Found June 19, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio said Wednesday that manager Ron Roenicke is not in danger of losing his job despite the team's disappointing season. Speaking at the Major League Baseball Diversity Business Summit, Attanasio told FOX Sports that Roenicke will remain in his position through the end of the season. "We've had a lot of success under Ron," Attanasio said. "Ron's best attribute is that he's the same person when we won 96 games (in 2011) as, unfortunately, (during) a season where we're in last place." Roenicke, now in his third year as the Milwaukee manager, is 207-187 with the team. Attanasio said Roenicke's steady demeanor was a key reason the Brewers made a late-season playoff push last year. Attanasio said he hasn't had any discussions with general manager Doug Melvin about the possibility 2011 NL MVP Ryan Braun could be suspended by Major League Baseball because of the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drugs investigation. "We're more focused right now on getting his thumb better," Attanasio said of Braun, who is currently on the disabled list. "Doug Melvin and I have not had a single conversation about baseball's investigation and how it affects Ryan. We don't have any anxiety about it." Asked how Braun is handling the uncertainty surrounding his status, Attanasio said, "I think he's doing fine. He's worried about his thumb."

Brewers' Ryan Braun sees hand specialist

Ryan Braun has been battling an injury to his thumb for weeks now.  Occasional rest did not work, so the Milwaukee Brewers placed him on the DL.  There has been little improvement even while on the DL, so Braun is looking for answers.  Those answers may come from a hand specialist Braun saw recently. Adam McCalvy of MLB.com says Braun visited Dr. Don Sheridan in Phoenix yesterday...

Brewers Minor Leagues are Apparently Not Well Regarded

(Image: Allison Rhoades/MiLB.com) Even as someone who follows the Brewers pretty closely, I don’t know much about the state of the minor leagues.  Other than spring training and September call ups, I only know the names of a few players in Milwaukee’s farm system (I hear this Hunter Morris guy has a lot of upside). I am aware that the Brewers supposedly depleted their...

Brewers Wednesday: Norichika Aoki on paternity list

The Milwaukee Brewers have placed right fielder Norichika Aoki on the paternity list, as his wife is expected to give birth to their second child on Thursday. To fill Aoki's spot on the roster, the Brewers have recalled outfielder Josh Prince from Triple-A Nashville. According to MLB rules, Aoki can stay on the paternity list up to three days. Aoki has been on high alert over...

Brewers' Rickie Weeks slowly but surely showing life

The Milwaukee Brewers were on their way to another disheartening loss when they finally got a big hit. Completely shut down by Astros starter Erik Bedard through seven innings, Rickie Weeks greeted reliever Hector Ambriz with a two-run home run to left, giving the Brewers the lead at 2-1. Aramis Ramirez homered off Ambriz for an insurance run in the ninth, while Francisco Rodriguez...

Milwaukee Brewers Recall Josh Prince

The Milwaukee Brewers have recalled outfielder Josh Prince from their Triple-A Nashville farm club in an act to provide some outfield depth while Norichika Aoki serves a few days on the paternity list so he can be there for the birth of his second child.

Brewers endure all-around disappointment in ugly loss

The Milwaukee Brewers and Houston Astros entered 2013 with completely different expectations, but now have very similar records. Houston was completely committed to rebuilding, while the Brewers had postseason hopes.

Gruman: Shame if Carlos Gomez isn't an All-Star

MILWAUKEE -- A few months ago, I tried to sell everyone on how Carlos Gomez's new contract with the Milwaukee Brewers was going to be a steal for the team. I've been a believer in Gomez for quite some time, confident his breakout season was coming. It was just a matter of time. But, Carlos Gomez an All-Star? Well, maybe down the road. He's always had that kind of potential...

Milwaukee looks to finish strong in Houston

Based on his history at Minute Maid Park, Yovani Gallardo would appear to be in good position to continue his recent success. Riding a two-game scoreless stretch, the right-hander tries to win in Houston for the fourth straight time and help the Milwaukee Brewers record a winning road trip Thursday against the Astros. Gallardo (6-6, 4.41 ERA) has allowed seven hits over 14 scoreless...

Brewers look to keep building momentum in Houston

Improved pitching has provided a recent spark for the Milwaukee Brewers. The same could be said of the Houston Astros, and in particular Jordan Lyles. The Brewers look for another strong performance on the mound from an unlikely source, while Lyles attempts to continue his impressive stretch in the opener of this three-game set Tuesday night. Milwaukee's starting pitchers...

Carlos Gomez climbs Tal's Hill to make incredible catch (VIDEO)

Minute Maid Park, the home of the Houston Astros, is also home to one of baseball's most distinctive features: Tal's Hill, an elevated patch of grass in deepest center field. The hill — which juts back 436-feet—makes playing center field at the park harder than at any other stadium in the country. Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez had no such trouble...

Ron Roenicke: Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio gives manager vote of confidence

'Bad' loss finishes off Brewers' losing road trip

BY ANDREI GRESKAFOXSportsWisconsin.com Looking to close out the nine-game road trip on a positive note, the Milwaukee Brewers managed to do just the opposite, giving up an eighth-inning lead before falling to Houston 7-4 in the 10th inning off a three-run walk-off from Carlos Pena.
