Motohiro Shima earned his domestic FA option today with eight years of service time on the active roster.  He signed a four-year contract in December 2013.  When asked if he might consider exercising the option down the road, he said he wanted discuss things with the organization first.

Kazuo Matsui earned his option for the second time.  "I didn't think I'd be able to earn it a second time, so it hasn't really sunk in.  An option is an option and I am happy about it, but right now, I want to focus on the current season."
