2020 CPBL Mid-Season Draft

On July 20, a total of 123 amateurs entered the 2020 CPBL mid-season draft. At the end of the night, 48 young players were selected and set to begin a new chapter in their baseball career.

With the annual draft done and dusted, the teams will now have until September 21 to sign those players.

As always, here is the signing tracker for the 2020 CPBL Draft. We will try to keep this blog post updated as often as possible. (Last Updated: September 21, 2020)

  • All the contracts have been converted to the US Dollar instead of Taiwan Dollar. We use the exchange rate of 30 NTD to 1 USD.
  • Instead of using the standard monthly salary, all figures are in annual salary.
  • It is up to the teams to decide whether they want to release contract details or not. As per CPBL regulations, it is not mandatory to release the contract details.
  • Normally there are three parts in the contract for the amateur players: Signing bonus, annual salary and incentives.
  • Players who returned from the MLB / NPB system are not eligible for signing bonus. However, their annual salary tends to be higher, since the majority of them are CPBL first-team ready.

    • The Pirates signed Jhang Jin-De for $300,000 back in 2011 as an international free agent. He is the kind of guy should have a much better minor league stats if wasn’t for his never-ending injuries. But anyway, it’s always good to see them overseas players returning home.
