Ron Roenicke Fired As Brewers Manager_-4560088588825114822
Manager Ron Roenicke is out after a collapse that saw the Brewers fall from the top of the NL Central to miss the playoffs in 2015, and then a 7-18 start to 2016 season.

The move came just hours after the Crew picked up their first series win of the season against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. At the same time general manager Doug Melvin says it was the right time to make the change.

“This has been a difficult start to the season, something that we certainly didn’t anticipate,” said Melvin in a press release.

“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 interest of the club to make this move.”

In four years as Brewers manager, Roenicke led Milwaukee to a 342-331 regular season record and the playoffs in 2011.

The Brewers will announce Roenicke’s successor at a press conference in Milwaukee at 10:30 a.m. Monday.
