Wei Chuan Dragons News: Rosell Herrera

Another foreign player is leaving Taiwan. On October 24, the Wei Chuan Dragons manager announced that their foreign hitter Rosell Herrera will leave Taiwan and return home at the end of the month.

As of today, the 29-year-old Dominican infielder posted a .280/364/.394 slash line with six home runs and a 125 wRC+ across 319 plate appearances for the Dragons.

The team will soon call up rookie 王順和 (Wang Shun-Ho) to cover the gap at third base. The 19-year-old infielder joined the Dragons in 2020 as the team’s fourth-round pick. He was named the best third baseman at the 2019 WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup.

With Rosell Herrera leaving, the Dragons now have Bryan Woodall, Tazawa Junichi and Daniel Corcino as their foreign players for the remaining of the 2021 CPBL season.

Further Readings

Foreign players come and goes, therefore we compiled a foreign players tracker to keep track of all the foreign players signing for the 2021 CPBL season.


  1. Looks like Herrera will lead the 2021 Dragons in on-base percentage, although he didn’t hit with the power the Dragons might have been hoping for. I assume that Herrera probably wants to play in the Dominican Winter League, since the Dragons aren’t likely to make the post-season.

    • Yeah, I suspected that too because a few months ago, Rosell Herrera’s name appeared on a LIDOM team’s preliminary roster.

      Also, I think his 2020 contract with the Dragons probably expired at the end of October too. Since they have no chance to make it to the playoff, might as well let him go home.

      Would be interesting to see which foreign hitter the Dragons will go for next season. I hope they will offer a contract to Wladimir Balentien or Eric Thames.

      Those two would be a good signing for the commerical purposes, also assuming they are healthy, maybe can provide some power to their lineup.
