RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Pirela was expected to begin last season as a utility infield option for the Yankees, and perhaps even challenge Stephen Drew for a platoon role at second base, but a concussion suffered in spring training ended up impacting the rest of his season. Once he returned in May, he struggled in the early going before being sent down to the minors, and he continued going back and forth between Triple-A and the majors for the remainder of the season. As he enters his age-26 season, Pirela has impressed at the upper levels of the minors but hasn't been able to translate that level of play to the big league club. The Padres saw something they liked as they traded for him in the offseason and he'll be in the mix for a infield job this spring.

2015

Pirela impressed at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last season, putting himself on the radar for the Yankees as a potential fit for a bench role in 2015, and even earning a brief callup in September. Most likely, the organization will address the vacancy at second base via free agency, but the right-handed hitting infielder delivered double-digit homers and steals at Triple-A while splitting most of his playing time between the keystone and left field. Pirela doesn't walk often, but he puts a lot of balls in play and has consistently maintained that profile while ascending through the upper levels of the minor leagues. An Opening Day utility role isn't out of the question, depending on the team's alternatives during spring training.
