Carlos Mirabal – Pro RHP who spent 6 seasons in the NPB seeking player-coach or coaching gig
Carlos Mirabal is a veteran professional pitcher who after one season of independent professional baseball took his pro career to Taiwan for three years before signing on to play in the Nippon Professional Baseball league in Japan in the early 2000’s. After six seasons in Japan, Carlos signed on to play with the Newark Bears of the Atlantic League from 2006-2008.
After his 2008 season he decided to open his own personal training business which he has been doing ever since while also playing in a local men’s league. In 2015 he made a professional comeback at the age of 42, signing on with Trois Rivieres of the CanAm League.
In 2016 Carlos started his professional coaching career when he signed on as the pitching coach for the Rockland Boulders of the CanAm League. He is now looking to continue with a professional coaching career overseas. Carlos is still actively pitching and is also open to a player-coach role.
Now at the age of 44 Carlos has a lot in the tank, claiming to throw an 87-90 mph fastball (2-seam / 4-seam) complimented by a knuckle curve, modified circle change-up, and a slider. He is working on putting together a video with his velocity reading.
Any club interested in potentially acquiring Carlos as a coach or player-coach is encouraged to reach out to him.
