MILWAUKEE (AP) — David Stearns is stepping down as the Milwaukee Brewers’ president of baseball operations.
Matt Arnold will take over the lead role in overseeing the team’s baseball operations. The team said Stearns will still have an advisory role to owner Mark Attanasio.
The Brewers announced the transition Thursday.
Arnold has been the Brewers’ senior vice president and general manager since 2020. Stearns led the Brewers’ baseball operations during a run of sustained success.
The Brewers’ franchise-record string of four straight playoff appearances ended this season.
