Pirella enters the third year of his Korean season. He played 140 games in the 2021 season, his first season in Korea, and made a big success with a batting average of 0.286, 158 hits, 29 homers, 97 RBIs and 102 points.
His last season was even more dazzling. He played 141 games and recorded a batting average of 0.342, 192 hits, 28 homers, 109 RBIs, 102 runs, an on-base percentage of 0.411, and a slugging percentage of 0.565. He ranked second in batting average, most hits, home runs, RBIs, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage, and became the league’s only scorer with three-digit runs scored. Along with Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom Heroes) and Na Seong-beom (KIA Tigers), he was named in the Golden Glove outfielder category.
As a result, Samsung signed with Pirella for a maximum total of $1.7 million ($100,000 down payment, $1.2 million annual salary, $400,000 in incentives), an increase of $500,000 from the previous year.
It is a Pirella with hot performance, always running base play that does not spare the body, sincerity, and baseball ability.
