MLB rumors roundup for May 4

21h


The first managerial casualty of the 2015 season is Ron Roenicke, who was dismissed Sunday night as the skipper of the 7-18 Milwaukee Brewers.

The Brewers will name Craig Counsell, currently a special assistant to general manager Doug Melvin, as Roenicke's replacement on Monday, according to a FoxSports report.

The overhaul at the top will only fuel speculation that more changes could follow. “Whether Roenicke's firing reflects some lingering faith they can milk a wild-card bid out of their aging crew remains to be seen. But if there's a big-league roster that deserves to be broken up for parts, it might be Milwaukee's,” writes ESPN.com’s Christina Kahrl. “Wish Melvin luck; the bad spot that Roenicke has been freed from isn't likely to get better.”
