Lamigo Monkeys News: Michael Nix
According to CNA Sports, the Lamigo Monkeys have signed former Uni-Lions RHP Michael Nix for the 2018 CPBL season. The Monkeys have not confirmed the signing of Nix yet, but several sources have indicated that it is already a done deal.
Back in 2005, the 35-year-old RHP was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the 11th round. Over the years, Nix peaked at the Triple-A level, with combined records of 4.42 ERA and 1.58 WHIP over 79.1 innings.
Prior to his signing with the Uni-Lions in 2017, Nix produced an impressive 2.24 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with 100.2 innings of work in the Atlantic League, at the same time leading the league in ERA.
Nix was signed by the Uni-Lions in late July and made his CPBL first team debut in August. He wound up posting a 5.40 ERA and 1.46 WHIP across 9 starts and 56.2 innings, with 56 strikeouts and 16 walks.
