The Chicago White Sox announced they have agreed to part ways with manager Rick Renteria.
Renteria served his fourth season as the White Sox' manager and finished with a 236–309 record. This season marked their first trip to the postseason since 2008. The White Sox were eliminated in a three-game Wild Card series against the Oakland Athletics.
Renteria replaced Robin Ventura as the White Sox manager in October 2016. He spent one season as the team's bench coach but also managed the Chicago Cubs in 2014 to a 73–89 record.
Chicago also announced that it mutually agreed to part ways with pitching coach Don Cooper. Cooper had served as the team's longtime pitching coach since 2002, and he was their last coach remaining coach from the 2005 World Series champions staff.
"The front office and White Sox fans owe a debt of gratitude to Don for everything he did over the years," General manager Rick Hahn said.
The White Sox went 35–25 in the shortened 2020 regular season, finishing second in the AL Central.
