Only adding to the list of winter to-dos, the Phillies will now have to replace their double-A manager in 2012.

Mark Parent will be hired as the bench coach for Robin Ventura's Chicago White Sox, a baseball source said Tuesday. Parent, a former Phillies catcher, managed at double-A Reading in 2011 and single-A Lakewood in 2010.

His minor-league teams made the playoffs in both seasons and Parent was thought of highly by many in the Phillies' front office.

Parent, 50, spent 13 years in the majors as a catcher. Parent and Ventura shared the same agent, John Boggs, during their playing careers.
