Kan Otake earned his domestic FA option today with eight years of service time on the active roster.
"I am not really thinking much about the FA option. My goal right now is to win a championship this year," said Otake.
Hiroshima Carp executive Kiyoaki Suzuki said to reporters, "We will pull all our efforts together [to keep him here] once the season ends."
