The Chicago White Sox moved quickly in replacing manager Ozzie Guillen, who left to become the new Miami Marlins skipper.

The White Sox named former third baseman Robin Ventura who played in the majors for them, the Mets, the Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

White Sox general manager Ken Williams said that the 44-year-old Ventura was hired due to his familiarity with the team’s minor league system.

Ventura has never been a manager and rejoined the White Sox this past June as a special assistant to Buddy Bell, the team’s director of player development.

Ventura played 16 years in the majors, 1989-2004, and ended up with .267 average with 294 homers and 1,182 RBI’s. He was a 2-time All-Star, with six Gold Glove Awards and was the 1988 winner of the Golden Spikes and Dick Howser Awards.
