The Seibu Lions will wait for Hiroyuki Nakajima (32) to make the next move. They are not planning to make adjustments to their current offer, which is believed to be four years at over 400 million yen. They are also said to be prepared to give him the number three and the everyday job at third base, batting third. They expect to hear from Nakajima some time in December.
