2021 CPBL Draft Results, Signing Tracker

As always, here is the signing tracker for the 2021 CPBL Draft. We will try to keep this blog post updated as often as possible. (Last Updated: September 12, 2021)

  • All the contracts have been converted to the US Dollar instead of New Taiwan Dollar. We use the exchange rate of 30 NTD to 1 USD.
  • Instead of using the standard monthly salary, all figures are in annual salary.
  • It is up to the teams to decide whether they want to release contract details or not. As per CPBL regulations, it is not mandatory to release the contract details.
  • Normally there are three parts in the contract for the amateur players: Signing bonus, annual salary and incentives.
  • Players who returned from the MLB / NPB system are not eligible for signing bonus. However, their annual salary tends to be higher, since the majority of them are CPBL first-team ready.
