The Milwaukee Brewers announced that Ned Yost has been dismissed as the manager of the team. The announcement was made by Brewers Executive Vice President and General Manager, Doug Melvin.
"This is a very difficult move to make, and we appreciate all of the work that Ned has done to develop this team into a contender," Melvin said. "In the end, this was a collaborative decision made to put our Club in the best position for the final two weeks of the season."
Brewers third base coach, Dale Sveum, will take over in an interim role as manager for the remainder of the season. Bench Coach Ted Simmons has been reassigned to an advisory role. Any other coaching changes will be announced at a later time.
The Brewers will hold a press conference tonight in Chicago, where they are getting ready to face the Cubs in the start of a 3-game series on Tuesday.
