The Los Angeles Dodgers have made a successful bid for infielder Norihiro Nakamura through the so-called posting system, former Kintesu Buffaloes representative Keisuke Ashitaka said Tuesday.

Ashitaka said he received word from the Japanese commissioner’s office the same day regarding the bid for the 31-year-old, but did not reveal the bidding price made to the Orix Buffaloes, created through the merger between the Orix BlueWave and Kintetsu Buffaloes.
