Brewers manager relieved of duties
The Milwaukee Brewers announced Sunday that Ron Roenicke is being relieved of his duties as the team's Manager.
“This has been a difficult start to the season, something that we certainly didn't anticipate,” Brewers President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Doug Melvin said. “Over roughly the last 100 games, we have not performed at the level that we should. It's all about wins and losses, and after the first month of play this year we didn't see the progress and improvement we had hoped for. We appreciate all that Ron has done for our organization, and he has handled his duties with great professionalism and dedication. The reasons for our disappointing start are many, but we determined that it's in the best interests of the club to make this move.”
The Brewers plan on having a press conference Monday morning at 10:30.
