Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - The Milwaukee Brewers exercised the 2016 option on manager Ron Roenicke Thursday.

The move comes just a few months after the club confirmed they were sticking with their skipper for 2015 after his job status came into question following a late-season collapse that cost the Brewers a playoff spot in 2014.

The Brewers were 51-32 and led the National League Central by 6 1/2 games on June 28, but wound up finishing third in the division and six games back in the wild card race at 82-80.

Roenicke, 58, has compiled a 335-313 record during his four seasons at the helm. In his first year in 2011, he led the Brewers to a franchise-record 96 wins and a division title.
