Robin Ventura has a job waiting for him next season if he wants it.
According to USA TODAY's Bob Nightengale, the White Sox have privately offered Ventura the managerial position in 2017.
Ventura is in his final year of a five-year contract, which he signed in 2012.
The White Sox (76-81) have to win all five of their remaining games to avoid their fourth straight losing season under Ventura.
His only winning season came in his first year on the job, going 85-77, but the White Sox failed to reach the postseason.
Ventura is 373-432 as White Sox manager.
