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.

 

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.
