Hanwha announces a ‘surprising breakup’ with coach Subero

Professional baseball Hanhwa eventually decided to part ways with manager Carlos Subero. It was a surprise news that came as Hanwha, which had been sluggish, rebounded in May. Hanwha notified coach Subero of the hardship after the game on the 11th. Attention is focusing on how it will affect Hanwha in May, which was on the rise.

Hanwha announced on the same day that it had signed a contract with manager Choi Won-ho (pictured) for a total of 1.4 billion won for 3 years (down payment 200 million won, annual salary 300 million won, option 300 million won). The 2nd team command tower position, which became vacant when coach Choi Won-ho left, was taken over by Kim Seong-gap, the general coach of the remaining team. Darrell Kennedy’s operation and base coach and pitching coach Jose Rosado, who had come with Subero, also left the team with Subero.

Coach Won-ho Choi took over as manager of Hanwha Futures in November 2019, led the first team as an acting manager in June 2020, and returned to the futures command tower in 2021. Director Subero, who was appointed as the Hanwha command tower shouting for 3 years of rebuilding in 2021, ended up leaving without being able to fill his term.

Hanwha, led by coach Subero, ranked last for two consecutive years. This season, in the third year of rebuilding, Hanwha raised expectations by winning first place in the demonstration game. However, the results were below expectations. Hanwha was pushed to the bottom with 6 wins, 1 draw and 17 losses in April, with an odds ratio of 0.261. The two foreign players who started the season with coach Subero also performed sluggishly. Brian O’Grady finished April in the second team, and Birch Smith, who was brought in thinking of playing the role of an ace, dropped out due to injury without completing 3 innings.

Hanwha has been discussing recruiting a new coach since the end of last year, but they agreed to guarantee the tenure. However, as the results were still not coming out, after much consideration, it was decided to spend the rest of the season with the new manager. Hanwha notified coach Subero of his resignation after the game.

Hanwha won 4-0 against Samsung on the day. Hanwha, who recorded 5 wins and 2 losses this month alone, was chasing 8th place Kiwoom, who lost 0-1 to LG, by 1.5 games.
