Brewers Hire David Stearns as Team’s Next General Manager

Houston Chronicle

Current and long-time Brewers general manager Doug Melvin announced in August that he would be stepping down from his general manager post at the end of the year.

“I’m 63 years old and I’ve been doing this for 20 years,” said Melvin, who previously served as general manager  of the Texas Rangers, prior to being hired by the Brewers. “My gut feeling tells me it’s time to give (Brewers principal owner) Mark [Attanasio] the opportunity to look over the next generation of general managers.”

That allowed the Brewers to look for a new general manager, who they wanted to be a master in the analytical field, and that’s just what they are going to get, as the team has hired Astros assistant general manager David Stearns as the next general manager of the Brewers.’s Brian McTaggart confirmed Ken Rosenthal’s earlier report about the Brewers hiring Stearns. The Brewers are expected by many to make the announcement on Monday.

Prior to joining the Astros, Stearns worked with the Pirates, Mets, and Indians. He turned 30 just recently, so it’s likely he will be the Brewers general manager for a long-time.
