Jayson Nix clears waivers, accepts Triple-A assignment

Jayson Nix was re-signed last week for $900K and was immediately designated for assignment. It was agreed that if he cleared waivers, he’d accept an assignment to Triple A Scranton/Wilkes Barres. Well, he cleared waivers and while he won’t be on the 40-man roster, he will still be with the organization.

Nix batted .243/.306/.384/.690 with four home runs and 18 RBI in 74 games with the Yankees in 2012.

One thought on “Jayson Nix clears waivers, accepts Triple-A assignment

  1. Also, not being on the 40 man roster means his salary won't count against the Yankees for MLB Luxury Tax purposes.

    Also, as a side note Andruw Jones has signed to play in Japan for about $3.6MM. Thank you
