The White Sox will name Mark Parent and Joe McEwing to the coaching staff of new manager Robin Ventura, a source indicated Monday.
Parent will be Ventura’s bench coach and right-hand man, said the major league source with knowledge of the White Sox’s thinking, while McEwing will be the third-base coach.
Still to be decided is the hitting coach to replace Greg Walker. The source indicated the White Sox are still deciding between minor league hitting coordinator Jeff Manto and Triple-A Charlotte hitting coach Tim Laker, with Manto believed to be the lead candidate. …
Parent was the manager of AA-Reading (Phillies). McEwing was the manager of AAA-Charlotte.
Harold was offered the hitting coach job but he doesn’t want to talk more than he does now.
I’m kidding about Harold. I’m kidding!
