Maryvale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - The Milwaukee Brewers have exercised the 2015 club option on manager Ron Roenicke.

The Brewers believe that Roenicke can get the team back on track after a 74-88 record in 2013.

"In picking up the option for 2015, it shows our confidence in having Ron lead this team on the field," said Brewers general manager Doug Melvin. "Last season was a difficult one, and Ron provided critical leadership with confidence and assurance that the Brewers can get back to the postseason."

Roenicke is heading into his fourth season as the manager of the Brewers, compiling a 253-233 record in his first three.

He led the Brewers to a 96-66 record, the most wins in franchise history, and a National League Central Division title in 2011. Milwaukee lost the NLCS to the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Brewers went 83-79 in 2012.
