White Sox hired Rick Renteria as manager.

Renteria will be officially introduced at a press conference Monday morning at U.S. Cellular Field. He's taking over for Robin Ventura, who resigned Sunday after a mostly disappointing five-year run with the White Sox. Renteria managed the crosstown Cubs for just one year in 2014, before getting pushed out -- somewhat unceremoniously -- for Joe Maddon. Renteria served as Ventura's bench coach on the south side of Chicago in 2016.

Amid speculation about Joe Maddon, Cubs manager Rick Renteria released a statement Monday night saying that he will continue to focus on his offseason preparation.

Here's the full statement: "I was hired nearly a year ago to be the Chicago Cubs manager. Notwithstanding all the speculation, I continue to focus my offseason preparation on achieving the goal we established from the start: bringing a championship to Chicago." It ultimately doesn't mean much, but it's interesting that the statement was released through his agent and the Cubs continue to stay silent on the situation. Mark Gonzalez of the Chicago Tribune hears from sources that there should be some resolution on the situation shortly after the World Series. Renteria led the Cubs to a 73-89 record during his first season as manager and still has two years remaining on his contract.
