The White Sox announced the hiring of Omar Vizquel as manager at Class A Winston-Salem on Monday. Vizquel, a Hall of Fame candidate who spent part of his career with the Sox, replaces former Sox infielder Willie Harris. Vizquel, 50, spent the previous four seasons as the Tigers first base, infield and baserunning coach. He also managed Venezuela during the 2017 World Baseball Classic. “We are excited for Omar to rejoin the White Sox organization as our Winston-Salem manager,” said Sox Director of Player Development Chris Getz. “He has a wealth of experience and knowledge gained through an impressively lengthy baseball career. Omar is passionate about teaching the game, and we look forward to having him help with the development of the next generation of White Sox players.” Vizquel appeared in 2,968 games over 24 major-league seasons with the Mariners (1989-93), Indians (1994-2004), Giants (2005-08), Rangers (2009), White Sox (2010-11) and Blue Jays (2012).
