Jared Lawrence Sandberg (born March 2, 1978) is a former Major League Baseball third baseman for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. He is currently the manager of the Triple-A level Durham Bulls in the Rays organization.

Career

In 2002, Sandberg showed potential to hit for power, hitting 18 home runs in 102 games with the Devil Rays. However, his difficulties hitting for average prevented him from spending a full season in the major leagues.

In 2005, Sandberg played with the Portland Sea Dogs, Double-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. Sandberg started the 2006 season with the Houston Astros Double-A affiliate Corpus Christi Hooks. He played mainly third base, but struggled to hit for average. In his final game for the Hooks, he broke out of an 0-for-26 slump with a home run. The following day, he was released to make room for a player to come off the disabled list. Sandberg signed with the Cleveland Indians and was assiged to the Double-A Akron Aeros. In 2007, Sandberg signed with the Kansas City Royals, and was assigned to play for the Double-A Wichita Wranglers.

He retired after the 2007 season and took a job as the hitting coach for the Single-A Hudson Valley Renegades in the Tampa Bay Rays organization. After the 2008 season, he became the manager of the Rookie level Princeton Rays.[1] In the 2013 season, he became the manager of the Single-A Bowling Green Hot Rods in the Tampa Rays organization. He was named the manager of the High-A Charlotte Stone Crabs for the 2014 season. Following the departure of Charlie Montoyo, Sandberg was named manager of the Triple-A Durham Bulls in January 2015.[2] On July 29, 2016, Sandberg was named the manager of the Arizona Fall League's Peoria Javelinas for the 2016 season.[3]

Personal life

Sandberg is the nephew of former Chicago Cubs second baseman Ryne Sandberg.[4]
