The terms were not disclosed. The White Sox announced the deal on Friday, hours before their annual weekend fan convention began.

Ventura turned down an extension before the 2013 season, leading to speculation that he might not stick around much longer.

He led the White Sox to 85 wins and a second-place finish in the AL Central, but they dropped to 63-99 while finishing last in his second season. Ventura, 46, is148-176 in two seasons.

He spent 16 major-league seasons 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 RBIs.
