The 32-year-old Nix has struggled at the Triple-A level in both the Baltimore and Philadelphia organizations this season, posting a .162/.196/.222 combined slash line over 195 plate appearances. He fared even worse in 91 big-league plate appearances between three teams last season, finishing with a .120/.169/.157 slash line. Outside of versatility and experience, Nix doesn't seem to have much left to offer.

Nix was acquired by the Phillies for cash considerations.

Going to the Phillies at least increases Nix's chance of reaching the majors, considering how shallow they could be in the infield. However, Nix hasn't exactly impressed in the minors during 2015, hitting .167/.190/.198 in Triple-A. He'll try to improve at the Phillies' affiliate in Lehigh.

Nix was reassigned to minor league camp Friday, MLB.com reports.

Nix did not show enough this spring to break camp with the big club, so his season will begin with Triple-A Norfolk. He is expected to play a utility role in the minors and could be an option for the Orioles at some point this season.

Nix and the Orioles have agreed to a contract, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.Nix will likely be a non-roster invitee to spring training, after spending last season with three organizations. He offers experience and solid defense at multiple infield positions, but his .212/.282/.345 career slash line speaks for itself. Nix will hope to make the Opening Day roster as a utility infielder.

Nix declined an assignment to Triple-A Omaha on Monday and is now a free agent, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

Nix was part of the Royals' roster that lost the World Series to the Giants, but he didn't play much of a role and was just an added roster spot. In fact, the 32-year-old hit just .120/.168/.157 with a home run and four RBI over 83 at-bats between the Royals, Phillies and Pirates last season. Despite his down year, he will test the free agent waters this offseason in an attempt to latch on to a big league roster, most likely as a bench player.

Nix was activated to the Royals' active roster Saturday.

The Royals had to activate Nix or else their waiver claim of him from the Pirates would be negated. Christian Colon was optioned to Double-A Northwest Arkansas in a corresponding move. Nix may very well see a start or two at second base this weekend with Omar Infante (shoulder) ailing, but he's hit just .133/.188/.173 in 82 plate appearances at the major league level this season.
