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.
Mar 28 - 8:49 PM

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.

Chad Jennings of believes that Jayson Nix is a strong candidate to be non-tendered.

With the Yankees re-signing Brendan Ryan to function in a utility role, and Eduardo Nunez already on the roster, there just doesn't seem to be room for the 31-year-old Nix. His speed and defensive versatility should allow him to compete for a bench spot elsewhere should the Yankees indeed decide to move on.
