MISE À DAY
Charlie Montoyo will now serve as a bench coach under manager Pedro Grifol for the Chicago White Sox.
That's what the Illinois organization confirmed Tuesday.
Montoyo was fired by the Toronto Blue Jays on July 13th. The Ontario team had a 46-42 record at the time. Under relief John Schneider, she finished the season with a 92-70 record before being eliminated in two games by the Seattle Mariners.
The 57-year-old Puerto Rican, who played for the Montreal Expos in his only four major league games in 1993, was also a bench coach for the Tampa Bay Rays from 2015 to 2018.
Grifol, for his part, was hired at the beginning of November. It will be his first experience as a manager in the major leagues. He will take the helm of a club that finished first in the American League Central Division by virtue of a 93-69 record, but was quickly ousted by the Houston Astros in the divisional series. /p>
