Mexican League Diablos Rojos del Mexico announced the recruitment of Pirella on the 27th (Korea Standard Time).

Born in 1989, Pirella is a Venezuelan native who joined the New York Yankees in 2006 through an international amateur free agency.

After making his MLB debut with the Yankees in 2014, he played for the San Diego Padres, Toronto Blue Jays, and Philadelphia Phillies.

In 2020, he transferred to the Nippon Professional Baseball’s Hiroshima Toyo Carp. However, he had only 0.266 11 homers and 34 RBIs in 99 games and failed to renew his contract.

From 2021, he wore a Samsung uniform and performed better than expected.

In the 2021 season, he hit hard with a batting average of 0.286 (158 hits in 553 at-bats) 29 home runs, 97 RBIs, 102 runs (OPS + on-base plus slugging) of 0.854, and also played a batting average of 0.342 28 home runs, 109 RBIs, 102 runs and an OPS of 0.976 in 141 games.

However, his performance declined last year. His batting average of 0.285 with 16 homers, 80 RBIs and 66 runs scored in 139 games fell short of expectations with an OSP of 0.764.

Eventually, Samsung decided to end its companionship with Pirella. Afterwards, Pirella agonized over its next destination before choosing Mexico.

Diablo Rossos del Mexico is the most prestigious club in the Mexican league. Roberto Ramos and Henry Sosa (former LG Twins) and Seth Frankoff (former Doosan Bears) are tough teams.
