CPBL Could Move to Four Foreign Players by 2020

The Chinatrust Brothers have submitted a proposal that all teams in the CPBL be allowed to increase their allocation of foreign players from three to four. It is not clear what the details are for the four players The CPBL already has a three foreign player limit but almost all teams use that allocation to staff a starting rotation. Putting four pitchers in the starting rotation would stagnate the development of pitchers from Taiwan. It is possible the CPBL will limit the four players to a maximum of three pitchers and one hitter or three hitters and one pitcher.
