CPBL Foreign Players Updates Volume #68
Lamigo Monkeys News: Michael Nix
The Lamigo Monkeys announced the re-signing of Michael Nix for the 2019 season. The 35-year-old right-hander will return to Taiwan for his third season in the CPBL.
In 2018, Nix posted a 3.72 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, 4.63 FIP, 121 ERA+ and 2.01 WAR over 142.2 innings of work. Despite a slow start in the first-half season, Nix managed to turn everything around after the All-Star break.
The CPBL named Michale Nix the September pitcher MVP after his dominating performance where he won four games with a 1.04 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 26 innings.
With the Monkeys having a busy spring camp schedule with three exhibition series against the NPB’s Chiba Lotte Marines and Rakuten Golden Eagles, would be interesting to see if Nix will get a chance to start against the Japanese teams.
