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.
