    The 2012 Chicago White Sox season was the club's 113th season in Chicago and 112th in the American League. On October 6, 2011, Robin Ventura was designated to be the new manager.

    Offseason

    White Sox GM Kenny Williams called the 2012 season a "rebuilding" year. In doing so, the Sox made some big moves in the offseason by trading away or letting big name free agents leave. Mark Buehrle became a free agent and decided to follow his former manager, Ozzie Guillén, and sign with the Miami Marlins. The White Sox closer during the 2011 season, Sergio Santos, was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays. Left fielder Juan Pierre became a free agent and signed with the Philadelphia Phillies. Power hitting right fielder Carlos Quentin, was traded to the San Diego Padres. The White Sox did however sign or acquire young talent. Players like José Quintana, Néstor Molina, Simón Castro, Pedro Hernández, Jhan Mariñez, Héctor Giménez, Damaso Espino, Erik Morrison and Osvaldo Martínez. The White Sox signed former Cub and Indian, Kosuke Fukudome to be the team's fourth outfielder.
