Hiroyuki Nakajima to try his hand at third?

According to Sanspo Hiroyuki Nakajima is interested in trying his hand at third base next season.  Third base has been something of a problem area for the Lions over the last two seasons due to injury problems with Takeya Nakamura (88 games at third in 2009 and 46 games at this this year).

The article adds that if Nakajima took over at third, Nakamura could play first, and the Lions would be able to give Hideto Asamura a good look at short.  If Asamura is capable of taking over at short full-time, that could also pave the way for a Nakajima posting after the 2011 season.
