Phillies acquire Jayson Nix from Orioles

22 Comments

The Phillies announced this morning that they have acquired infielder Jayson Nix from the Orioles for cash considerations. He’s expected to report to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Nix was batting just .167/.190/.198 across his first 100 plate appearances with the Orioles’ Triple-A affiliate this season. The 32-year-old had stints with the Phillies, Pirates, and Royals last season while hitting just .120 with one home run and a .325 OPS over 91 games. He’s a .212/.282/.345 hitter in the majors and hasn’t been anything close to a productive player for a few years now.

At this point, Nix is just infield depth to have around in the minors.
