Biographical Information[edit]

Bijan Rademacher was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 13th round of the 2012 Amateur Draft from Orange Coast College and he played in their minor league system from 2012-2018. Rademacher primarily played in the outfield, though there were some games at first base as well. He played at the AAA level in his last three seasons but never received a call to the major leagues. In Rademacher's seven minor league seasons he hit .280/.361/.402 while appearing in over 700 games. After leaving the Cubs he played a final season with the 2019 New Britain Bees in the independent Atlantic League.

Following his playing career Rademacher joined the Arizona Diamondbacks player development system. He started 2021 as the team's minor league hitting coordinator but a shake-up at the major league level had repercussions for him as well. On June 10th the Diamondbacks fired co-hitting coach Darnell Coles and replaced him with Reno Aces hitting coach Rick Short. Rademacher then moved to Reno as the interim hitting coach. The next year proved to be more settled as Rademacher spent the entire season as the ACL Diamondbacks Red hitting coach.

Rademacher was the hitting coach for the Omaha Storm Chasers in the Kansas City Royals organization in 2023-2024. After the 2023 season he coached the Surprise Saguaros in the Arizona Fall League.
