The media learned today that 39-year-old Fumiya Nishiguchi doesn't plan on exercising his international FA option.

Said Nishiguchi, "I was was going to exercise the option, I would have thought about it more before now.  I'll do my best with Seibu."

Sanspo also notes that Masahiro Abe probably won't exercise his option either and that Tomoki Hoshino and Tomoaki Sato have placed offers from the Lions on hold.

...Fumiya Nishiguchi developed a fever on Monday and did not attend practice at Seibu Dome.  He instead went to a hospital for treatment.  Nishiguchi is currently scheduled to pitch on the 29th against the Chiba Lotte Marines.  Depending on how he's feeling, his start may be pushed back a bit.

...Masahiro Abe earned his domestic FA rights on Monday.

4:13pm JST

...18-11-0 (2nd place):  The Lions went 4-2 this past week.  Hisashi Takayama basically came out of no where to help his team with a 11-for-22 (.500) week that also included 4 RBI and 4 R.

Takeya Nakamura appears to be slowly coming out of his slump.  He went 6-for-22 (.272) with 1 HR, 4 RBI, and 6 R.  Incidentally, the team is 6-0 when Nakamura hits a home run this year.  The offense should get a little boost with Hiroyuki Nakajima's likely return on Tuesday.

Upcoming schedule: the Lions begin a 9-game stretch on Tuesday.  They will be play three against Lotte (at Seibu Dome), three against Nippon Ham (at Sapporo Dome), and three against Rakuten (at Seibu Dome).
