Biographical Information[edit]

The nephew of Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg, Jared Sandberg played three years in the majors (2001-2003). His minor league career stretched from 1996 to 2007.

He hit 18 HRs for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2002, and hit 139 minor league home runs. Along with low batting averages, he was prone to strikeouts: in 2002, he was fifth in the American League with 139 K's in only 102 games.

In 2005 he was a member of the Portland Sea Dogs, the class AA affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. In 2006 he played in independent ball as well as in the minor league organizations of the Houston Astros and Cleveland Indians.

In early 2007 he was in minor league camp with the Texas Rangers then played 18 games with the AA Wichita Wranglers but was released after hitting only .103. Given he had not hit above .232 since 2002, it was clear that his chance of being a major league regular had long passed by then.

Sandberg was a coach for the Hudson Valley Renegades in 2008 then he became manager of the Princeton Rays in the Appalachian League in 2009. After managing every year in the minors until 2018, in 2019 he moved up to the major league coaching ranks with the Seattle Mariners. He was named the team's bench coach in 2020.
