BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 A decent defender who can play every infield position and the occasional outfield corner, Nix was a capable replacement in 2012, when he started fewer than 60 games, completed just over 30 and made most of his plate appearances against lefties. He’s not suited to be a starter, but he was pressed into regular service as the Yankees’ other options on the left side of the infield dwindled. Nix wasn’t immune to the injury epidemic: A hamstring strain cost him most of July, and an R.A. Dickey knuckleball fractured his hand and ended his season on August 21st. Despite missing more than two months, he still made 300 plate appearances, and righties ate him alive (.220/.278/.301) in an everyday role. Joe Girardi compounded the problem by batting Nix second more than 20 times, but the real damage was done when the Yankees lost their infield alternatives.
2013 Take note, Eduardo Nunez: this is what a utility infielder looks like. After being promoted in mid-May, Nix split time between four positions, playing all of them well. However, he didn’t hit, though he has shown non-negligible power in past seasons. Nix is best in moderation, and with the left side of the Yankees infield a combined 75 years old, Jeter recovering from a fractured ankle, and Rodriguez expected to be out until August while he recovers from offseason hip surgery, the Yankees will want to find a backup with a better bat in case of additional extended absences.
2012 The lesser of the Nix brothers, excellent fielder Jayson Nix is a career .195/.268/.335 hitter against right-handed pitching (588 PAs) and the occasional home run represents the totality of his offensive game.
2011 Hitting just .163 when the White Sox released him in June, Nix caught on with the Indians, who just didn't have enough unproductive infielders at the time, and filled in at second and third base while somehow tying for second on the team with 13 home runs in just 78 games. Nix has always been a solid defender, but those home runs are really the only kind thing to say about him offensively. Having average power but otherwise being a pure out machine just doesn't work in a full-time role. Nix will get a shot at the everyday third-base job in spite of his limitations, holding down the fort until Lonnie Chisenhall is deemed ready.
2010 Picked up off of Colorado's scrap heap, Nix was competing for the everyday second base job in spring training, but a strained quad and a solid performance by Chris Getz limited him to bench duty at five positions once he returned. Nix has some value, as he's a defensive whiz at second, can play on the left side of the infield in a pinch, and he beats up left-handers, nailing them for eight home runs in 135 PAs last year. As long as Nix's manager picks the right spots for him, he can help.
2009 Nix won the job at second base in spring training, but it was all downhill from there, as he went just 5-for-45 in April, and that was that. He did put up big numbers in Triple-A while showcasing his always-outstanding defensive skills. The Rockies released him in late October, but he quickly signed a big-league deal with the White Sox, who will pit him in a spring training battle with prospect Chris Getz for their second-base job.
2008 The Rockies' lack of second-base options could be a boon for Jayson Nix, who played well at Colorado Springs and for Team USA last year.
2007 Jayson Nix has never adjusted to hitting in the upper levels of the minors. He and brother Laynce are both in danger of washing out of baseball due to a lack of strike zone recognition, but once they do, they could always donate their extra Ys to needy minor leaguers.
2006 In the words of Harlan Ellison, `Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice and I`m a pervert.` Nix has been embarrassed twice at Tulsa, and while the first time around some of it could be blamed on not making contact often enough, everything else got worse last year. The Rockies love his defense, and are being patient with him. They think they can work on his swing, correcting his tendency to fly open trying to pull the ball. He`s still on the young side and could return to being the hitter who used to spray the ball to all fields, but then again, some guys just can`t get past Double-A.
2005 Took a step back as one of the youngest players in the Texas League, hitting .213 after a great '03 season at Visalia. Nix runs well, hits for power, and could be a solid second baseman, but his batting eye may limit him for a while. There's talk of moving him to Triple-A this year, but you'd like to see him fare well in the Texas League first. Either way, one bad season doesn't wreck a prospect, so keep him on your radar screen.
2004 Laynce's younger brother had a breakthrough season of his own, tying Josh Barfield for the minor league-lead in doubles. Nix was also judged the best defensive second baseman in the Cal League, something supported by his performance statistically. In particular, he's got a strong arm and the lateral range to be a plus defender from here on out, and he hangs tough on the deuce. He's a lot more interesting as a prospect than that projection suggests.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do the Yankees really need a 3B from elsewhere?
(Alex from Anaheim)
The Yanks will have to overpay to replace A-Rod, and I think other teams know it. Plus, beyond Headley, there's not much 3B talent available, and the asking price for Headley is reportedly too steep, even for the Yanks. New York has enough firepower elsewhere to hold the line with Eric Chavez and Jayson Nix, or they could give Brandon Laird another look if either one falters. Chavez is having a fine year (he's been my AL-only Value Pick for the last few weeks, just as a fill-in) and Nix has flashed the bat now and again (like he did last night against the M's). I would stand pat unless something fantastic comes along. (Michael Street)
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Christine. So why is there generally not much love for Cord Phelps? Most og the mil equivalencies and stuff show him to project out to around a .290/.380/4.40 at his peak, he switch-hits, plays a decent 2B (from what I hear), and has had experience at SS (Stanford) and 3B (AZ fall league). Only about 8 out of 32 ML 2B had OPS above .800 last year. Seems like he could be a beter than average 2B for a number of years. What say you? Thanks.
(jimbeau from LeftCoast)
I'm a bit perplexed by it as well... I mean, really, given that the only thing at stake is finishing in fourth or fifth place, I'd really rather see Phelps at second and Jared Goedert at third than Orlando Cabrera and Jayson Nix. Phelps and Goedert may not have all-star ceilings, but when the alternatives are locks to rank among the worst regulars at their positions, why commit to that? (Christina Kahrl)
2010-10-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should the Indians be more resigned (Jayson Nix), hopeful (Cord Phelps), risk-taking (Lonnie Chisenhall), or irrationally imaginative (trade prospects for Chone Figgins + much cash, or Travis Hafner for Figgins straight up) with their third base situation? I am not excited about a potential Brandon Inge Era.
(buffum from Austin TX)
When you are where the Indians are, I think a combination of hopeful and risk-taking is the way to go about things. The last thing we need is to bring Figgins aboard so we can have this conversation again in three years when his contract is expiring. (Marc Normandin)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on how the Olympic team is doing so far and/or Matt LaPorta getting drilled in the head?
(Steve from ND)
I know they have Jayson Nix playing second base, which makes it hard for me to take the whole thing seriously. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-05-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)how bad must the rest of my nl fantasy team be when i've got furcal, chipper, and berkman but am in 7th place out of 8?
(nicopad from brooklyn)
Jayson Nix-level bad. (Caleb Peiffer)
