2022 CPBL Draft Results, Signing Tracker

As always, here is the signing tracker for the 2022 CPBL Draft. We will try to keep this blog post updated as often as possible. (Last Updated: July 26, 2022)

  • 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.

  1. i like the fact that the CPBL is giving so many draft picks to the expansion team right at the top. The Hawks will get eight quality draft picks, and some of the next 22 could be diamonds in the rough.

    The Dragons are competitive in their second season, and that’s got to be better for the league than the MLB way where the expansion teams don’t get the draft picks and are usually terrible for several seasons. Better competition will grow the most interest in the CPBL as a whole.

    • I still can’t believe how fast this Dragons team is improving. At first, I thought it would take them at least 3-4 years to be semi competitive. I was so wrong on that.

      Hopefully this Dragons route can provide some guidance to the Hawks.

  2. Looks like the weakest draft class in terms of big ticket additions in years. Will 2023 potentially a better year in that regard?

    • I guess it all depends on the definition of that. I think on the amateur side, it is a pretty solid class. Not the best class, but not so bad either.

      Yes, it’s missing a lot of high-tier former MLB and NPB players. But when projecting 5 years down the line, maybe it’s not so bad?

      When looking back at 2016 and 2017 draft, it is quite similar to that. Not a lot of former MLB and NPB system players. But a lot of them are now primary players in the CPBL.

      I guess it is one of those things that we won’t know for at least 4-5 years.
