Omar Vizquel has been hired by the Chicago White Sox to manage their Winston-Salem farm team in the Class A Carolina League.

A three-time All-Star and 11-time Gold Glove shortstop, the 50-year-old spent the past four seasons as Detroit’s first base, infield and base-running coach.

He appeared in 2,968 games over 24 major league seasons with Seattle (1989-93), Cleveland (1994-04), San Francisco (2005-08), Texas (2009), the White Sox (2010-11) and Toronto (2012).

Vizquel has the second-highest career fielding percentage among shortstops with at least 1,000 games at .985 and is the career leader in games at shortstop with 2,709.

Yankees, Boone agree

Aaron Boone’s hiring was finalized by the New York Yankees, who gave the ESPN broadcaster a three-year contract to succeed Joe Girardi as manager.

New York, which picked Boone over five other candidates last week, scheduled a news conference for Wednesday at Yankee Stadium. His deal contains a team option for 2021.

“I firmly believe that Aaron possesses the attributes needed to follow in the tradition of great Yankees managers,” owner Hal Steinbrenner said in a statement.

Boone was a big league third baseman from 1997-2009 and an All-Star in 2003, when New York acquired him from the Reds at the trade deadline. Boone played for the Cleveland Indians in the 2005 and 2006 seasons.

Ohtani’s choices

Japanese pitcher and outfielder Shohei Ohtani has cut the field of major league teams he is considering to five clubs on the West Coast plus the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Angels, San Francisco, San Diego and Seattle all remain in contention.

Ohtani is limited to a minor league contract because of restrictions imposed by the MLB collective bargaining agreement.
