Harold Chirino has played in the minors and been on the Venezuelan national team.
He was signed by Milwaukee Brewers scout Reinaldo Hidalgo in November 2015.  He was 4-4 with a 3.12 ERA for the 2016 DSL Brewers but slipped to 1-6, 6.94 for the 2017 Helena Brewers (tying for 4th in the Pioneer League in defeats. He had Tommy John surgery in 2018.  Returning as a reliever, he was with the 2019 AZL Brewers Blue (2-0, 3.74 in 19 G, 41 K in 33 2/3 IP) and Rocky Mountain Vibes (2 H, 1 UER in 6 IP).
Chirino did not play in 2020 as the minor league season was wiped out by COVID-19. He started 2021 strong with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (1-0, 2 Sv, 2.70 in 7 G; 5 H, 16 K in 10 IP). He then made Venezuela's squad for the 2021 Americas Olympic Qualifier. 
On June 5, 2022, pitching for the Biloxi Shuckers in the Southern League, he failed to close out a win against the Pensacola Blue Wahoos in unprecedented fashion. With a 6-4 lead in the 9th, the first batter he faced, Troy Johnston reached on a throwing error by SS Cam Devanney. He then walked Griffin Conine, and plunked the next four consecutive batters in order - Luis Aviles Jr., Ray-Patrick Didder, Cobie Fletcher-Vance and Bubba Hollins. The last three hit batsmen each forced in a run as Pensacola walked off with a painful 7-6 win.
