Resolution with Nakajima to come next week

Resolution with Nakajima to come next week

by Matt S.

According to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com, the Yankees will have a resolution next week with Japanese infielder Hiroyuki Nakajima. The Yankees won exclusive negotiating rights with Nakajima earlier this month with a $2.5 million posting fee. They can’t guarantee him much in the way of playing time and he reportedly doesn’t want to play on the East Coast. Barring something creative like a sign-and-trade, he may opt to return to Japan. Hoch suspects that Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is waiting to see what happens before attempting to re-sign Eric Chavez.
