix succeeding in a thankless situation

Jayson Nix, the do-it-all infielder for the New York Yankees, is in an unenviable position. He has been charged with filling in for the injured Derek Jeter, a task as impossible as…taking the place of Dumbledore at Hogwarts. With Jeter out, Jayson Nix has stepped up Fans in the Bronx don’t want to see anyone other than Derek Jeter at shortstop. First, because he is good. Because...

Yankees' Jayson Nix to Miss 10-14 Days

Yesterday, a strange thing happened.  Eduardo Nunez was removed from the Yankees game and Derek Jeter moved from DH out to shortstop.  This left Andy Pettitte slotted in the lineup to hit.  Of course, things worked themselves out and Pettitte did not have to bat, but Nunez's exit magnified the absence of Jayson Nix.  Nix had reported back to New York yesterday...
