That’s probably the last time I can use this joke for a while. You’re officially spared.
According to a tweet from Patrick Newman of NPB Tracker, Japanese shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima won’t be posted. That means he won’t be free to sign with a major league team.
The tweet - there’s that word again- reads as follows:
“Official -- Nakajima posting denied”
The Orioles were counted among the teams that scouted Nakajima multiple times. I wrote about it here.
