Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Yankees have won the bid for Japanese shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima.

The terms of the winning bid aren’t yet known. The Yankees now have a 30-day exclusive negotiating window to work out a contract. Nakajima, a 29-year-old shortstop, is a .302 career hitter in Japan and has surpassed at least 16 home runs and 15 stolen bases in each of the last four seasons. If a contract is agreed upon, he would fit as a utility player for now.

    Jack Curry tweeted earlier today that it is possible for both Nakajima and Nunez could make the team as utility players.  If Nakajima can play some short/third, that will help the Yankees because Jeter and ARod will be getting a lot more DH time this year.
