Nix agrees to contract terms with Phillies
DALLAS -- A baseball source confirmed that former Nationals outfielder/first baseman Laynce Nix agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Phillies.

The source said the Nats also offered a two-year deal to Nix.

"I guess he thought he was a better match with the Phillies," the source said.

This past season, Nix was productive during the first half, but injuries forced him to miss a lot of time after the All-Star break. In 124 games, Nix hit .250 with 16 home runs and 44 RBIs.
