White Sox extend manager Renteria's deal

CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) The rebuilding Chicago White Sox have extended manager Rick Renteria's contract.

General manager Rick Hahn declined to give specifics Wednesday other than the extension goes past 2019, when Renteria's original three-year deal was set to end.

Renteria is 129-195 in two seasons with the White Sox, including 62-100 this year. Prior to being hired, he managed the Chicago Cubs to a 73-89 record in 2014.

Hahn said Renteria, 56, is a great fit with the young White Sox.

''We felt at the time we hired him he was the right guy to begin the early processes of this rebuild and then stay with us through the time we think we're able to contend for championships,'' Hahn said at the general managers' meetings. ''On the front end, on the rebuild part, at the core, he's a teacher. ... As we eventually move into a phase where we're ready to win and have a roster that's capable of winning championships, we believe he's the right guy in terms of the culture he's created and the accountability he's created and the ability to steward a championship-caliber club.''

The White Sox haven't had a winning season since 2012. They last made the playoffs in 2008, losing to Tampa Bay in the AL Division Series.
