Tony La Russa will return as manager of the Chicago White Sox next season, according to a source.

Tim Anderson and Jose Abreu both publicly lobbed for La Russa to return after the White Sox were eliminated in the ALDS against the Houston Astros.

"I want him to be back," Anderson said. "At the end of the day, my decision doesn't really matter. I guess it all depends on what the front office thinks. ... I definitely want him in. I think he did a great job with the way he managed and just being open."
