Rick Hahn expects Robin Ventura to return next season as manager of the Chicago White Sox.
Hahn said bench coach Mark Parent's contract will not be renewed and that assistant hitting coach Harold Baines has requested to move into an ambassador role. Ventura and the rest of the staff are expected back.
''Obviously, everyone with this organization is extremely disappointed with the way the season has played out,'' Hahn said. ''We have already begun the work of trying to address several of the areas in which all of us need to improve in order to get us to the level that we want to get to for the future.''
During Ventura's 2012 debut, Chicago went 85-77 and led the AL Central most of the season before faltering late and finishing behind Detroit.
