Uni-Lions News: Brock Dykxhoorn
Brock Dykxhoorn, the 29-year-old Canadian right-hander, is returning for his fifth season in the CPBL. In the past few years, he has been the foundation of the Uni-Lions starting rotation.
After coming back from back surgery, which ended his 2022 season prematurely, in 2023, he posted a solid 2.83 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over 149.2 innings. During the 2023 postseason, Dykxhoorn made one appearance in Game 1 of the Playoff Series, where he allowed three earned runs over 6.2 innings against the Monkeys.

Uni-Lions News: Mario Sanchez
Mario Sanchez, the 29-year-old Venezuelan right-hander, is set to return to Taiwan for his second tour of the CPBL. Sanchez spent the first half of the 2023 season in the CPBL and posted a dominating 1.44 ERA and 0.93 WHIP across 62.2 innings.
Due to his stellar performance, in mid-season, his CPBL contract with the Uni-Lions was purchased by the KIA Tigers of the KBO, and Sanchez wound up finishing the second half of the 2023 season in Korea. However, he was having a little issue adjusting to another league, and at the end of the year, the Tigers decided not to re-sign Mario Sanchez for the next season.
