2011 Milwaukee Brewers Roster
After finishing in 3rd place in the National League Central with a 77-85 record in 2010 the Brewer fans are eagerly awaiting a climb to the next level.
Rookie manager Ron Roenicke hopes the Brewers can get a fast start in 2011. He was a coach for 11 seasons on the LA Angels staff under manager Mike Scioscia. Bench coach Jerry Narron. Milwaukee’s long-time announcer Bob Uecker is back for his 40th year. Bob Uecker had major heart surgery last April (2010) to repair a leaking aortic value. We at baseballhistorian.com wish him a speedy recovery.
A bummer for Milwaukee fans - new star free-agent pitcher Zach Greinke starts the 2011 season on the disabled list and first string catcher Jonathan Lucroy is in the DL with a fractured finger.
