Biographical Information[edit]

Outfielder Luis Terrero hit a home run in his first at-bat with the Chicago White Sox on May 1, 2007. He was signed as an amateur free agent by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 1997.

Playing for the Mexico City Diablos Rojos, Terrero was named Mexican League MVP in 2011. He led the league in runs (109), RBI (110), slugging (.770) and OPS (1.254), was second in average (.390) and homers (38, one shy of Jorge Guzman) and third in steals (30), posting the second 30-30 season in LMB history. That performance earned him a contract with the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles of Japan's Pacific League for 2012, but he hit only .153 in 34 games at the top level, and even if he hit well in the minor league Eastern League - .309 in 61 games, he was not retained after that season and returned to Mexico in 2013. His last season as a player was in 2016.

Terrero joined the Cincinnati Reds organization after retiring as a player. He became a hitting coach with the DSL Rojos in 2017, DSL Reds in 2018, and Greeneville Reds in 2019. Terrero was slated to return to Greeneville in 2020 before the coronavirus pandemic forced the cancellation of the minor league season. He managed the DSL Reds in 2021 before retuning to a coaching role in 2022 with the dual responsibilities of bench coach & assistant hitting coach for the ACL Reds. Terrero went back to the Dominican Summer League in 2023 as hitting coach for the DSL Reds.

In addition to his work for the Reds, Terrero also coached in the Dominican League during the offseason.
