29) Jayce Tingler

Jayce Tingler will be the new bench coach for the Minnesota Twins in 2022.

Tingler, 41, was the manager of the San Diego Padres for the last two seasons before he was fired after an awful second half of the season, which dropped the Padres out of the best record in baseball, first place in NL West, the playoff picture, and even being above .500. They were 34-19 to start the season but from May 30 on, the Padres were 45-64 and they were 18-36 from August 1 through the end of the season.

Other than managing the Padres, he has had very little experience in the dugout as a coach or manager at the professional level as most of his experience comes from the front office in player development.

He was in the Rangers organization from the end of his minor league playing career up until he joined the Padres (2006-2019). He was their player development field coordinator (2019), assistant GM (2017-2018), interim bench coach for a few games at the end of the 2018 season, MLB field coordinator (2015-2016), minor league field coordinator (2012-2014), coordinator of instruction at their Arizona and Dominican Republic camps (2011), manager with their Rookie-level team in Arizona (2010), and manager in the Dominican Summer League (2008-2009).

In 2007 (his first season after retiring as a player), he helped get their Dominican team established.
