  1. What’s the rule about how many foreign players can keep on the roster in 2024. Is it three pitchers and one position player? If so, the Hawks should sign one more foreign pitcher and one more foreign position player.

    • They can technically sign as many as they want and keep them in the minor league. Each team can only “register” 4 foreign players, those 4 would be eligible for call-up and down between CPBL major league and minor league. Each team can only keep 3 “registered foreign players” in the major league. Once a team “de-register” a foreign player, they can not “re-register” them again.

      TSG Hawks this season can have 4 “registered foreign players” in the major league, as long it’s not all pitchers or hitters. So yeah, they can sign maybe another foreign pitcher, don’t register him and just stash him in the minor league as backup.

  2. It seems like the Guardians, Uni-Lions and Monkeys should all sign a fifth foreign pitcher, most likely out of the Indy-A leagues (Japan or U.S.), to pitch at the minor league level so that they have a fifth pitcher on hand when one of the first four foreigners gets hurt or pitches badly and needs to be released.
