This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy CPBL series.
Fubon Guardians (10-13) at Uni-President Lions (10-16)
Wednesday, May 20, 6:35 AM EDT
RHP Chiang Kuo-Hao (2-2, 5.92 ERA) vs LHP Logan Darnell (0-0, 0.00 ERA)
Tuesday's series-opener between these two sides was rained out. The Lions have elected to push back Logan Darnell's scheduled start to Wednesday's game instead, while the Guardians are skipping Bryan Woodall and going with local product Chiang Kuo-Hao. As Chiang and Woodall have the same price tag on Dream11 and the rest of the contest is unchanged, the lineups and captain recommendations given below are unchanged from those which appeared in this spot for Tuesday's game (outside of swapping in Chiang for Woodall, of course). Chiang, a 22-year-old righty, struggled to a 7.40 ERA in his 20.2-inning debut last season. His 5.92 ERA through four starts this year looks rather uninspiring as well, but it's actually a fair amount better than the league-average mark of 6.32. The left-handed Darnell will be making his season debut, as he was delayed by the mandatory two-week quarantine for foreigners returning to Taiwan. Darnell made seven appearances at the MLB level for the Twins back in 2014. Since then, he spent several seasons in the upper minors before heading to the Mexican League last year, where he recorded a 5.17 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP, both solid numbers in a very high-scoring league.
