More stuff on the guy:
The Dodgers needed only a minor league contract offer to lure the slugging Japanese third baseman to the U.S., where he will compete with Olmedo Saenz for right-handed platoon at-bats at both corner infield spots. However, Nakamura is unlikely to take significant playing time from scheduled starters Hee-Seop Choi and Jose Valentin, and he's also rehabilitating from offseason knee surgery. Nakamura has big-time power, averaging 42 homers over his three-year peak from 2000 to 2002, and he's not afraid to take a walk. But with his health and playing time both in question, he's only worth a gamble in deep NL-only leagues.
