CPBL Foreign Players Updates Volume #221
Fubon Guardians News: Luis Escobar
On May 23, the Fubon Guardians released Luis Escobar. According to the team, the 25-year-old right-hander requested to be let go due to personal reasons, and the team approved it.
Maybe it was the case of adjustment to playing in Asia? Despite Luis Escobar’s dominating performance in the Mexican League, the results didn’t transfer to the CPBL.
After his shaky outings in spring training, the team assigned Escobar to the farm team to begin the season. During his time in the CPBL minor league, he posted a 5.93 ERA and 1.68 WHIP over 13.2 innings.
Luis Escobar finished his brief 2022 CPBL season without making a single appearance with the CPBL first team. The Fubon Guardians told the media they would continue to look for other suitable foreign players.
Foreign players come and goes, therefore we compiled a foreign players tracker to keep track of all the foreign players signing for the 2022 CPBL season.
