CPBL

Why the Uni-President Lions?

  • Tainan City, home of the Lions, is one of the oldest and largest cities in Taiwan
  • Tainan Municipal Baseball Stadium is directly under the flight path of airplanes flying in and out of the nearby Tainan Airport.
  • The team has talent and looks good on paper but has been thwarted time and time again in the last few years by poor on-the-field field management and front office executive decisions.
  • Employed in their organization at one time or another former player and SNY analyst Nelson Figueroa, Columbia Fireflies pitching coach Jerome Williams, former manager Mickey Callaway, and Generation K member Bill Pulsipher.

KBO

Why the LG Twins?

  • Represent a major metropolitan area.
  • Share Seoul (and Jamsil Baseball Stadium) with a rival team and compete for fans.
  • Have been a team that, on paper, should compete but just have not been able to put things together over the last few years
  • Have a strong pitching staff in 2020.
  • Staff ace, Casey Kelly, has been denied numerous wins over the years due to anemic hitting or a leaky bullpen despite quality starts.
  • LG Corporation spends money on the team but does not always allocate that money wisely.
  • Retired the number 41, worn by one of the best right-handed pitchers in team history.

NPB

Why the Yakult Swallows?

  • The Swallows play in Tokyo, the largest city in Japan.
  • The Swallows are overshadowed by the other team that plays in Tokyo, which has had much more success over the years, the Yomiuri Giants.
  • For the first decade of their existence, the Swallows did not end a single season with a winning record.
  • Meiji Jingu Stadium opened in 1964, the same year as Shea Stadium.
  • The best player in team history was a pitcher.

CPBL PITCHER OF THE WEEK

Brock Dykxhoorn

7.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 4 BB, 4 K

Brock Dykxhoorn was born in Goderich, Ontario on July 02, 1994. He attended St. Anne’s Catholic Secondary School in Clinton, Ontario, a school known its sports teams, but was initially more of a hockey player than a baseball player. After getting cut from the hockey team, he began focusing on baseball, spending a lot of time on travel ball teams, as the St. Anne’s baseball program was still very much in its infancy. He was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 20th round of the 2012 MLB Draft just prior to graduation, but elected not to go pro, instead enrolling at West Virginia University. He was solid in his freshman year, posting a 3.15 ERA in 34.1 innings, but transferred to Central Arizona College, a community college in Coolidge, Arizona for his sophomore season in order to expedite his quest to become a professional. After posting a 2.77 ERA in 78.0 innings for the Vaqueros, he was drafted by the he Houston Astros in the 6th round of the 2014 MLB Draft. He signed for $250,000 and finished up the year with the Greeneville Astros, where he posted a 4.31 ERA in 31.1 innings.

Over the next few years, he would slowly climb the Houston Astros minor league ladder, generally posting pedestrian numbers with underwhelming peripherals. He spent the 2015 season with the Low-A Quad Cities River Bandits and posted a 3.88 ERA in 109.0 innings. He spent the 2016 season with the High-A Lancaster JetHawks and posted a 5.02 ERA in 123.2 innings. He spent the 2017 season with the Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks and posted a 4.62 ERA in 99.1 innings. He split the 2018 season between Hooks and the Triple-A Fresno Grizzlies and posted a combined 3.97 ERA in 127.0 innings.

Dykxhoorn was released by the Astros organization on November 13, 2018 and signed with the SK Wyverns in Korea just a few days later. The right-hander was not particularly great with the Wyverns and he was placed on waivers that June. The Lotte Giants picked him up and he finished the season with them; all in all, he posted a 4.34 ERA in 149.1 innings.

After going unsigned over the winter, Dykxhoorn signed with the Uni-President Lions in late June 2020 to replace the foreign pitchers who had already departed from the team. In three starts in Taiwan so far, Dykxhoorn has a 4.72 ERA in 13.1, with 9 hits allowed, 7 walks, and 9 strikeouts.

Dykxhoorn throws from a low-three-quarters arm slot, and despite being 6’8”, 250-pounds, the right-hander does not throw particularly hard. His fastball generally sits in the high-80s-to-low-90s, topping out at 93 MPH, but it appears faster thanks to his size and extension, sneaking up on hitters. He complements the pitch with a slider and a changeup, both of which are below-average offerings that occasionally flash better. The slider, which sits in the low-80s, lacks horizontal and vertical movement, while the change, which sits in the low-to-mid-80s, generally is flat, though he does replicate his arm speed well when throwing it. His fastball command is better than his command of his secondary pitches. Despite the substandard stuff, Dykxhoorn pitches with confidence, attacking hitters.
