Roenicke's 2015 option picked up

The Milwaukee Brewers have exercised the 2015 club option on Manager Ron Roenicke, General Manager Doug Melvin announced on Saturday.

"In picking up the option for 2015, it shows our confidence in having Ron lead this team on the field," said Melvin. "Last season was a difficult one, and Ron provided critical leadership with confidence and assurance that the Brewers can get back to the postseason."

Roenicke, 57, is 253-233 (.521) in three seasons with the Brewers, including a National League Central Championship in 2011, his first year as a Major League manager.

The Brewers won 96 times that season, establishing a single-season franchise record. The team has posted a winning record in two of Roenicke's three seasons as manager.

Roenicke was named the 18th manager in franchise history on Nov. 4, 2010, replacing Ken Macha. He signed a contract extension through the 2014 season with a club option for 2015 on May 8, 2012.
