Athletics | Hiroyuki Nakajima learning new position

Oakland Athletics SS Hiroyuki Nakajima (hamstring) has played second base during his rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento. His 20-day rehab assignment ends Wednesday, May 22, and a decision needs to be made whether he returns to Oakland or he is optioned to Sacramento. It appears Nakajima will be optioned to the minors, although Melvin said no decision has been made. "His position is shortstop, that's what it's been his whole career, but he's open to playing other positions, too," Melvin said. SS Jed Lowrie is entrenched at shortstop in Oakland.
