Brewers exercise 2015 option for manager Ron Roenicke
The Brewers have exercised the 2015 option in manager Ron Roenicke's contract, and added another option for 2016.
The Brewers have exercised their 2015 club option for manager Ron Roenicke, the team announced. In addition to guaranteeing the 2015 season, the club also added an option for 2016 to his contract.
"In picking up the option for 2015, it shows our confidence in having Ron lead this team on the field," said GM Doug Melvin in a statement. "Last season was a difficult one, and Ron provided critical leadership with confidence and assurance that the Brewers can get back to the postseason."
Roenicke, 57, took over as manager of the Brewers prior to the 2011 season. They won a franchise record 96 games that year, earning him a second place finish in the Manager of the Year voting. Milwaukee has gone 253-233 (.521) in three years under Roenicke.
