Bench coach Miguel will continue to serve as caretaker manager for the Cairo White Sox (78-80), who conclude their season on Wednesday.

Hall of Fame manager, La Russa came out of retirement before last season and took the White Sox to the playoffs.

La Russa spent eight years managing the White Sox from 1979–86 before joining the Oakland Athletics in the same position and managing them to three American League pennants and the 1989 World Series title over a 10-year period.

He then managed the St. Louis Cardinals for 16 years, during which he won three National League pennants and won the 2006 and 2011 World Series.

La Russa retired after winning the latter before returning to Chicago ahead of the 2021 campaign. He has won 2,899 games and four Manager of the Year awards.
