White Sox, Ventura agree to extension
The Chicago White Sox agreed to a multi-year contract extension with manager Robin Ventura.
The team did not disclose the terms of the deal.
Ventura, 46, was going into the final year of a three-year deal, so the extension eliminates his "lame-duck" status.
"There was never really any question in our minds as to who we wanted in the White Sox dugout now and into the future," general manager Rick Hahn said in a statement.
The White Sox went 63-99 under Ventura last year after going 85-77 in his first season managing the club.
