Brewers fire Ron Roenicke
The Brewers fired manager Ron Roenicke tonight, the team announced Sunday. Milwaukee released the following statement:
“This has been a difficult start to the season — something that we certainly didn’t anticipate. 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,” Melvin said in a statement posted to Twitter by the Milwaukee Brewers late Sunday.
The Brewers will announce Roenicke’s replacement at a press conference Monday, May 4th at 10:30 a.m.
In four-plus seasons under Roenicke, the Brewers finished with a 342-331 regular season mark, including 7-18 this year.
