White Sox To Hire Miguel Cairo As Bench Coach


The White Sox will hire Miguel Cairo as their new bench coach, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports on Twitter. He had been working in the Yankees organization as minor league infield coordinator.

This’ll represent a new challenge for Cairo, who spent 17 years in the majors during his playing days. He briefly served as interim bench coach with the Reds back in 2013, but has otherwise remained out of a big league uniform since hanging up his spikes.

Cairo will serve as the top lieutenant to newly hired manager Tony La Russa, who’ll face intense scrutiny as he makes his own return to the MLB dugout. No doubt the 46-year-old Cairo will be tasked with helping to connect the 76-year-old La Russa to a generally youthful Chicago roster.

Clippers Note: Cario is the third member. of the Yankees Minor League staff to leave the team for new organization. On October 27, 2020, the Yankees lost 2 Minor League Coaches at AAA Scranton; long-time Minor League Pitching Coach Tommy Phelps and Phil Plantier to the Marlins Organization.

Good luck, Miggy.

I'd forgotten he played against the Yanks in the 2009 World Series, though it's not hard to see why -- he never played a single inning.
