Biographical Information[edit]

Catcher Trent Jewett played four seasons (1987-1990) in the Pittsburgh Pirates farm system and hit .172/~.254/.210 over 319 AB in 113 games.

In 1992, he began moving his way up the Pirates' chain as a minor league manager. He managed the Welland Pirates (1992), Augusta Pirates (1993), Salem Buccaneers (1994), Carolina Mudcats (League champs in 1995), Calgary Cannons (1996-1997), Nashville Sounds (1998-mid-2000, 2003-2004), and Indianapolis Indians (2005-2007). Jewett became the Pirates third base coach from mid-2000 to 2002.

He returned to the minors as manager of Nashville in 2003 and 2004, and from 2005 to 2008, he was the skipper of the Indianapolis Indians. On June 27, 2011, he was named interim bench coach of the Washington Nationals, succeeding John McLaren who moved to scouting duties after his three-game stint as interim manager of the Nationals. Johnson then hired veteran Pat Corrales to take over the job permanently on July 1st. Jewett was the Nats' third base coach in 2012 and 2013. In 2014, he moved to the Seattle Mariners to serve as bench coach under newly appointed manager Lloyd McClendon; the two had worked together for a number of years in the Pirates' organization. He stayed until the end of the 2015 season, when both he and McClendon were let go.
