July 27th, 2020

Chicago White Sox General Manager Rick Hahn issued the following statement on Monday before the team’s game in Cleveland:

“Manager Ricky Renteria awoke this morning with a slight cough and nasal congestion. After consulting with our team doctors, Ricky underwent precautionary testing today at a Cleveland hospital. Out of an abundance of caution, Ricky will remain at the team hotel and not manage until we receive confirmation of today’s test result. Bench Coach Joe McEwing will manage the White Sox during Ricky’s absence.”

Monday's game was subsequently postponed due to inclement weather and will be made up Tuesday as part of a doubleheader beginning at 2:30 p.m. CT.
