Brewers announce Minor League coaching staffs

The Milwaukee Brewers today announced their Minor League coaching staffs for the 2015 season. Each staff of the organization's top three levels remain the same from last year.

Gary Lucas joins the Brewers organization as pitching coach at Class-A Wisconsin. He spent the past 15 years as a pitching coach in the Twins organization, most recently at Class-A Fort Myers of the Florida State League in 2014. Also joining the Timber Rattlers staff is Liu Rodriguez. The former middle infielder was a coach with the Rookie Arizona Brewers last season. Steve Timmers begins his first season as strength and conditioning specialist at Wisconsin following two seasons in the Minor League system of the Braves.

The coaching staffs at Rookie Helena and Rookie Arizona remain the same from last season with the exception of Rodriguez, who is now at Wisconsin. Jose Ramos joins the Rookie Dominican Summer League Brewers as a pitching coach. He previously worked as a scout with the Brewers in the Dominican Republic.
