White Sox Bring back All-Star Robin Ventura as Farm System Advisor

It was announced in the past couple hours that the Chicago White Sox hired former All-Star and Gold Glove-winning third baseman Robin Ventura as special advisor to Director of Player Development Buddy Bell. Ventura will scout the Sox minor-leagues throughout the season, evaluating performances and reporting directly to Bell.

“Robin’s experience and expertise will be invaluable to our entire minor-league system,” said Bell.

“He will serve as a terrific complement to our instructors and minor-league coaching staffs, and I look forward to hearing his thoughts and getting his input as we make player development decisions. As White Sox fans know, Robin was the consummate professional, and I can’t imagine a better role model and advisor for young developing players in our farm system.”
