MINNEAPOLIS —White Sox manager Rick Renteria has been taken to a hospital after complaining of lightheadedness.

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

Bench coach Joe McEwing will serve as manager for Monday night’s one-game makeup in Minnesota before the teams travel to Chicago for a two-game series.

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

Sox broadcasters Jason Benetti and Steve Stone said during the broadcast that Renteria texted Sox officials and told them he is feeling fine and undergoing precautionary tests.
