James Fegan of The Athletic reports that White Sox GM Rick Hahn said on Tuesday that manager Rick Renteria signed a contract extension “some time ago,” meaning 2019 won’t be his last season under contract with the club. Details of the new deal, including the length and amount, are not yet known.
Renteria, 56, has managed the White Sox for two seasons in a rebuilding effort. The club has gone 129-195 (.398), finishing in fourth place both years.
Renteria coached for the Padres (2008-13), managed the Cubs for one year in 2014, and was a bench coach for the White Sox (2016) before being named manager.
