Club career[edit]

Pajoy began his career with Cortulua debuting with the first team during the 2004 season. In 2005 he joined Atlético Huila and remained at the club for one year. The following season he joined Boyacá Chicó and had his finest season scoring 12 goals in 35 matches.

As a result of his play with Boyacá Chicó, Pajoy was signed by the 2006 Colombian 1st division Champion Cúcuta Deportivo and helped Cúcuta to the semi finals of the Copa Libertadores 2007. He scored his clubs 2nd goal in the away match against Nacional de Montevideo which ended in a 2-2 draw and sealed Cúcuta's semi final spot. After three years with Cúcuta he joined Deportivo Cali during January 2010. However, he was released from the club at the end of may due to poor play. He joined Millonarios for the remainder of the 2010 season but only scored 1 goal in 15 matches.

In early 2011 he was sent on loan to newly promoted Itagüí Ditaires. While with Itagüí he recovered the form that made him a respected scorer in Colombia. On October 1, 2011 Pajoy scored Itagüí's three goals in a 3-1 victory over Real Cartagena.[1] In his one year at the club Pajoy helped lead the club to a 9th place overall finish and a second place finish in Torneo Finalización, in which he was one of the top scorers with 10 goals in 17 matches.

Pajoy signed with Philadelphia Union of Major League Soccer on February 8, 2012.[2] On August 16, 2012, Pajoy was traded with an international roster spot to D.C. United in exchange for Danny Cruz.[3] He scored his first goal for United in a 4-2 win against Chicago one week later. On September 20, Pajoy's half-volley proved the difference in a 1-0 win at his old club.
