Seibu Lions: Yoshihiro Doi to exercise international FA option?

by on Oct.25, 2010 @ 3:50 pm, under NPB

It seems Yoshihiro Doi may be leaning towards exercising his international FA option and testing the MLB FA waters.

"The chances for my success in the Majors isn't 0%.  Since last summer, my left wrist has been feeling better and my condition is much better as well," said Doi.  "As my final goal, I'd like to work towards pitching off an MLB mound."

UPDATE @ 8:43pm - seems Doi wouldn't mind spending a couple of seasons at AA or AAA.
