CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox have named veteran minor-league manager Anthony "Razor" Shines as the club's new third base coach and have shifted Joey Cora's responsibilities from third base coach to bench coach.

Shines, 49, joins the coaching staff following a successful minor-league managerial career in which he went 508-470 (.519) in seven seasons, including the last six in the White Sox system. He guided Class AAA Charlotte to a 79-62 record in 2006, including a 31-9 start and a spot in the International League playoffs.

Shines, who currently is managing La Guaira in the Venezuelan Winter League, was named Southern League Manager of the Year in 2005 after leading Class AA Birmingham to an 82-57 record. He also served as a coach at the 2005 and 2006 All-Star Futures Games. In 2003, Shines led Class A Winston-Salem to the Carolina League title.

Shines played professionally for 16 seasons from 1978-93, appearing in 68 games with the Montreal Expos between 1983-87. The Durham, N.C., native batted .266 (1,245-4,673) with 134 home runs and 704 RBI in 1,480 minor-league games.

Cora, who has spent the past three seasons as the White Sox third base coach, takes over for Tim Raines on the bench. The 41-year-old Cora organizes the White Sox spring training camp and has managed three seasons (2001-03) on the minor-league level.
