Takumi Kuriyama (Seibu) earned his domestic FA option with eight years of service time on the active roster.

"I feel nothing special about it.  [I have a contract] so it is not like I can exercise the option after this season," said Kuriyama.

Kuriyama signed a two-year deal before the start of the current season.
