His debut season with Sacramento, his first in the Giants' organization, will mark Brundage's 12th consecutive season as a manager at the Triple-A level and 20th year as a skipper in the minor leagues. Previously, he spent four seasons (2013–16) at the helm of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs in the Philadelphia Phillies' organization. He led the 2016 IronPigs to an 85–58 record, the second-best mark in Triple-A.
Brundage attended McKay High School in Salem, Oregon, and Oregon State University. He was selected by the Phillies in the fourth round of the 1986 June draft but never reached the Major League level. Primarily an outfielder—although he appeared in 39 games as a pitcher—his playing career lasted for eight seasons in the Philadelphia and Seattle Mariners' organizations. He batted .275 with 683 hits and compiled a 1–5 won/lost mark on the mound with an earned run average of 3.83. Brundage threw and batted left-handed, stood 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m) tall and weighed 190 lb (86 kg).
His managerial career began in the Seattle organization in 1995 in the California League, but he has spent much of his career at higher levels of the minors, including six years at Double-A with Seattle affiliates in the Southern and Texas leagues, and 11 seasons at Triple-A with the Tacoma Rainiers (2006), Richmond/Gwinnett Braves (2007–12), and the IronPigs. His 2007 Richmond team won the International League championship. He also was Tacoma's batting coach from 1998–2000.
His 19-season win–loss record as a manager through 2016 was 1,371–1,315 (.510).
