HOW ACQUIRED: Transferred from Estudiantes and signed as a Young Designated Player on July 26, 2019. Returned to Estudiantes on loan for the rest of 2019.
Pellegrini is a promising young attacking player that can cover ground, is a good passer and can score an occasional goal. He's most comfortable on the left wing but can also play centrally.
OUTSIDE MLS: Pellegrini joined Estudiantes Academy at the age of 11 before making his First Division debut in 2018, where he has scored three goals across 15 matches in addition to making two Copa Libertadores appearances. He has represented both the U-17 and U-20 Argentina national teams on the international stage.
