Wes Helms has been placed on “indefinite leave” as manager of the Chicago White Sox’s Triple-A affiliate in Charlotte, the team announced Friday.
The Sox provided no additional information, calling it a “personnel issue.”
2022 marked Helms’ fourth season in the Sox system and second as manager of the Knights. He was a coach at Double-A Birmingham in 2019.
Helms, 46, played for the Atlanta Braves (1998, 2000-02), Milwaukee Brewers (2003-05), Florida (now Miami) Marlins (2006, 2008-11) and Philadelphia Phillies (2007) , batting .256 with 75 home runs and 374 RBI in 1,212 career major league games.
