Kyuji Fujikawa is set to earn his international FA option today.

As mentioned in a post yesterday, the Tigers will be doing their best to persuade him to stay.  A number of sources (Chunichi Shimbun, Sanspo) have reported that the Tigers might be willing to offer the right-hander a multi-year deal.

Sports Hochi adds that the Baltimore Orioles could be interested in Fujikawa.  They also mentions that scouts from teams like the Arizona Diamondbacks and Texas Rangers were seen at games he pitched in last year.
