It appears Hichori Morimoto told reporters today that he'll probably exercise his international FA option. Morimoto could meet with Nippon Ham Fighters soon in order to inform them of his decision and make it official.
Said Morimoto, "I want to know just how much interest other clubs have in me. And then it's about individual team situations and whether or not I feel I can excel in that environment. This isn't about the contract."
