Tseng Jyun-Yue Files International Free Agency
On November 13, the Fubon Guardians’ 22-year-old right-hander, 曾峻岳 (Tseng Jyun-Yue), filed for international free agency, and the request was approved by his team.
This means that Tseng Jyun-Yue, the young fireballer, will be posted by the Fubon Guardians this offseason, and overseas teams can start bidding on Tseng’s negotiation rights via the CPBL posting system.
“We respect Tseng Jyun-Yue’s decision, and we will offer our utmost blessings and assistance in this matter,” the Fubon Guardians told CNA.
