MLB: White Sox manager Rick Renteria taken to hospital

Chicago White Sox manager Rick Renteria was taken to a hospital after complaining of lightheadedness Monday.

The 56-year-old Renteria was at the ballpark when the issue arose and was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis as a precaution. A team official says tests didn’t show any problems.

Bench coach Joe McEwing served as manager for Monday night’s one-game makeup in Minnesota.

Renteria is in his third season as the White Sox manager.
