廖健富 (Liao Chien-Fu) – March/ April MVP
At the age of 19, the Lamigo Monkeys’ 廖健富 (Liao Chien-Fu) becomes the youngest player in the league’s history to win the monthly MVP award.
The Monkeys 2017 first round draft pick is currently hitting .434/.505/.639 with 3 home runs over 26 games and 100 plate appearance. Liao is also topping in several hitting categories in the league.
- First place in batting average: .434

Bryan Woodall – March/ April MVP
It is the second for the Fubon Guardians’ Bryan Woodall to receive the monthly MVP award, with the last time being September 2015 during his time as a Brothers.
One thing about Bryan Woodall over the years is consistent, despite his shaky 2018 debut, he has returned to the ace that people know of, with a solid 2.97 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 28 strikeouts over 6 starts and 39.1 innings of work.
- First place in wins: 4
- Third place in ERA: 2.87
Woodall is good, but he’s no Mike Loree.
Loree was drilled in the back of the neck by a linedrive couple days ago. https://twitter.com/GOCPBL/status/992745240300683265 Not sure whether he will miss the next start or not, seems okay after the game though.
