The corresponding move will likely be to place Chavez on the DL for his whiplash/concussion injury. Nix has played every position except first and catcher. He only has one option, and he’s no whiz with the bat, but he should be a solid replacement for Chavez while he’s out.
In 778 career at bats, Nix has a .207/.280/.368/.648 quadruple slash. Basically, he’s Cody Ransom with more defensive versatility. It doesn’t appear likely that the team will call up another utility player, as they seem content with starting Raul Ibanez in right field while Brett Gardner and Nick Swisher heal.
Curtis Granderson, God bless you for having to be the captain of that outfield.
