Carlos Manuel Febles (born May 24, 1976 in El Seibo, Dominican Republic) is a retired professional baseball player who played second base in the Major Leagues.

Career

After attending high school in the Dominican Republic at La Romana High, he was signed by the Kansas City Royals in 1993 as an amateur free agent.

A highly touted prospect in the late 1990s, Febles burst onto the scene in 1999, drawing hype as a potential Rookie of the Year candidate and one of the best glovemen in the game. Along with Carlos Beltran, he became part of the "Dos Carlos" team in Kansas City. After a hot start however, Febles' hitting cooled off, and he would continue to struggle at the plate for the next three seasons. It was not until 2003 that the Royals finally gave up on Febles, but not before he had logged the third most games at second base in Royals' history.

Febles spent two seasons (2009–2010) as batting coach of the Salem Red Sox, the Class A Carolina League affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, and in December 2010 was named the 2011 manager of the Lowell Spinners, the Red Sox' Short-Season A New York-Penn League farm club.[1] On January 20, 2012, Febles was promoted to manage the Greenville Drive, the Red Sox' affiliate in the Class A South Atlantic League[2] and he was rehired for 2013 on December 14, 2012.[3]

Through 2012, his won-lost record as a manager was 95–118 (.446).
