RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Pirela spent most of 2016 on the minor league DL due to plantar fasciitis, but he took a step back at Triple-A El Paso in the 35 games he was able to play, hitting just .248/.295/.387 in his first run in the Pacific Coast League. Much of his value to big league organizations comes with his defensive versatility, though last season at El Paso, he spent more time in the outfield than ever before despite seeing most of his time with the Padres at second base. With the expected return of Cory Spangenberg from injury and the emergence of Ryan Schimpf, Pirela figures to spend the bulk of 2017 in the minors after re-upping with the Padres on a minor league deal this offseason. A right-handed hitter, Pirela has a .301/.352/.428 line over four years at the Triple-A level, but he's posted a .568 OPS in 59 big league games with the Yankees and Padres since debuting in 2014. It's fair to wonder if he will ever hit enough against big league pitching to become more than a part-time player.

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.
