The Yankees announced Thursday that they were unable to agree to contract terms and will pass on signing Japanese infielder Hiroyuki Nakajima.
Some Yankees fans have expressed outrage, but Brian Cashman has kept the organization’s best interests at heart by waiting for the right deal.
According to WFAN’s Jon Heyman, the New York Yankees won exclusive rights to sign Japanese All-Star shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima. The Yankees now have a 30-day window to complete the signing process.
