MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke and his entire coaching staff will return for the 2014 season, general manager Doug Melvin announced Saturday.
Roenicke, who recently won his 250th game as Milwaukee's manager, will be back to lead the Brewers for a fourth season.
"While this season has not been what we had hoped, I believe the continuity with Ron Roenicke's coaching staff is important," Melvin said. "With the club having 12 rookies and the arrival of a new group of Brewer farmhands, our coaches have worked hard to blend our young players' development with our experienced players as we work toward getting back to the postseason."
Ed Sedar will return as third base coach for the fourth season, his eighth on the major-league coaching staff. First base coach Garth Iorg, pitching coach Rick Kranitz and bench coach Jerry Narron will be back for their fourth year on Roenicke's staff, while hitting coach Johnny Narron returns for his third season and bullpen coach Lee Tunnell is back for his second year.
A few minor tweaks were made, as outfield coach John Shelby will no longer be in the dugout during games. Shelby was initially hired as Milwaukee's eye in the sky for games and may return to that role in 2014. With expanded instant replay coming for next season, Shelby could help with manager challenges from another location. Shelby will continue to coach the outfielders as well as assisting hitting coach Johnny Narron.
In addition to the seven returning coaches, Triple-A Nashville manager Mike Guerrero will join the major-league staff as a coach. He will assist Iorg with the infielders and have other responsibilities.
Guerrero has been in the organization since 1996 when he became the manager of the club's rookie team in the Dominican Republic. The 45-year-old has managed at the rookie level, Class-A advanced, Double-A and Triple-A for the Brewers. He's spent the past two seasons as the skipper in Nashville.
During his playing days, Guerrero spent nine seasons (1987-93) as a minor-league infielder with the Brewers and Royals.
"Mike Guerrero is being rewarded for the loyalty and hard work that he has provided the Brewers' minor-league organization for many years," Melvin said. "With the majority of his baseball career spent with the Brewers, Mike has touched and assisted in the development of a large number of past and present players."

Before Milwaukee's worst season in nine years officially came to a close, Marco Estrada provided one last glimmer of hope for 2014.
Continuing his impressive finish to the year, Estrada allowed just two hits and one run while striking out eight and not walking a batter in Milwaukee's 3-2 loss to New York in the season finale.
"Outstanding," Brewers manager Ron...
The Milwaukee Brewers' best hitter this season was young rookie shortstop Jean Segura. The Brewers acquired him last year when they traded Zack Grienke to the Angels and he has definitely lived up to expectations. He actually has played better than he was expected to and the Brewers will try to reward him for it.
The Milwaukee Brewers will reach out to Jean Segura's representatives...
As July came to a close, the Milwaukee Brewers had serious questions whether Yovani Gallardo was going to ever regain form as the consistent pitcher he had been for most of his six seasons in the big leagues.
An injury is never a good thing, but Gallardo's hamstring strain and the subsequent time on the disabled list completely turned his season around. Making his final start...

With the 2013 Brewers season now a part of history, we can say “at least they didn’t lose 90” and promptly forget about its low points. Still, even though 2013 was mostly a bummer, it wasn’t all bad. The Brewers did win 74 games, some of which were exhilarating. Before we put 2013 behind us, let’s take a moment to remember the silver...
The Milwaukee Brewers seem to enjoy facing the New York Mets on the road.
Having Carlos Gomez back may keep it that way.
Gomez is scheduled to return from his suspension Friday night when the Brewers attempt to continue their success at Citi Field.
Milwaukee (72-87) has won eight of nine visits to Flushing after taking the opener of this four-game set 4-2 on Thursday.
Marco Estrada had the Milwaukee Brewers headed to an uplifting finish until everything unraveled in an ugly eighth inning.
''My gosh, not the way you want to end a season,'' manager Ron Roenicke said.
Eric Young Jr. won the National League stolen base crown with 46 and helped the New York Mets rally past Milwaukee 3-2 on Sunday when the Brewers botched two bunt...
A day after getting one of their stars back from suspension, the Milwaukee Brewers could see another top player return from injury.
The Brewers hope to have Jean Segura in their lineup on Saturday against New York, while the Mets could be without David Wright again.
Neither Segura nor Carlos Gomez, who was suspended one game for his role in the fracas between Milwaukee and Atlanta...
Norichika Aoki hit a leadoff homer, Khris Davis connected three batters later and Yovani Gallardo pitched the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-2 victory over the New York Mets on Friday night.
Martin Maldonado also homered and Gallardo (12-10) went six innings to end his inconsistent season with a win. The right-hander, who won 33 games over the previous two years, finished 4-1 in eight...
While it was initially thought that there were no injuries arising out of Wednesday's benches-clearing fracas between the Atlanta Braves and the Milwaukee Brewers, that is not actually the case. Aramis Ramirez re-injured his problematic right knee during the scuffle.
According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, Ramirez hopes that the injury won't officially end his 2013 season...
Jimmy Nelson might need a bit more seasoning in the minor leagues before he sticks with the Milwaukee Brewers for good.
But the big right-hander is coming and coming fast.
"It may be too soon. He probably could use going back to Triple-A for a little bit" said manager Ron Roenicke. "But I don't know the circumstances we're going to be in. I don't know...
Never underestimate the importance of a player — even a proven veteran player — going home feeling good about himself at the end of a tumultuous season.
Yovani Gallardo was able to exit with a smile after putting the capper on a late-season push Friday night with six strong innings as the Milwaukee Brewers again beat the New York Mets 4-2 at Citi Field.
When Gallardo went on...
Johnny Hellweg didn't help his cause or his BB/9 but the Brewers win anyway.
Johnny Hellweg just didn't have it tonight. I know the box score says he only gave up one run but trust me he did not have it. There is a reason Alfredo Figaro was credited for the win and that reason is because Hellweg was lifted after 4 innings and 80 pitches only 37 of those strikes. He hit David...
