30/11/2020
The Eagles finished last in their 2020 campaign. Subero served as the MLB Milwaukee Brewers first base coach from 2015 to 2019.

Carlos SUBERO, who managed Venezuela at the WBSC Premier12 2019, signed a three-year contract for the Hanwha Eagles of the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO), thus becoming the first foreign manager in the 35-year history of the club.

SUBERO was born in 1972. He played professionally as an infielder from 1990 to 1997 in Minor League Baseball (MiLB) with the Kansas City Royals, Pittsburgh Pirates and Texas Rangers.

The 48-year-old started his coaching career in 1999 with the Texas Rangers organization. He became a manager at the Rookie League level two years later. SUBERO moved to the Milwaukee Brewers in 2014 to manage their Double-A team. He was promoted to first base and infield coach in December 2015. His contract with the Brewers expired after the 2019 season.

The new Hanwha Eagles manager was on the staff of the World Team during the Major League Baseball (MLB) All-Star Futures Game 2008 and 2010. He also managed four different teams in the Professional Baseball League of Venezuela and in the Mexican Pacific League.

SUBERO led Venezuela in Group B, hosted by Taichung, Taiwan, of the WBSC Premier12 2019. Venezuela lost against Japan, 8-4, and the hosts Chinese Taipei, 3-0. They defeated Puerto Rico, 7-1, in the final game of group play. Venezuela didn't qualify for the Super Round and tied for seventh place with Canada and the Dominican Republic.

The Hanwha Eagles finished last in their 2020 KBO campaign with just 46 wins over 144 regular-season games.
