  1. If, as it now appears, Fubon will also be signing Jose Valdez and Mike Loree, does that mean we can expect to the Brothers, Uni-lions and Monkeys to sign fifth and/or sixth foreign players prior to the start of the 2022 season?

    Signing five or six foreign players to start the season makes sense to me in light of how frequently pitchers get hurt or lose effectiveness. It looks like every CPBL team used at least five foreign players in each of the 2020 and 2021 seasons.

    • Oh yeah, they announced the signings already. It’s been busy at work lately, I haven’t got time to update the blog yet.

      Hmmmm, me personally, I think most teams are done with their signings for now. They probably won’t make a move until they have seen their foreign players in action during spring training.

      For example, if certain players are clearly not adjusting well to Taiwan, then maybe we will see more signings before opening day.

      I’m think maybe teams would start bring in their 5th foreign players around May-ish?

      • It will probably take a while to bring in new foreigners once the season starts due to Covid. Are quarantine periods in Taiwan shorter for people fully vaccinated?
