(MILWAUKEE) -- The Milwaukee Brewers picked up the 2015 club option on manager Ron Roenicke, the team announced on Saturday. "In picking up the option for 2015, it shows our confidence in having Ron lead this team on the field," said Brewers general manager 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." In three seasons at the helm with the Brewers, the 57-year-old Roenicke has compiled a record of 253-222 for a .521 winning percentage. He led Milwaukee to a franchise record 96 wins and the National League Central division title in 2011.
Roenicke was hired as the Brewers 18th manager in franchise history on Nov. 4, 2010, replacing Ken Macha.
