Matos, who spent seven seasons in the Major Leagues with the Orioles and Nationals, most recently was a hitting coach in the Puerto Rican Winter League.
"It was a surprise, because this was going to be my first year coaching [in the U.S.]," Matos said in a news release. "But when they asked if I wanted to manage, how could I say no? It's a challenge, and I like that."
