MLB teams in need of a shortstop but without the resources to go after Jose Reyes or Jimmy Rollins will have another intriguing option, as Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that Hiroyuki Nakajima will be posted by his team in Japan.

Nakajima has long been a star in Japan, but the history of Japanese hitters–and infielders, in particular–coming to MLB is a mixed bag.

I think he could be a decent option for a lot of teams. He'll be relatively cheap and has more power than most Japanese hitters.
