Guillen leaving White Sox, may be headed to Marlins

MIAMI — According to published reports out of Chicago, White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen is out the door and headed to South Florida to manage the Marlins when they open their new ballpark in April.

The White Sox confirmed late Monday that they and Guillen have parted ways.

"The White Sox have agreed to Ozzie Guillen's request to be released from his contract, allowing the manager to pursue other opportunities," the White Sox said in a statement.

"I personally appreciate everything Ozzie has done for this organization, our fans and the city of Chicago," White Sox team chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said. "We shared the greatest moments together and wish him nothing but future success in baseball and in life." had reported that Guillen was traded to the Marlins for two minor-leaguers. The Marlins declined comment but did not deny the reports.

Guillen would replace Jack McKeon, who announced that he will retire after the season at age 80, as expected.

McKeon is the second-oldest manager in history after Connie Mack, who managed the Philadelphia Athletics until age 87.
