Rick Renteria has another shot at leading a Chicago baseball.
Two years after one-season stint with the Cubs ended, Renteria on Monday morning was officially named the 40th manager in White Sox franchise history. He replaces Robin Ventura, who announced Sunday he wouldn’t return after five seasons as manager. Ventura’s contract had expired.
The 54-year-old Renteria becomes the only current Latino manager in the big leagues. He spent the past season as the White Sox’s bench coach.
