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.

    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
