Hideaki Wakui earned his domestic FA option today with eight years of service time on the active roster.

In speaking to reporters, Wakui avoided making any direct comments about the option and said, "My [job] is to focus on the season and starting."

The Lions are interested in keeping Wakui in Saitama, but the hurler did turn down a two-year deal this past winter.
