Seibu Lions submit paperwork to post Hiroyuki Nakajima

by on Nov.28, 2011 @ 10:35 pm, under NPB

According to a number of reports (like Nikkan Sports, Sponichi, and Sports Hochi) the Seibu Lions announced that they filed the paperwork to post Hiroyuki Nakajima with the NPB earlier today.

What happens next: once the MLB commissioner notifies all MLB teams that Nakajima is available, they will have four days to submit their sealed bids.  The amount of the winning bid will then be given to the Seibu Lions and they will have four days to accept or reject the amount (Seibu will most likely go along with whatever bid they receive).  If the bid is accepted, the winning bidder will have a 30-day exclusive window to work out a deal with Nakajima.
