Steverson replaces Jeff Manto, who was fired after two seasons. He'll be working with a team that batted .249 and had its home run total drop from third in the majors at 211 a year ago to 19th this season at 148. The White Sox have since agreed to a contract with Cuban slugger Jose Abreu, hoping he can add pop to the order.
Steverson has major league experience as a first base coach with the Athletics and has coached and managed in their system since joining the organization in 2004.
