Yankees | Sign-and-trade for Hiroyuki Nakajima?
The New York Yankees won exclusive negotiating rights to Japanese League INF Hiroyuki Nakajima, and the team has 30 days to reach an agreement with him on a contract, or he'll return to the Seibu Lions, and become an unrestricted international free agent after next season. However, a sign-and-trade deal might get him to the major leagues immediately. He wants to play every day, but he is open to the idea of playing for the Yankees in a backup role. The team wants to use him as a quality backup to 2B Robinson Cano, SS Derek Jeter and 3B Alex Rodriguez, and do not necessarily want to trade him.
