KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Infielder Jayson Nix has been added to the Kansas City Royals' active roster for the World Series against San Francisco in place of rookie Christian Colon.
The 32-year-old Nix hasn't played since the wild-card playoff win over Oakland on Sept. 30, when he entered in the 10th inning and struck out in the 11th. Kansas City is his eighth major league team.
Colon sacrificed as a pinch hitter in the 10th inning of that game, then drove in the tying run with an infield single on a 12th-inning chopper as the Royals rallied to win 9-8. Colon's only other postseason appearance was when he entered Game 2 of the AL Championship Series as a ninth-inning defensive replacement.
