Orioles signed INF Jayson Nix to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Nix will make $750,000 if he makes the major league roster and stays on it. The 32-year-old infielder batted just .120/.169/.157 in 91 plate appearances last season between the Phillies, Pirates, and Royals.

Jayson Nix has replaced Christian Colon on the Royals' roster for the World Series.

Pirates signed INF Jayson Nix to a one-year contract.

It's a major league deal, as Nix will join the Pirates in Arizona Sunday. He'll give the club another option at third base while Pedro Alvarez sorts through his throwing issues.

Rays released INF Jayson Nix.

The Rays needed to clear roster space at Triple-A Durham for Nick Franklin. Nix was hitting .275/.343/.413 at Durham and should be able to land a gig elsewhere.

Rays signed INF Jayson Nix to a minor league contract.

Nix is now off the Phillies' 40-man roster. The 31-year-old was batting just .154/.214/.231 with 18 strikeouts in 43 plate appearances this season for Philadelphia. He can refuse the outright assignment and become a free agent.

Rays traded SS Jayson Nix to the Phillies for cash considerations.

It had been reported that the Phillies had interest in the infielder, enough so that they didn't want to vie for his services with other clubs. Nix will fill a backup infielder role for the Phillies.

CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury said Jayson Nix is "very much" on the Phillies' radar if he doesn't break camp with the Rays.

Nix has an out clause if he's not put on the 25-man roster to begin the season, so he'd likely use it if he believes he could get a major league job with the Phillies. Nix batted .236/.308/.311 with the Yankees in 2013 but has been a useful bench player in the past.

Rays signed INF Jayson Nix to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Nix was non-tendered by the Yankees in December after batting just .236/.308/.311 across 303 plate appearances in 2013. He does have some speed and defensive versatility, but the 31-year-old will have to battle for a roster spot this spring in Rays camp.

Yankees non-tendered INF Jayson Nix.

With Brendan Ryan and Eduardo Nunez around to back up Derek Jeter, there was no longer room on the roster for Nix. With defensive versatility and a little bit of speed and pop, Nix shouldn't have trouble landing a utility job elsewhere.
