The last time Laynce Nix was active for a game, the Phillies were 14-18 and a mere five games out of first place in the National League East. Who knew that those would be the glory days of the 2012 season? Anyway, Nix has been activated from the disabled list, where he has spent nearly three months recovering from a calf strain that he suffered on May 9 while running out a pinch-hit single.
Nix was one of the offensive stars of the early going, hitting .326/.392/.587 with two home runs, 11 RBI and seven run-in 51 plate appearances before his injury.
To make room for him on the roster, the Phillies designated Jason Pridie for assignment.
