Rick Renteria out as White Sox manager

After guiding the White Sox to a 35-25 record and a postseason appearances in his fourth season as manager, Rick Renteria and the team “agreed to part ways” on Monday, the team announced.

The move comes as somewhat of a surprise but demonstrates the Sox’ resolve to take the next step in the fifth year of their rebuild after bowing out of the postseason with a Wild Card series loss to the Athletics.

Renteria had one year remaining on his contract, as does most of his coaching staff. The status of the coaching staff will be determined moving forward and in consultation with the team’s next manager, according to the team’s release.

While in full rebuild mode, the Sox were 67-95, 62-100 and 72-89 in Renteria’s first three seasons. The Sox hired Renteria as a bench coach one year after the Cubs fired him as their manager in 2014, then named him to succeed Robin Ventura before the 2017 season. Renteria, replaced by Joe Maddon, spent one year on the job with the Cubs.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria not with team, pending tests

Chicago White Sox manager Rick Renteria woke up Monday with “a slight cough and nasal congestion” and will be kept away from the team pending the results of medical tests.

Bench coach Joe McEwing will manage the White Sox until the team learns more about Renteria’s condition. Monday’s opener of a three-game set at Cleveland was postponed by rain and will be made up Tuesday as part of a traditional doubleheader.

General manager Rick Hahn released a statement saying the 58-year-old Renteria was taken to a Cleveland hospital for evaluation and tests.

“Out of an abundance of caution, Ricky will remain at the team hotel and not manage until we receive confirmation of today’s test result,” Hahn said.
