(670 The Score) White Sox manager Tony La Russa won’t return to the dugout this season, the team announced Saturday afternoon.
Doctors directed the 77-year-old La Russa that he shouldn’t return to managing this season after he underwent additional testing and medical procedures over the past week, the White Sox said. La Russa has been on medical leave since Aug. 30 due to a heart issue.
Bench coach Miguel Cairo will continue to serve as the White Sox’s acting manager. The White Sox (76-75) are 13-10 with Cairo at the helm and are currently riding a four-game losing streak that has extinguished their playoff hopes in a disappointing season.
The White Sox haven’t revealed any details about La Russa’s status as manager beyond the end of this season.
