The Chicago White Sox didn’t make the postseason last year, but they apparently experienced the type of growth and progress that they wanted to see. Proof of this is the fact that the club has extended the contract of manager Robin Ventura.
Ventura’s contract extension was announced by the White Sox via their official Twitter account.

Had the Sox not extended Ventura, he would have been managing 2014 without a safety net of another season on his deal. The exact details of the contract extension are not known, but the announcement implied that the extension could be for more than a few years.
The deal is likely for at least one more year and will probably be announced as a two-year extension. Ventura has helped the White Sox grow since he came to town and despite fans calling for his job, he has helped keep the team together as best he can.
