News: Nakajima (wrist) signed a three-year deal with the Orix Buffaloes of Japan, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.
Impact: Nakajima had worked his way up to the Triple-A level in 2014, but is a career .252 minor league hitter. The Buffaloes will pay him nearly $4 million per season, so it likely wasn't a tough decision for him to head back to his home country. Nakajima's 2014 season was cut short due to a fractured wrist, but he expects to be healthy heading into the upcoming campaign.
