Carlos Febles hit .400 for the big league club when he got his September call-up as a Kansas City Royals rookie prospect in 1998. He became the Royals' starting second baseman in 1999, hitting .256 in 123 games, with 22 doubles, 9 triples and 10 homers. He scored 71 runs and stole 20 bases. He played for the Royals until 2003, but never matched any of his rookie numbers - except for a .257 batting average in 2000.

Following his playing career, he became a coach in the Boston Red Sox minor league system, and then a manager from 2011 to 2017. In 2018, he was promoted to third base coach with the big league team, arriving in time for their winning the 2018 World Series. He stayed in the job until the end of the 2023 season, after which he was let go. He then joined the Toronto Blue Jays as their third base coach in 2024.

In addition to coaching in the United States, Febles spent many winters coaching the Toros del Este in the Dominican League. He was the third base coach from 2008/2009 to 2011/2012. The following year Febles started as the Bulls' assistant manager before taking over as interim manager on December 15, 2012. He resumed his work at third base in 2013/2014 season. Febles received a promotion to bench coach in 2014/2015, but was named manager on December 17th.
