Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin is expected to meet next week in California with team owner Mark Attanasio to discuss Ron Roenicke’s future with the team.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Melvin will travel to Colorado Springs this week to meet with officials from the Brewers’ new Class AAA affiliate and then on to Phoenix to monitor the team’s instructional camp. He’ll then go to Los Angeles to meet next week with Attanasio.
Roenicke reportedly lives close to Los Angeles and has been told to keep time open next week to meet with Melvin and Attanasio. Roenicke should know at that time just where he stands.
Roenicke is under contract for the 2015 season, but whether or not he spends it on the bench remains to be seen.
The Brewers went 9-22 after August 25th, going from first place in the National League Central all the way out of the playoff picture. They ended their season Sunday with a 82-80 record.
Melvin told Tom Haudricourt of the Journal Sentinel, “Nothing is going to happen this week. The best thing is to let the emotions settle down and sit down and evaluate it.
