Baloy moved to Mexico in 2005 to play for Monterrey in the Primera División (First Division). On July 30, 2005, he made his professional debut in the 1-2 C.F. Pachuca game. However, Baloy had to become used to the Mexican crowd because he was taking the place of Argentine defender Pablo Rochen, who was a fan favorite. After a few strong performances, Baloy won over the audience.
Pipe got off to a strong start in 2005 with Rayados, who finished second in the 2005 Apertura. After that season, Monterrey was no longer as competitive as they had been, but Baloy was able to stand out on the squad and was frequently referred to as one of Mexico’s top defenders.
