Enmanuel De Jesús has pitched as high as AAA and has been on the Venezuelan national team.
He was signed by Boston Red Sox scouts Eddie Romero and Angel Escobar in July 2013.  He was 5-5 with a 3.15 ERA for the 2014 DSL Red Sox. Coming stateside in 2016, he excelled for the GCL Red Sox (6-2, 1.66 ERA, .99 WHIP) and had a 2.70 ERA in one game for the Lowell Spinners. Had he qualified, he would have been second in the Gulf Coast League in ERA (behind Williams Ramirez) and was one win behind leader David Oca.  He split 2016 between Lowell (2-1, 2.42 in 4 G) and the Greenville Drive (2-4, 5.96 in 10 G).
In 2017, he appeared for Lowell (3-3, 3.40) and Greenville (0-1, 6.17). He allowed one run in two innings for the Navegantes del Magallanes in his Venezuelan Winter League debut. The next year, he was with Greenville (8-5, Sv, 3.93) and the Salem Red Sox (0-2, 11.17). He tied for 9th in the Red Sox chain in wins. In the winter, he was 1-0 with a 3.29 ERA for Magallanes. He had a 9-9, 3.58 for Salem. He tied Jhonathan Díaz for second in the Red Sox chain in wins, three behind Kyle Hart and was 4th with 122 K (between Hunter Haworth and Brayan Bello). The 2020 minor league season was wiped out by the COVID-19 pandemic.
He joined Díaz on the Venezuelan team for the 2020 Americas Olympic Qualifier (held in 2021, but retaining the 2020 label, as did the 2020 Olympics - both were delayed due to the pandemic). He got the start against Team Canada and allowed one hit (to Jacob Robson) and three walks in four innings while striking out three. He was succeeded by Oddanier Mosqueda and Venezuela finished with a four-pitcher one-hitter. Things did not go so well for him against the USA; relieving Erick Leal with a 4-2 deficit and one out in the 7th, he allowed a double to Eric Filia and a single to Triston Casas before being replaced by Harold Chirino.  He split the rest of the year between the Portland Sea Dogs (5-2, Sv, 3.97 in 21 G) and Worcester Red Sox (0-1, 3.60 in 1 G).
