CPBL Foreign Players Updates Volume #134
Uni-Lions News: Ryan Feierabend
On June 26, the Uni-Lions set to part ways with Ryan Feierabend. According to the team, due to the coronavirus pandemic, Feierabend asked to be let go so he can return to the United States to be with his family. The 34-year-old left-hander will pitch out of the bullpen until the end of June.
Now that was the official answer, however, to read between the lines, it was most likely due to contract disputes. Many speculate the Uni-Lions probably only signed Feierabend to a three-month contract and both parties were unable to reach an extension agreement.
