8:22pm: Fortunately, Renteria’s test came back negative, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times tweets. The White Sox expect him to return during their Tuesday-Thursday series in Cleveland.
4:22pm: White Sox manager Rick Renteria will be away from the team for at least one game. Per a club announcement, he is undergoing testing for COVID-19 after experiencing a cough and nasal congestion.
Indications are that Renteria is only experiencing mild symptoms at the moment. Hopefully that will remain the case, whatever the underlying cause. The team says Renteria is in isolation and staying away from the team “out of an abundance of caution.”
Bench coach Joe McEwing will handle managerial duties for the time being. If the testing comes back negative and Renteria feels up to it, perhaps he’ll be back without missing much action.
