WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Zorrilla was one of the top players the Pirates signed in the 2020-21 international signing period.  He runs well, and has the ability to hit and hit for power if he develops more consistency at the plate.

2021
DSL:  000/500/000, 1 AB, 1 BB, 1 K, 1-1 SB

Zorrilla was recovering from a shoulder injury and got only two plate appearances.  He played a few innings in the field at short and third.

The Pirates brought Zorrilla to minor league spring training in March 2022.  Hopefully, he’ll be healthy and able to open the season in the Gulf Coast League.
