Drafted in the supplemental 1st round (44th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2001 (signed for $925,000)
Nix is a better prospect than his older brother Laynce, an outfielder drafted in the fourth round by the Rangers last year. Jayson was under consideration as a supplemental first-rounder earlier this year but now projects as a second-rounder. His best tool is his bat. He has a short, quick stroke that generates surprising power for a 5-foot-11, 175-pounder. His enthusiasm is another plus. He reminds scouts of Rangers second-base prospect Jason Romano. A high school shortstop, Nix has the arm to play there as a pro but only average speed. He could wind up at second base, third base or even catcher.
