According to Sanspo, Yoshinori Tateyama will be exercising his international FA option.  Sports Hochi mentions that as of yesterday, Tateyama was scheduled to meet with the Nippon Ham Fighters today in order to inform them of his decision.

Seems Tateyama has had an interest in playing in the Majors a few years now.  Those feelings apparently peaked when Koji Uehara when Stateside.
