Born in Venezuela in 1996, Jesus joined the Boston Red Sox through an international amateur free agency in 2014. He played for minor league teams under the Boston, San Francisco Giants and Miami Marlins for the next nine seasons, and made the major league appearance with the Miami Marlins in the 2023 season.

He played 178 games in the Minor League, recording 49 wins, 45 losses and an ERA of 4.01 in 749 ⅓s. He also played as a representative for Venezuela at the World Baseball Classic in 2023. In the Major League, he pitched in two games and recorded an ERA of 11.37.

He also has experience in the ball and strike determination system (ABS), which will be introduced to the KBO league from next year, so he is expected to adapt quickly.

Jesus, who finished his contract, said, “I am grateful to have a chance to start anew in Korea. Thinking that I am playing in the KBO League, I have high expectations. I will prepare hard to join the team in my best physical condition. I will become a player who can contribute to the victory of the Kiwoom Heroes next season.”
