White Sox GM Chris Getz reveals Pedro Grevol’s job status – NBC Sports Chicago

Chris Getz, the newly appointed general manager of the Chicago White Sox, has confirmed that Pedro Grevol will return to manage the team in 2024.

“Pedro will be back next year,” Getz told reporters Thursday in his introductory news conference.

“I think it’s important to provide stability for our players. There’s been a lot of changes in the last couple of years, and certainly here recently, and I think we need to get back to playing baseball, focusing on baseball, so when these players show up every day, they can just focus on the game.” And not on the leaders of the organization.”

In fact, Getz said his first order of business as the front office’s top executive will be to sit down with Grefull to discuss the state of the club and evaluate the coaching staff.

Greful had previously acknowledged that his job was on the hot seat earlier this month following the firings of general manager Rick Hahn and executive vice president Ken Williams. In his view, his status within the organization was questionable since the people who employed him were being relieved of their duties.

“Everyone is evaluated,” Griffhol said on August 22. “I look at myself one hundred percent. But I’ve done that from the beginning. I ask people around me and I’m not afraid to hear people say to me ‘You could have thought of this another way.’ I’m not afraid to be evaluated and for people to share different ways of doing it.”

Greful was hired before the start of this season and was previously the bench coach for the Kansas City Royals.
