New manager Robin Ventura completed his first White Sox staff with Monday’s hirings of Jeff Manto as the team’s hitting coach, Joe McEwing as third-base coach and Mark Parent as bench coach.
Manto, 47, served as the White Sox Minor League hitting coordinator for the past four years and has great familiarity with some of the younger players who could play featured roles with the 2012 White Sox. Manto was also the Pirates’ hitting coach during the ’06 and ’07 seasons, with Freddy Sanchez leading the National League in hitting via his .344 average in 2006.
