Yankees Win Bid for SS Hiroyuki Nakajima

Ken Rosenthal of 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.
