Robin Ventura was ejected from Saturday's game against the Yankees in the second inning for arguing a call.

Saturday's Cactus League tilt between the White Sox and Indians was cancelled due to rain.

The White Sox have signed manager Robin Ventura to a multi-year contract extension.

The details of the deal are not known, but Ventura now won't have to enter the season in the final year of his contract.

Upon conclusion of the World Series, the White Sox are expected to name Todd Steverson as their new hitting coach.

The 42-year-old Steverson has spent the last two seasons as the minor league hitting coordinator for the Athletics. Previous hitting coach Jeff Manto was relieved of his duties, after the White Sox hit .249/.302/.378 as a team in 2013, and tallied a league-worst 598 runs.

Robin Ventura will return to manage the White Sox for the 2014 season.

White Sox general manager Rick Hahn confirmed as much on Friday.

Robin Ventura was ejected from Sunday's game against the Red Sox for arguing balls and strikes with home plate umpire Dana De Muth.

In a frustrating afternoon, Ventura felt that his pitchers were getting squeezed, with Andre Rienzo and Charlie Leesman combining to walk five batters in the first four innings. He certainly got his money's worth telling De Muth how he felt about the situation at least.

Chuck Garfien of reports that White Sox manager Robin Ventura turned down a one-year contract extension over the winter.

Ventura was an American League Manager of the Year finalist in 2012 in his first season as Chicago's skipper. His current deal runs through the end of the 2014 season, though, and apparently he's not anxious to re-up for more years at this time.
