Brewers will move into 2017 with coaching staff intact

The Milwaukee Brewers will make the transition into 2017 leaving all of their coaching staff intact, General Manager David Stearns said in the Brewers end-of-the-year press conference.

Stearns said the progress he saw with the team leaves him comfortable with manager Craig Counsell and his staff leading the Brewers. 

"We have had some players emerge this year and that's been a promising sign for the organization," Stearns said.

However, after leading the Major Leagues in errors, Counsell says that must change in 2017. 

"I do think we'll be better defensively next year looking at who's gonna be out in the field most likely but there's certainly more room for improvement there," Counsell said.

Stearns also addressed the future of outfielder Ryan Braun, who hit .305 with 30 home runs and 91 RBI in 2016--but was a part of a trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers that fell through in August. 

"When we have good players and they have years like Ryan has had I imagine we would get some calls but we'll see what happens in the course of the offseason," Stearns said.
