Nix played 74 games in 2012 spread across 2B, SS, 3B and LF. He put up a mediocre .234/.306/.384 slash line and produced only a 0.2 WAR.
Another Yankee who saw significant time in the Yankees infield was Eric Chavez, who had 313 plate appearances in 113 games producing a slash line of .281/.348/.496 and 1.5 WAR.
Chavez played 1B and 3B last year and is turning 35 this season. He hasn't been discussed extensively this offseason by any team as of yet, although, with decent returns from last season and with his pedigree as a former Gold Glove winner, he will likely be seeking a raise from his 900k salary of last season, and may price himself out of the Yankees interest.
