Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Chicago White Sox and manager Robin Ventura have agreed to terms on a multi-year contract extension.

Terms of the contract were not revealed by the club.

Ventura was named the 39th manager in franchise history on Oct. 6, 2011.

The 46-year-old Ventura was a finalist for American League Manager of the Year in 2012 after Chicago went 85-77 and finished three games behind the Detroit Tigers for first place in the AL Central.

The White Sox finished last in the division last season with a 63-99 record.

"I'm excited about the direction of the club and the moves we have made this offseason, but there is still a lot of work to be done so I think we're all ready to get to spring training and get started," Ventura said.

Ventura spent 16 major league seasons as a player with the White Sox (1989-98), New York Mets (1999-2001), New York Yankees (2002-03) and Los Angeles Dodgers (2003-2004), hitting .267 with 294 home runs and 1,182 RBI in 2,079 games.
