La Russa has reportedly undergone additional tests and medical procedures over the past week for a heart condition that has kept him out of the White Sox dugout since late August. The decision was made at the direction of the doctors who conducted the examination.

Acting manager Miguel Cairo will remain in office until the end of the campaign.

La Russa, 77, last made it on August 28 in a 3-2 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Since then, he has undergone a series of tests and examinations to resolve his heart problems.

Cairo has led the Sox to a 13–10 record since becoming interim manager. But the team enters Saturday’s game against the Detroit Tigers after losing four games in a row, including three to the Al-Central-leading Cleveland Guardians.

In this series, the White Sox returned eight times to the division race and 6.5 back in the hunt for the last place in the AL Wild Card, leaving their playoff chances in the decimal range.

The 2022 season is the second of a three-year deal La Russa signed to manage the White Sox in October 2020. His future after the end of this season has yet to be announced.
