We’ll save you from any Brad Pitt jokes because they’re all pretty much played out at this point.

Nakajima got a two-year, $6.5 million contract with a $5.5 million option for 2015. The 30-year-old shortstop batted .311/.382/.451 with 13 home runs and 74 RBI in 136 games this past season for Japan’s Seibu Lions.
