The former Estudiantes man was fined and suspended for Atlanta's upcoming match against Real Salt Lake for the infraction, but has seen both lifted as a result of the panel's decision on Wednesday.
Pirez, 25, was signed from the Buenos Aires club for $2 million in January.
He has started in all six of Atlanta's matches this season, contributing one assist thus far.
