Nakajima and Yankees still far apart on a contract

by Matt S.

The Yankees and Japanese infielder Hiroyuki Nakajima are still far apart in contract negotiations, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. The Yankees have explored sign-and-trade options for Nakajima, but simply lack any real use for him on their Opening Day roster. The 29-year-old is reportedly considering a return to his native Japan. Heyman hears that the two sides have until Tuesday to reach a deal, so expect a resolution either way next week.

  1. If this deal doesn’t get done Tuesday Chavez should be quickly signed right? It would be interesting to see if the Yankees could trade Nakajima and to see what they would get for him.
