Royals add Nix to active roster and drop Colon

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Infielder Jayson Nix was added to the Kansas City Royals' active roster for the World Series against San Francisco in place of rookie Christian Colon.

"Christian's more of an offensive option and Nix is more of a defensive option. Breaking it down and looking at all of our scenarios, especially in the National League, we decided to go with the defensive option," Royals manager Ned Yost said before Tuesday's opener.

"We're more apt to probably double switch in some spots, and you quite frankly like Nix's defense a little better at third. Nix and Colon are very solid second basemen. They both play a solid short, but we just felt a little more comfortable with Nix at third."
