Sponichi reports that there's a fairly good chance that Tsuyoshi Wada will exercise his international FA option (he earned it today after 9 years of service time on the active roster).
According to an unnamed Softbank Hawks' rep, Wada has a strong desire to play in the Majors and will probably exercise the option.
In response to questions about the option, Wada said, "I'm happy [about the option]. But I don't have time to think about it right now. I haven't gotten a real offer from the [Hawks] yet, but they did tell I was a needed."
