The Milwaukee Brewers announced the hiring of two coaches today, rounding out their coaching staff for the upcoming season.
General Manager David Stearns announced the hiring of Carlos Subero as first base/infield coach and Jason Lane as coach.
The 43-year-old Subero joins the Major League coaching staff after spending the last two seasons as manager at the Double-A level in the Brewers organization. He guided the Biloxi Shuckers to a Southern League Championship Series appearance in 2015, a season after leading the Huntsville Stars to a postseason berth. The Shuckers were named 2015 Minor League Team of the Year by Baseball America.
Lane, who turns 39 on December 22, completed 17-year professional playing career in 2015, including seven seasons in the Major Leagues with Houston and San Diego. The former outfielder was converted into a pitcher in 2012 and made his only Major League pitching appearances with the Padres in 2014.
Lane was a career .241 hitter in the Major leagues with 61 HR and 189 RBI in 500 games. His best season came in 2005 as he hit .267 with 26 HR and 78 RBI in 145 games for the National League champion Astros.
