Universiade 2017 team Taiwan’s roster

As for the players, the 22-man roster is quite appealing as some already have professional experiences and being forced by CTBA to participate in this tournament.  We’ll have quick brief on those players below.

  • 蘇智傑 (Su Chih-Chieh) who was the 2016 CPBL #1 overall draft.  Who recently just qualified himself with enough plate appearance (205PA) to compete in the CPBL individual stats leader board.  Su is now ranked #3 in batting average (.374) and #2 in the wRC+ (160) and expect to lead the team Taiwan batting lineup and show the rest of the world how good he can hit.
  • Catcher 張閔勛 (Chang Ming-Hsun) & pitcher 陳明軒 (Chen Ming-Hsuan) are still earning their tickets to the CPBL top team roster, so far both of them are in the farm team waiting for the opportunity to be call up.

Apart for the CPBL rookies, there are also some freshmen that was recently drafted by CPBL teams, including 4 from Uni-Lions, 2 from Lamigo, and 1 from Fubon/ Chinatrust.  The 2017 Universiade game will be their last tournamanet as amateur before turning pro.  You can also refer to our 2017 CPBL draft analysis for further information about them.
