Royals add Jayson Nix to the World Series roster

2 Comments

Kansas City has made one change to the World Series roster, adding Jayson Nix and subtracting Christian Colon.

Colon is a 24-year-old rookie who debuted in July, whereas Nix is a 31-year-old veteran of seven seasons and eight teams. Nix is a career .212 hitter with a .627 OPS in 466 games as a big leaguer.

Nix will likely fill the same little-used utility man role that Colon did, basically serving as the emergency option at various positions if manager Ned Yost decides to make a whole bunch of late-inning moves.
