Brewers extend contracts of Melvin, Roenicke
Melvin's new deal runs through the 2015 season. Roenicke's contract will go through 2014 with a club option for 2015.
The Brewers are coming off a 96-66 season and NL Central title last season, Roenicke's first as a manager. They lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL championship series.
Having lost Prince Fielder to free agency and beset by injuries early this season, Milwaukee is off to a 12-17 start.
Melvin also received a promotion and will also be the team's president of baseball operations as well as the GM. Melvin previously had been the team's executive vice president.
