We know that the New York Yankees have won the bid for Japanese short stop Hiroyuki Najajima, but Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports is reporting that Nakajima's agent has approached the Yankees about a possible sign and trade with his client.
His report says that the San Francisco Giants and the Chicago Cubs like Najajima, and may be interested, and it should be interesting to see what they would try and offer for the services of Nakajima. The problem is, Nakajima wants to play everyday, and he would likely not with the Yankees.
Later today, however, Buster Olney from ESPN reported that the Yankees have not discussed a sign and trade with Nakajima, and have only discussed what to do with his rights regarding the Yankees. So maybe all of these rumors are much ado about nothing, or maybe this could possibly spark the possibility of Nakajima being traded from the Yankees to a major league club where the short stop could play everyday.
